Cyber Insurance Market: Snapshot

With technology now an important element of operations for every big and small business, vulnerability of business processes and critical data remains a question. Virtual reality, artificial intelligence, augmented reality, and robotics are commonly used technologies for business processes that carry risk of cyber threat. This is where cyber insurance comes into picture.

Cyber-attacks - across industry verticals- are on a constant rise that needs to be addressed. Cyber-attacks, however, differ from one another depending on the business vertical. For example, the BFSI sector mostly witness organized cyber-crimes, while the retail sector is continuously vulnerable. Distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) and ransomware are increasing threat for businesses in healthcare and media and entertainment. Public and telecommunications sectors, on the other hand, are subject to intelligent-focused cyber-attacks.

To address this, cyber-insurance plays a pivotal role. For businesses, cyber-insurance helps mitigate the cost of security breaches such as data destruction, data recovery, online fraud, ransomware extortion demands, and identity theft. Under cyber liability policies, for businesses, it typically includes property and crime coverage. Notification expenses and loss or damage to electronic data are also sometimes covered under cyber liability policies. Losses incurred due to damage, disruption, corruption, and theft are also sometimes covered by cyber insurance policies. With such expansive scope of coverage, this saves businesses from monumental monetary and intellectual property loss in the event of a cybercrime eventuality.
