Protect yourself and your clients before — as well as after — a breach

April 25, 2022

Cyber insurance continues to be a hot topic…and a hot commodity. According to a recent article in The Harvard Business Review, “The severity of financial consequences has been profound. Ransoms have rocketed from five-figure price tags into the millions, including $10 million reportedly paid by Garmin. Several ransom demands were far higher before being negotiated downward, according to clients of mine worldwide. All of which is further escalation of a worrisome trend: A recent report by Hiscox shows insured cyber losses of $1.8 billion in 2019, up an eye-popping 50% year over year.” 

And there seems to be no end in sight. As a result, insurers are tightening up on payouts and are looking for mistakes and missing pieces before they consider providing compensation for a breach. 

Many MSPs are finding cyber liability insurance policies are getting more expensive (if you can get them at all), with lower coverage limits, and added exclusions. You need to do more to protect yourself and your clients to reduce risks in the event of a breach. Compliance Manager GRC can help. The compliance platform helps you: 

  • Automatically track and manage compliance with the specific IT security requirements of each client’s cyber risk insurance policies.  
  • Track and manage custom “standards” you create to match any specific or unique IT requirements that are built into major contracts your clients have with their suppliers, vendors, or customers.  
  • Qualify for specially priced, lower cost cyber insurance policies available only to Compliance Manager GRC subscribers.  
  • Use automated scans to identify unsupported operating systems and software, even without agents running on those devices.
