Should Your Firm Invest in Cyber Risk Insurance case solution
Companies have been turning to cyber risk insurance as a way to better handle any resulting legal responsibility and cyber risks from data breaches. But is this approach? Herein, I examine the effect of cyber attacks on businesses, a number of the related U.S. law shaping private sector answers to data violations, as well as the extent to which cyber hazard insurance helps mitigate the cyber danger. I argue that companies must take a proactive stance toward handling cyber attacks-not only for their wellbeing, but also help secure vital national infrastructure and to improve general cybersecurity.
