Topic: Trends in the Cyber Insurance Market: Challenges and Opportunities
Abstract: The global cyber insurance market has seen a significant increase in recent years, largely due to the purchase of cyber insurance by large corporations and multinational companies. This has left small and medium-sized businesses as an untapped market for cyber insurance, presenting a particular challenge for insurers to provide the appropriate coverage to the millions of businesses worldwide. As sophisticated attacks continue to increase, smaller companies are becoming more and more of a target, especially as larger corporations fortify themselves by investing more and more in cyber security and insurance.
Predicting the impact on information security has become increasingly difficult. Cyber incidents can have widespread consequences, affecting the insured and their customers, vendors, and partners. This complexity requires insurers to design comprehensive policies that cover various potential liabilities. On the other hand, these challenges have created opportunities for innovative cyber insurance products and services. This webinar focuses on understanding cyber insurance market trends and exploring how insurers can navigate the ever-evolving cyber landscape and enhance their risk assessment methodologies. In doing so, insurers can effectively reach beyond large corporates to deliver cyber insurance solutions for micro, small and mid-sized businesses.
- How cyber insurance can become more mainstream
- Modes of risk analysis in a rapidly changing threat landscape
- How insurers can help businesses mitigate risks and prevent potential cyber incidents
- Methods for reducing claim frequency and severity
