Cyber security insurance won't protect your organization from threats
As email-borne cyber security threats become more sophisticated and frequent, many organizations are considering cyber security insurance to help mitigate losses incurred from cyber crime. Cyber security insurance can help to cover the cost of interruption to business, damage to the network, and loss of data in the wake of a cyber attack.
But cyber security insurance can't compensate for your biggest losses – the impact on your brand, loss of goodwill with customers, and the many hours of staff time it takes to recover after an attack. And many cyber security insurance policies may not cover attacks like whaling, where employees are duped into sending a large amount of money to a fraudulent account.
While cyber security insurance does offer some benefits, it must be part of a comprehensive plan for cyber security resilience that focuses on stopping threats and ensuring business continuity during successful attacks, in addition to recouping losses after an attack.
When you want advanced threat protection that can augment your cyber security insurance policy and improve your security posture to reduce premiums, Mimecast offers cloud-based email security services that help keep email protected and available.
