As businesses face more cyberthreats than ever before, many are seeing higher premiums. Meanwhile, insurance companies are looking for ways to skirt coverage obligations that end up proving far too expensive. In fact, some providers are losing profit at a high enough rate to leave the marketplace altogether, adding even more pressure on the remaining players.
