Busting Myths: The Real Meaning of ‘Inside the Firewall’ Underwriting

Busting Myths: The Real Meaning of ‘Inside the Firewall’ Underwriting

Are You Stuck in Yesterday’s Underwriting?

Believe you have a grasp on ‘inside the firewall’ underwriting? Brace yourself; you might be in for a shock. The industry’s current definitions have been peddling a view that is too narrow, focusing on erecting cyber defenses and assuming that’s enough. It’s the equivalent of a surveillance camera that only looks outward, ignoring the valuables inside. This leaves us with a rudimentary understanding that barely scratches the surface of the profound implications ‘inside the firewall’ underwriting truly presents.

It’s Time to Confront the Elephant in the Room

When you think about cyber risk, what comes to mind? Is it an image of hackers infiltrating your systems, like invaders storming a castle? If so, you’ve settled for an antiquated perspective, one that prioritizes building impenetrable walls while failing to recognize the treasure within – your business’s digital assets. This ‘batten down the hatches’ approach is not only incomplete, but it’s also dangerously naive. It’s time we bring the elephant in the room into the spotlight: your digital assets are the lifeblood of your organization, and they deserve a level of attention that matches their significance.

Toppling the Status Quo – Data Like You’ve Never Seen Before

“We have all the data we need.” You’ve likely heard this phrase echoing in boardrooms and conference calls. It’s a comforting illusion, a blissful ignorance that we’re doing enough.
