“I trust my IT guy and he says we are secure enough and not at risk.”
"I don't worry about testing the security of my network. I have insurance for that."

Do these statements sound familiar? Is this the approach you and your organization take when dealing with the ever-growing challenges of cyber-security? If so, we would like to have a conversation. Cyber-crime is growing exponentially throughout the United States and around the world which has definitively changed the conversation within businesses and organizations everywhere from "if we get breached" to "when we get breached, how bad is it?" A single approach to tackling the challenge of cyber-security is no longer effective. Businesses must adopt a multi-pronged strategy to protect their resources, plan for incidents and manage the repercussions. This strategy should be based on the New Cyber-Security Triad - strong It Security Services, comprehensive Cyber Insurance, and sound Legal Guidance & Planning.
