IANAL, but this has yet to be proven, AFAIK.

One approach that hasn't been tried, to my knowledge, is educating the insurance companies about how they can potentially reduce *their* liability for payouts by requiring that real, actionable security BCPs such as BCP38/84, running closed resolvers, implementing iACLs, et. al. are implemented by those they insure.

Does anyone have insight into examples of how insurance policies have been paid out as a result of losses stemming from availability-related security events?

Another approach is educating the 'risk management' and 'business continuity' communities about the risks and how to mitigate them, and how doing so enhances business continuity.
