I think there are a dozen schools or more that have purchased policies.
The devil is always in the details; so your ability to get coverage is
dependent on what it is you actually want covered. There was a
chronicle of higher education article on this recently (last six months
At Pepperdine; we are currently exploring two options from our regular
insurance carrier and expect to take out a policy this semester.

Subject: [CIO] Cyber Insurance
Our local insurance agent took an application from us for Cyber
Insurance. The underwriter didn't approve us. So, today we had a
conference call with our VP for Admin/Finance, the local agent, the
underwriter guy in Chicago and myself to go over the app to let us
know our shortcomings.
Then to my surprise, he stated not only did we fail (no news after
completing the app) but every college/university that has applied has
failed. Of course my first thought was why were we even talking.
Do any of you have Cyber Insurance? If so, please let me know how you
passed the test.
It is kind of like the professor who is complaining about how dumb his
students are until he shows us the test he giving.
