CYBER EMERGING ISSUES
- Most underwriters are requiring a completed ransomware application, multi-factor authentication, and fully implemented cybersecurity measures before binding new and renewal accounts.
Acceptable cybersecurity measures include a backup solution (disconnected or segregated from your network), next-generation anti-virus protection with endpoint detection & response, email filtering solutions, multi-factor authentication for privileged users, email, remote network access, and proper phishing training for all employees.
- Difficult cyber classes include healthcare, real estate, collection agents, title/escrow, municipalities, schools, managed service providers, utilities, law firms, technology, including game developers/distributors, and any risk with a high number of PII or PHI records.
- Watch out for ransomware (extortion) sublimits including co-insurance, social engineering callback requirements, cybercrime that excludes third-party funds (escrowed), short periods of restoration, or indemnity from business income and/ or reputational harm related losses.
