With ransomware attacks increasing in both frequency and severity, it is critical that the insurance industry looks to introduce technology into the cyber insurance solution to help stop the surge. This is according to Graeme King, Managing Director – Cyber at Volante Financial & Professional Lines in his article “The insurance market should not be held to ransom” published this week in Insurance Day.

Volante Global has been working with cyber security solution specialists GBMS Tech on ways to offer clients endpoint multi-layered security technology as part of its cyber insurance offering. The multi-faceted ransomware product is designed to deliver that combination of technology and cover at an acceptable premium level.
