According to Gartner, “Cybersecurity insurance policies protect organizations from losses due to security incidents. The nuance to these agreements can be complex and filled with exceptions. In order to receive the expected benefits from cybersecurity insurance, executive leaders must be part of the process.” 

The recent research report titled An Executive Leader’s Guide to Cybersecurity Insurance from Gartner provides executive leaders with information and insight that may help in consideration of cybersecurity coverage to include expectations for example exclusions. 

We believe you can read the complimentary report from Gartner to learn:  

  • “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.”
