Effective Information Governance Can Improve Your Cyber Insurance Risk Profile

In today’s regulatory and legal environment, the governance and security of sensitive corporate information is a necessity. The loss of sensitive information due to employee negligence or theft and system breach can cost an organization large sums of money and create long term liabilities.

A popular method organizations can use to mitigate the risks and costs associated with a data breach, and hopefully lessen the frequency of executive nightmares, is to obtain cyber insurance. Just going through the application process can be an effective tool to spur the organization into adopting technology, processes, and procedures to lessen the risk of information leakage. Cyber insurance is an invaluable tool in the event of a breach and should be considered as a part of an organization’s risk management program.

But before issuing a cyber-policy, insurers will first assess an organization’s risk—their cyber-risk profile. What types of data do they handle; what types of safeguards do they currently employ, e.g., access controls, data loss prevention technology; does the organization have a published policy on the proper handling of sensitive information; do they regularly train employees on the policy? In other words, what are the organization’s information governance capabilities?

This webinar will explore the issues related to cyber-security risk profiles and explore industry best practices to reduce overall risk through the effective use of information governance practices.
