I don’t particularly mind what type of insurance it is, provided that it means that the activities of the CA are going to be overseen by some party who would have skin in the game in the case of a breach.

Audits are fine but the auditors don’t have skin in the game.

Although I was initially opposed to dropping the EV Insurance requirement, my thinking has changed as others have posted facts about the type of insurance that the EVGL require and appropriateness to its intended use. Symantec’s current position would be in favor of ballot 142 (Gerv’s elimination ballot). The article you linked to below seems to favor a different type of insurance than what we currently require. Are you thinking of proposing a change to the insurance type (i.e. Cyberbreach/cyberliability insurance)?
