The expected boom in cyberinsurance

The New York Times published an article today predicting that there will be a surge in the purchase of what it refers to as “cyber insurance” – insurance covering a range of exposures relating to the breach of privacy and network security. The article has some significant exaggerations and misleading statements, and it quotes extensively from people whose livelihood depends upon cybersecurity breaches and the sale of insurance policies, but it provides a useful window on the current environment. The article places great importance on the recent guidelines issued by the SEC’s Division of Corporation Finance. Click here for WGA’s blog post and downloadable White paper discussing these new guidelines and their potential impact on companies’ legal exposure and insurance programs.
