Check out my article, “At Risk: Insurance Coverage for Cyber Security and Data Breaches” in Strategize Magazine.

The fine folks at Strategize Magazine have published an article that I wrote, along with my colleague, Ken Trotter.  The article is titled, “At Risk:  Insurance Coverage for Cyber Security and Data Breaches.”  It’s in the January/February 2010 edition of the magazine.

Strategize is a magazine that promises:

* Even if you’re not that interested in the topic, it’s worth the click to see the cool online magazine format and graphic that they put with the article.

  • We’re both publishing machines these days! Nice work!

  • Scott:
    Thanks for the article. One area in which I would be interested in hearing more about would be the costs associated with the notification of credit card holders and potential third party losses for companies that rely on “my” company’s infrastructure to run their business (internet, utility, etc.).
    Thanks again.
