Submission How Anonymous Has Already Won: Insurance->

Raindance writes: "All the back-and-forth about Anonymous may obscure the real story: insurance. "even if Anonymous isn't behind the keyboard, so-called 'ethical hacking' is likely to increase in popularity. Given this, it'll become as common to hedge your risk from hacking as it is to hedge your risk from fire or flooding. But insurance companies aren't dumb, and it's likely that the premium on cybersecurity insurance will strongly reflect how much of a high-profile hacker target a company is. Just like it's more expensive to insure a coastal home from hurricanes, so too it'll be more expensive to insure a company popularly seen as brazenly greedy against hackers.""
