Survey finds that more firms are looking to insure against data loss

A growing number of businesses are looking to protect themselves against the risk of data breaches and other security problems by purchasing specialist insurance, a new study has shown.

Research conducted by Veracode and the New York Stock Exchange revealed that the majority of public companies in the US have some form of cyber security insurance, Dark Reading reports.

Of these, 91 per cent of policies include protection for business interruption and data recovery expenses. Meanwhile, 54 per cent have coverage that can reimburse them for fees such as PCI fines, breach notifications and extortion, while 35 per cent of respondents say they want protection against software coding and human errors that lead to data loss.

Chris Wysopal, co-founder and chief technology officer at Veracode, said such precautions are becoming the norm in an environment where costs for rebuilding after an incident are growing. He noted that as interest in this area grows, it will be up to the cyber insurance industry to define standards and best practices for what firms can expect to be covered.

“I was surprised that 35 per cent already are [seeking] insurance for coding and human errors,” he said. “That number will increase when there’s standardisation around what that means.”

The research also found that nine out of ten executives agree that regulators should hold companies responsible for breaches if they have failed to secure their data adequately.

However, many respondents also agreed that third parties should also bear their share of responsibility in the event of a security incident. Some 90 per cent of companies say software vendors should be held liable for vulnerabilities found in their software, and 65 per cent have either already or are planning to include liability clauses in their contracts with their software suppliers.

More than half of executives at public companies expect their shareholders will demand more transparency surrounding cyber security in the coming years, with Mr Wysopal noting that boards are increasingly concerned about the brand damage that can result from a breach.

What Our Customers Say About Us

I have recently used R3D to retrieve data from an external hard drive.

I called Andy at 11pm on a Saturday after my hard drive failed, he immediately ran through the symptoms and calmed my fears that all data was lost, but was honest that data recoveries are not always successful.

I required the data immediately as it was for a deadline the following Friday, the issue was I was based in London and the lab based in Sheffield.

After searching all data companies in and around London none would answer my call on a Saturday. In fact no one else would answer my call or say they could look at my case on the Sunday.

I took the drive myself to R3D and was very impressed with their facilities. Andy also explained the whole process and what they were doing at each stage.

Unfortunately the hard drive had a physical failure and needed to be rebuilt to have any chance of recovering the information.

After starting the rebuild at 4pm on the Sunday, Andy advised it would take him and his team until the morning to know if any information was recoverable - fantastic I thought. Andy and Mark got to work on my drive as soon as I left and by 10pm on Sunday they had retrieved almost the entirety of the information of my hard drive.

I cannot reccomend R3D highly enough, they are clearly experts in their field and have a passion for what they do. Through the whole process Andy kept me informed of progress and explained everything they were doing.

If you have a crisis or any data recovery needs these are the guys you need!
