In this special holiday episode I have both a special guest and a special co-host.  My co-host is Jim Kuiphof and we got a chance to talk with Tim Francis about Cyber Insurance and Liabilities pertaining to ransomware attacks.  Jim in a Director of Information Security for Spectrum Health and Tim is a Enterprise Lead for Cyber Insurance at Travelers.

These are just some of the questions and topics that we covered:

  • What is cyber liabilities insurance and why do some think they don't need it?
  • While ransomware attacks are increasing in the public eye, some websites are reporting that ransomware attacks aren't being reported and that is a problem. 
  • What trends are you seeing in the insurance industry right now?
  • Are attacks truly going up or it is just that there is more 'visibility' in to this area of cybersecurity?
  • Why are some incidents just not being talked about?

A HUGE thanks to the following sponsors, as we raised over $1,500 for three charities!

Also a shout out to Brock from Okta, Ryan from Optiv and Allan from Recorded Future for supplying some great prizes!
