We have Always been big fans of the Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report. And we love this years’ edition even more than before because of these findings:
…it shows that the majority of the insurance payouts go toward costs within the phase of breach recovery associated with determining just which creek you are up and your current paddle supply. Legal guidance during the crisis management phase and forensics investigations are where the majority of the cash is going. Source: Verizon DBIR 2016, page 65
Now who told you to reconsider the need for a so-called cyberinsurance when it covers the costs of your lawyer only… Ahh, yes, we did…
Lesson learned: better invest your money in simple security controls (like better security awareness and adequate patchmanagement) and of course #ditchcyber!

“Cyber liability insurance is becoming an increasing necessity” claims a Tripwire report. And the net-security article mentions a KPMG survey that reports that over 74% of businesses do not have a cyber security liability insurance. And that less than half of thoses who do, are convinced that the insurance will cover the actual costs of a breach.
So, this clearly marks the start of a new campaign to open a new, profitable market for insurance companies. But it’s another poor try by the cyber industry. Apart from the fact that current cyber insurance offerings are immature, there is a bigger problem. As we stated earlier (like here and here), most breaches are not due to unexpected attacks on the internet, most companies do not fall victim of an attack. Most breaches occur because of failing internal, organisational and technical controls. And will insurance companies cover your own failures? Traditional insurance doesn’t cover theft if a homeowner didn’t lock his house. Same for cyber. Same small print. And when the insurance markets is maturing, we can expect a lot more small print.
#ditchcyber and if your cyber consultant wants you to insure your cyber risk, ditch your consultant too.

The Big Cyber excuse is ditched as well…
In this case a CyberSecurity Insurance company finds that there was no such thing as a cyberattack at BitPay. It was their own stupidity that created the opportunity for theft of bitcoins. As is often the case…

So be sure to read the small print carefully and by all means #ditchcyber

We can report a major breakthrough for our #ditchcyber campaign… We just learned that the Dutch national broadcasting company NOS ditched cyber. The initiative came from their tech editor @schellevis.
