In our last GovCyberHub Podcast, we sat down with two experts from CrowdStrike – Deborah Blyth and Adam Cottini – to discuss the cyberthreat landscape facing state and local government agencies, and how the increased threat is making cybersecurity insurance more essential for these organizations than ever before. We also discussed how the sharp uptick in larger cyberattacks is making cyber insurance policies harder to access for government agencies at a time when they really need them.
Following that discussion, we had additional questions about cyber insurance, in particular. After all, if cyber insurance is so essential, then our listeners should know where they can get it, what they should look for in a policy, and what exactly they can expect a cyber insurance policy to cover.
To get answers to these and other cyber insurance questions, we brought back Adam Cottini, the Director of Business Development for Legal and Insurance at CrowdStrike, to record another cyber insurance-themed episode of the GovCyberHub Podcast.
In our second conversation with Adam, we talked about the kinds of companies that offer cyber insurance policies and sought to shed some light on the different players that make up the cyber insurance ecosystem.
During the discussion, GovCyberHub Executive Editor, Ryan Schradin, asked Adam about the different provisions and riders that may be in a cyber insurance policy, and what may and may not be covered should a government organization purchase a policy.
Ryan and Adam also looked at the impact that the increasingly sophisticated threat landscape and rising cyber risk is having on both insurance companies and the cyber insurance policies that they’re offering – and how this is subsequently impacting the ability of government organizations to buy insurance policies.
