In this Spotlight podcast* we’re joined by Andrew Jaquith, the CISO at QOMPLX to talk about how the COVID pandemic is highlighting longstanding problems with cyber risk management and cyber resilience. We also talk about how better instrumenting of information security can help companies get a grip on fast-evolving cyber risks like human-directed ransomware campaigns.
We talk to Bruce McDonnell of the East West Institute about how insurers are responding.
In this episode of the podcast (#117), we go deep on one of the hottest sectors around: cyber insurance. In the first segment, we talk with Thomas Harvey of the firm RMS about the problem of “silent cyber” risk to insurers and how better modeling of cyber incidents is helping to address that threat. In part II, we invite Chip Block of the firm Evolver back into the studio to talk about the challenge that “converged” cyber physical systems pose to insurance carriers as they try to wrap their arms around their exposure to cyber risk. Editor’s note: as an experiment this week, we’re posting each interview as a separate download, to see if that makes it easier for listeners to jump to the content they’re most interested in.
