Cyber Insurance: The Reality from the Infosec Frontline

Explore the findings of a Sophos-commissioned study into the cyber insurance experience of 5,600 professionals working at the infosec frontline. It reveals how their experience of obtaining cyber insurance coverage has changed and the impact of cyber insurance on their cyber defenses.

With ransomware a major driver of both cyber insurance purchase and claims, the study also shines light onto how often cyber insurance policies pay out in the event of an attack and the types of costs that are addressed, including how often insurers pay the ransom.

It’s not just you. Most organizations are finding it tough to secure the cyber insurance cover they need. The ever-increasing frequency and severity of cyberattacks, coupled with growing remediation costs, have caused premiums to soar and coverage to shrink. Sophos can help you put in place the strong cybersecurity controls you need to help optimize your cyber insurance position.

Good Cybersecurity Controls Can Help You Secure Affordable Cyber Insurance

Cyber insurance is all about managing risk and cost. By minimizing the risk of experiencing a cyberattack, you reduce the risk for your insurer, which in turn makes it easier to get the insurance cover you need.

To reduce risk, insurance providers increasingly stipulate strong protection requirements as a condition of providing cover. Here are the top cybersecurity controls to consider:


  • Multifactor Authentication (MFA)

  • Secured, encrypted, and tested backups

  • Email filtering and web security

  • Cybersecurity awareness training and phishing testing

  • Logging and monitoring/network protections

  • Vendor/digital supply chain risk management

  • Endpoint detection and response (EDR)

  • Privileged access management (PAM)

  • Cyber incident response planning and testing

  • Hardening techniques, including Remote Desktop Protocol (RDP) mitigation

  • End-of-life systems replaced or protected

  • Patch management and vulnerability management
