Ransomware attacks on state and local agencies, healthcare systems, and educational institutions have grown exponentially over the past several years, in part because they’re seen as “soft targets” without the cybersecurity expertise to protect themselves well.  


For many organizations, the idea of purchasing cyber liability insurance may be a good idea, especially if they don’t have the resources to undertake extensive cybersecurity measures. It is not just another line item to be included in a budget, however – there are different kinds of cyber insurance, which cover different kinds of risks, and many insurers require specific security precautions to be in place in order to qualify for it. 


Join us as thought leaders from government and industry discuss resilience before a breach and the role of cyber insurance in protecting against the worst consequences of ransomware and whether it is the right decision for your agency.
