I think this concept applies to traditional insurers, as well as newer tech-focused insurers, as they're all potentially on the hook for payouts due to business-disrupting events of all sorts - including DDoS-induced losses.

Perhaps your friend can provide some insight and/or pointers on this general topic?  Ideally, it would be a Good Thing to engage with the various actuarial organizations in order to brief them at properly-calibrated level of detail in order to educate them on this topic, followed by engagement with specific insurers.
