OPM Security?
For years Bruce Schneier has held that Insurance will finally regulate data security and it is starting to look that way. This article is big on 'We're from Washington, and we're here to help.' This would be the same guys that brought you OPM, TSA and the IRS. If I have to choose between the Godless bastards in the insurance industry or the Godless bastards in Washington; well, the Godless bastards in the Insurance industry can't throw me into jail if they don't like me. And there is zero evidence that the government is doing better at this than industry. Something has to be done doesn't mean that the government has to do it.

Insurance should be a cornerstone!
Lol! I don't understand the attitude of contempt for cyber/breach insurance (and agents) that I occasionally run in to coming from the IT dept. Let's be honest here , true security is a fallacy as it stands today. This said , insuring the risk is probably one of the most prudent actions that one could take! We offer a complimentary and essential element of a security strategy and are not something to disparage and scorn in the same vein as the IRS. Do your best , insure the rest.
