Insurance Update – Emerging Risk of Cyber Insurance

Posted On: Monday, December 4th, 2017  In: Blog

Emerging Risk of Cyber Insurance

Since its inception, insurance has always served to manage risk. In the 17th century, a fire could destroy a shop front, records, and an entire business. Fire insurance served as a means of managing this risk both financially and actively, as insurers owned fire brigades.

In the 21st century, cyber risk can equally destroy a business by destroying its records and its reputation.

Beyond providing insurance, the standards and guidelines developed by the industry have the potential to define best practices and act as pseudo-regulations. Organisations need a means to manage cyber risk outside of their risk appetite; the insurance industry can fulfil this need.

The insurance industry identifies emerging areas of concern and successfully navigate these trends when designing suitable insurance products that enable adequate protection.
Utilising our enhanced risk identification and management functionality enables us to better offer protection against this emerging threat.

Our Insurance Brokers currently work with several underwriters who offer Cyber Insurance Products to ensure we remain ahead of this evolving threat and are able to offer the best protection possible to our clients.
