re: Don't Waste Your Money On Cyber Breach Insurance
John -- you are dead on right regarding the title.- It does not-jive with the content of the article-and should-actually be more like:- "Don't Rely Solely on-Cyber Insurance"

One major takeaway from-the-article is that network security and privacy insurance is often-part of a balanced approach to network security and privacy-risk management.- In other words, the purchase of this insurance-should-work hand-in-hand with other risk management tools.-And, money spent on the insurance will have been wasted if these other risk management tools are not also-put in action.

re: Don't Waste Your Money On Cyber Breach Insurance
Your article has excellent content on how to approach Cyber insurance, but the title quite misleading.- Also, don't forget the value of a good broker or consultant to review a policy before buying.- Many (if not all) of the pitfalls listed would be removed or significantly softened by a good broker or consultant.-
