Cyber insurance

"Cyber insurance" sounds like premium quality snake oil. I assume that any payouts would be in some obscure and valueless blockchain currency?

(Also, a pet peeve of mine: "cyber"-anything really does not mean what most people think the word means. It's one of those annoying stupid phrases from around 1995 that should really have gone away to "surf the web" long long ago, with an anchor (boat, not HTML) chained to its ankle...)
