Drawing conclusions
These numbers are fascinating, but it's hard to draw firm conclusions about the value of cyber insurance or the areas of greatest potential risk. It would be interesting to know more about the submitted claims that the insurers didn't cover -- and why.

Re: Drawing conclusions
@Marilyn  Yes, there's still a lot we don't know. The report was really aimed at an audience of insurers, to give them info that would help them develop cyber-insurance policies going forward. My takeaway was that cyber insurance can be a big help, but might not cover as much as you'd like it to, and you should negotiate and plan accordingly. I think these numbers are something a CISO and a CRO should look at together.

Re: Drawing conclusions
Totally agree @Sara. It's a good baseline for a conversation with potential insurers. Really does  shine a spotlight on the fact that the cyber insurance industry is in its infancy.
