Cyber insurance policies
> "Many companies don't know policies often don't insure loss of reputational risk, user trust, or critical intellectual property."

There are policies out there that may cover these things, but -- of course -- you have to ask for them.

The real key here is for businesses to imagine all of the possible consequences of something going wrong, do a risk-management assessment, and then ask the broker about coverage accordingly.

Re: Cyber insurance policies
Cyber, Security, Ethical policies should be tied together.  All it takes is one nasty incident for the company to look for a fall guy; then employees realize they need to careful with what they are doing.

Re: Cyber insurance policies
Because cybersecurity, data stewardship, and related matters are such nascent issues for insurers to contend with, don't expect any merger of these considerations with general E&O umbrella policies anytime soon.
