Black Hat Top 3 and New Cyber Insurance Survey (Video)

What are three key takeaways from the 2022 Black Hat cybersecurity conference? BlackBerry Vice President for Threat Research & Intelligence, Ismael Valenzuela, shared his list during the most recent episode of BlackBerry LIVE.

Also during the broadcast, Valenzuela and his guests did a deep dive into the challenges and pitfalls faced by companies trying to buy — and keep — cyber insurance. 

In an exclusive study released during Black Hat, BlackBerry and Corvus Insurance surveyed hundreds of IT and cybersecurity business decision-makers within both small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) and large enterprises. The findings reveal that a sizable number of organizations are either uninsured or underinsured.

A majority of organizations also say they want their government’s help when it comes to covering certain types of cyber losses.
