Peachey uses her experience in cyber insurance to weigh in on the changes in data quantification in the security insurance space in terms of responding to the current ransomware epidemic.
In another six months, I anticipate that there will be some progress and at least some sort of update on the data quantification and how insurance companies are able to use and leverage that to really approach the risk. … Another point is that insurance companies, even for them, did a pretty quick turnaround in terms of trying to respond to the ransomware epidemic.
