It's not for everyone, but Illinois Wesleyan University gets its Cyber
Insurance through *Educational and Institutional Insurance
Administrators (aka EIIA). *They provide a number of such protections,
but their mission is to serve Christian institutions of higher education.
We just recently had an IT/Security Analysis visit with EIIA. It was
very helpful. Besides reviewing our security policies and procedures,
the EIIA rep also reviewed the types and levels of coverage they provide
their member institutions.
