Cyber security – the seven key questions for businesses to answer

TL;DR understand what insurance you’re actually purchasing…:

The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) has launched its first-ever advice on cyber insurance, as well as outlining the seven key questions that businesses should address when considering cyber security.

In its guidance, newly published online, it urges businesses to focus on the following:

  • What existing cyber security defences do you already have in place?
  • How do you bring expertise together to assess a policy?
  • Do you fully understand the potential impacts of a cyber incident?
  • What does the cyber insurance policy cover (or not cover)?
  • What cyber security services are included in the policy, and do you need them?
  • Does the policy include support during (or after) a cyber security incident?
  • What must be in place to claim against (or renew) your cyber insurance policy?
