Stumbled Upon A Problem – SCW #63

This week, we welcome Albert "Nickel" Lietzau, V and Mike Volk from PSA Insurance & Financial Services! Nickel Lietzau and Mike Volk have heard that we are not huge fans of cyber insurance on SCW, and they have graciously agreed to subject themselves to our scrutiny. In the first segment we'll touch on common myths and misconceptions about Cyber Insurance and let Nickel and Mike set us straight.

Assuming Nickel and Mike survived the first segment, we're asking them for practical advice in this segment on how to consider and ultimately select the right cyber insurance program for you. We're looking for the usual suspects, gotchas, and recommended actions.
