Hacker Insurance Market Boosted By Cyberattacks

from the of-course-it-is dept

As with any big hack attack, suddenly people are scared out of their minds that the sky is falling, and something needs to be done. Into this picture, insurance agents will gladly leap, with their suddenly popular hacker insurance policies. Of course, since most of the anti-hacking insurance policies are written with very narrow rules, I imagine many of the computers hit weren’t eligible because they hadn’t been updated with the latest security patches.
