Cyber Coverage: What You Don't Know Might Hurt You

October 22, 2019

The threat of cyber-attacks – attempts by hackers to damage or destroy a computer network or system – continues to grow. So too does the threat of the “silent cyber” risk for insurers: the exposure to claims from polices that were neither intended to respond to, nor priced for, cyber-related events.
