A federal commission studying cybersecurity says a menu of reforms – from training cyber insurance underwriters to certifying cyber insurance products – are needed to keep the country safe.
The bipartisan Cyberspace Solarium Commission, established by the 2019 National Defense Authorization Act, says US cybersafety is a matter of national defense that transcends purely business concerns. Among the commission’s proposals: a federally-funded center to consider standards for cybersecurity insurance certifications, a national data privacy protection law, and a new bureau in the State Department dedicated solely to battling cyber threats.
“Our country is at risk, not only from a catastrophic cyberattack but from millions of daily intrusions disrupting everything from financial transactions to the inner workings of our electoral system,” says the commission in its report “A Warning from Tomorrow.”
The commission warns: “The country has lost hundreds of billions of dollars to nation-state-sponsored intellectual property theft using cyber espionage and that a major cyberattack on the nation’s critical infrastructure and economic system would ‘create chaos and lasting damage exceeding that wreaked by fires in California, floods in the Midwest, and hurricanes in the Southeast,’” writes reporter Andrew Simpson in this article in the Insurance Journal.
Read a summary of “A Warning from Tomorrow” here.
The Cyberspace Solarium Commission is co-chaired by Senator Angus King (I-Maine) and Representative Mike Gallagher (R-Wisconsin). Its members include cyber experts, private sector representatives, members of Congress and senior government officials. Their task: to come up with a strategic approach to cybersecurity that it refers to as “layered cyber deterrence,” designed to reduce the frequency and impact of cyberattacks.
A Warning from Tomorrow contains 75 specific recommendations. Many of them deal with the insurance industry and cyber liability coverage. “A robust and functioning market for insurance products can have the same positive effect on the risk management behavior of firms as do regulatory interventions,” the report states.
Here are some of the insurance highlights.
The bottom line, according to the commission: the US is “dangerously insecure in cyber” and “increasingly relies on networks of digital devices” that are vulnerable and easily compromised.
“The status quo is inviting attacks on America every second of every day,” the report concludes. “The status quo is a slow surrender of American power and responsibility.”
