The Cyber Security Insurance Questionnaire

May 16, 2022
Have you gotten stumped by some of the questions on your cyber security insurance questionnaire?
Aegis IT can walk through the jargon of the technical questions and help you answer them. We can also support the systems you have in place to keep your data safe.

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

Every insurance carrier has their own set of assessment questions.

Here are several common questions you might get asked on your questionnaire:
  • Do you or your company collect, store, process, or transmit protected or sensitive data such as credit cards or social security numbers?
  • Do you have policies and procedures for network access, account creation, and acceptable use policies?
  • Does your cloud service provider have a security program?
  • Do you perform regular backups and store them in a secure off-site location?
  • Do you use endpoint protection in the network?
  • What steps are you taking to detect and prevent ransomware attacks?
  • Do you have an anti-spam device to block phishing emails?
  • Are employees required to undergo annual security training?
  • Do you use intrusion detection software to detect unauthorized access to your computer systems?

As you can see, these technical questions might be tough to answer on your own. That’s where Aegis IT comes in.
