Cyber risks seem to be in the national headlines week after week. Recently credit reporting agency, Equifax was hacked and it is estimated that 143 MILLION Americans could have critical private information (such as social security numbers) compromised. On this episode of Profiles in Risk, I discuss cyber risks with Amit Rai of Cyber Boxer, an insurtech startup, based in India, on what is cyber risk, what are the most common types, how we can prevent them and we also get into the Indian startup scene and how that compares to the tech scene in the Valley.
NOTE: this episode was recorded before the Equifax attach became news.
