Companies that contract with vendors are now requesting that they carry cyberrisk insurance.
Daren Orzechowski, a New York-based partner at White & Case: "When we respond to a RFP we get asked about the security that we have. It's a very important thing now."
Orzechowski said that currently many of his clients are asking him about President Obama's recent executive order that authorizes the government to provide private companies that run critical infrastructure networks with "cyberthreat information."
"Insurance companies probably represent critical infrastructure under the financial services type of thinking," Orzechowski said.
