The Cyber Security Insurance Questionnaire
The Cyber Liability Insurance Questionnaire
As with any other type of insurance, an insurance agent must ask your company questions to determine how risky it will be to offer coverage for your business.
The core of the cyber security questions centers around the data you collect and the protocols you have in place to protect that data.
Your answers to these questions are extremely important. If you do not have proper protocols in place to protect your data, you could be denied coverage.
When you start to review the questions, you may quickly discover that you need help, especially if you are a small business and don’t have a dedicated IT department.
Common Cyber Insurance Questions
- Do you or your company collect, store, process, or transmit protected or sensitive data such as credit cards or social security numbers?
