Energy firms’ security so POOR, insurers REFUSE to take their cash
They’re turning down MULTI-MILLION pound contracts…
By John Leyden, 27 Feb 2014
Underwriters are reportedly refusing to insure energy firms because poor security controls are leaving them wide open to attacks by hackers and malware infestations.
Lloyd’s of London told the BBC they had seen a surge in requests for insurance from energy sector firms but poor test scores from security risk assessors means that insurers are turning down potential multi-million pound contracts.
"In the last year or so we have seen a huge increase in demand from energy and utility companies," said Laila Khudari, an underwriter at the Kiln Syndicate, which offers cover via Lloyd’s of London, told the Beeb. “They are all worried about their reliance on computer systems and how they can offset that with insurance.”
Infosec experts called in to review energy sector systems come back with negative reviews. And that means offering “safety net” insurance against breaches is not viable as a business proposition.
"We would not want insurance to be a substitute for security," Khudari explained.

A retired navy senior chief petty officer gave our team tool kits on planet Arrakis and told us to build a network. I still use that kit to build networks. WIC-1Ts arrived. Second WIC-2T arrived. Smart Serial to DB60 cables arrived. Still waiting on the router to arrive. It will be r0, the frame relay switch. Sure hope it comes this weekend. I’m pretty sure its coming from New Jersey and not Turkey.
