Cyberrisk coverage is the concern of the day. The reasons are obvious. Cybersecurity incidents are frequent and enormously costly. A 2014 PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP report reveals three of four businesses responding to its U.S. State of Cybercrime Survey detected a security event in the past 12 months.
