Hearing planned next month on cyber insurance

The House Homeland Security Committee will hold a hearing in the next month on bolstering cyber insurance, an aide said today.

The committee has been meeting with industry and now plans “a hearing in March trying to figure out how to go from here, and how to build a robust cyber insurance market,” said Brett DeWitt, cybersecurity staffer for the panel.

The idea is to have a “market-driven approach” to the topic, DeWitt said at an event hosted by the Financial Services Roundtable to discuss the cybersecurity information sharing bill signed into law last year. He said the information sharing bill was a “building block” on cybersecurity that leads into cyber insurance legislation.
