Best 10 Books for Cyber Insurance:
The demand for cyber insurance is expected to grow exponentially over the next decade. Do the people selling and buying this valuable coverage understand the ins and outs of the product?
Do they understand the risks, threats, vulnerabilities, etc.?
We don’t expect everyone to be Bill Gates, a computer programmer or cyber security expert/businessman John Mcafee… but there are certain minimum requirements to have as a foundation for consumers and insurance professionals.
These are the Best 10 Books for Cyber Insurance:
An engaging and entertaining introduction to cyber insurance exposures and coverages. This book will help understand the risks of loss related to private data, network security, web and other digital media, and hazards of the digital world.
Insurance coverages available to protect against these losses, and basic objections to purchasing coverage are also addressed.
This book is written predominantly for retail insurance agents, and includes sales tools such agents will find helpful. The cyber self-assessment and executive protection checklists are also useful for all risk management minded businesses.
Small and medium sized businesses (SMBs) are particularly popular targets for cyber attacks. Knowing that these smaller businesses likely don’t have the resources required to fend off such attacks, and that they likely don’t have the budgets for the most sophisticated software solutions to prevent them, hackers are targeting SMBs more and more, doing huge amounts of damage in the process.
Some of the coverages that cyber insurance offers overlap with other forms of business insurance, but many coverages do not cover cyber risks. Having a broker who understands cyber insurance and who can provide you with coverage that is specifically customized to your SMB’s needs is imperative to having adequate insurance.
In this book, we’ll take a look at the threats, the insurance options and why your SMB should have this coverage.
