Gartner’s Executive Leader’s Guide to Cybersecurity Insurance: Cybersecurity Best Practices

Cybersecurity insurance policies protect organizations from losses due to security incidents. But, due to their complexity, executive leaders must be part of the process to receive the expected benefits from cybersecurity insurance. Here’s a guide to cybersecurity insurance for executive leaders from Gartner to provide analysis and recommendations.  And you can get the guide FREE, courtesy of HaystackID!

Cybersecurity insurance is risk transference. It represents a purely reactive incident response activity and does not negate the need for investment in prevention and recovery, but it can be an important part of a comprehensive cybersecurity program.  Executive leaders must be included and aware of discussions with cybersecurity insurance providers.  Gartner’s report titled An Executive Leader’s Guide to Cybersecurity Insurance provides executive leaders with information and insight that may help in consideration of cybersecurity coverage to include expectations and example exclusions.

Among other things, the practical guide to cybersecurity insurance can show you:

  • The importance of reviewing and understanding exclusion clauses by taking an example-based approach to questioning insurers.
  • Approaches to determine the impact of using insurer-provided recovery services by having a complete understanding of engagement contracts.
  • The need to align risk transference with business expectations by purchasing additional insurance products to meet business requirements.
