  • Hi Pratik, the SOC 2 framework doesn’t explicitly require cyber insurance. It requires the organization to invest in risk mitigation and one of the ways to do that is through cyber insurance. You could exclude it for now, but I believe your prospects and customers will require you to have it to ensure business continuity in the event of a cyber attack. Additionally, your auditors might dive into this and will recommend to have an insurance prior to the next audit.

    • Thanks for the reply, in the last sentence you mentioned Auditor will recommend having insurance prior to the next audit. does that mean, prior to the renewal of SOC2.

    • yes, they will want you to make progressive improvements to your program and will want to see in the next review evidence of cyber insurance.

    • Thank you!
