Risk & Insurance Magazine quotes me in: “Surprised That All Data Is Sacred”

In Surprised That All Data Is Sacred, Matthew Brodsky, senior editor/Web edition of Risk & Insurance®, wrote an interesting article about data breaches, insurance for data breaches, cyberinsurance coverage issues, and the Epsilon data breach.

Of course, my favorite part is the place where he quotes me about the issue of cyberinsurance policies:

With such a difference between one carrier’s cyberpolicy and another’s, the market is the “Wild West of insurance,” according to Scott Godes, [formerly] the Washington, D.C.-based counsel in Dickstein Shapiro’s Insurance Coverage Practice.

“There’s such a variety in the marketplace for cyber coverages,” he said.

There is more interesting discussion that goes on in the article, including comments from the CEO of a managing general underwriting agency, the person who runs the technology errors and omissions division at an insurance company, and others.
