Cyber Liability Insurance and MFA: Securing Against the Unknown

In this webinar you will learn:

  • What cyber liability insurance is and how it's calculated
  • Why cyber liability insurers take MFA into consideration when evaluating an organization
  • How to build a strong security strategy for the future

Cyber liability insurance, sometimes known as cyber insurance, acts as a general line of coverage to mitigate losses and costs from a variety of cyber incidents, including data breaches, network damage, and potential business interruptions.

To determine what coverage is necessary, cyber liability insurers calculate cost based on a variety of risk-factors, such as industry, data coverage, and, most importantly, the security measures already in place. Any insurance policy wants to make sure that you’re taking the necessary foundational safety measures to protect your system and users. Cyber liability insurers often look to MFA (multi-factor authentication) as an indicator of security safeguarding to validate the identity of your workers to establish user trust.

While MFA may seem like an item on an insurance requirement checklist, it has the potential to set foundations for a security strategy that’s proactive, not reactive.

Join us on September 9 to learn more about cyber liability insurance, MFA, and how to build a strong security strategy for the future.
