Understanding Cyber Insurance & Quantifying Risk

The cyber insurance industry is in turmoil as more and more businesses seek insurance protection against the onslaught of advanced threats, particularly ransomware, while both carriers and those seeking insurance lack the ability to automate risk and financial models to calculate security control improvements, improve response times and reduce exposure.

Join ThreatConnect and AHT Insurance for a live discussion about:

  • Near-term and future trends in the cyber insurance market
  • What companies can expect in terms of coverage, costs, and policy terms
  • Why it is necessary and possible to scope the risk scenarios that matter most to your business from a financial and operational perspective
  • How automated cyber risk quantification can reduce financial risk for underwriters, carriers, and the insured
