Michael P. Voelker quotes me in his Property Casualty 360 article, “After ‘Year of the Data Breach,’ Carriers Increase Capacity, Competition for Cyber Risks.”

In his article, After ‘Year of the Data Breach,’ Carriers Increase Capacity, Competition for Cyber Risks, Property Casualty 360°author Michael P. Voelker writes about cyber risks and cyber insurance.

The article opens:

There’s a good reason why 2011 is known among security professionals as the Year of the Data Breach.

The antics began in April, with a bold, high-profile data raid on Sony’s Playstation Network database—and ended with hackers scamming credit-card details, passwords and home addresses from the systems of intelligence-analysis firm Stratfor in December.

The article provides viewpoints from multiple people who deal with insurance and cyber risk issues.  Mr. Voelker also quoted me in the article, writing:

“The Cyber Liability insurance market is the ‘Wild West’ of insurance,” observes Scott N. Godes, [formerly] counsel at Dickstein Shapiro LLP. “It’s worthwhile going through a policy with a fine-toothed comb with someone who truly understands Cyber Liability.”
