Is Cyber Insurance Enough to Protect You?

Is Cyber Insurance Enough to Protect You?

Your cyber insurance won't protect you from ransomware.

Here's why:

It doesn't make your company resilient in and of itself.

Think of it like regular house insurance:

Just because you have insurance, it doesn't mean you shouldn't get a smoke alarm in your house and get contractors to check for gas leaks.

Here are 2 recommendations to be prepared for a ransomware attack:

1️⃣ Get a security score

You have to know how you appear to hackers to be able to prepare for attacks.

At SecurityScorecard, we show you what the hackers see and make it possible to maintain your resilience and posture actively.

2️⃣ Get an incident retainer

You don't want to be wondering who to call when somebody holds a virtual gun to your head and says: "Pay me $1M, or I'm going to delete your information."

You want to have a 24/7 hotline at your disposal with trained experts to deal with this situation.

SecurityScorecard offers such a ransomware retainer and helps you to mitigate a ransomware attack when you get hit.

➡️ Takeaway

Cyber insurance is a great tool and a must-have for your company.

But it won't make you resilient to ransomware itself.

You have to be prepared, have an incident retainer, and know who to call when an attack happens.
