Insurance Journal Announces the Launch of Cyber Newsletter

June 5, 2019

Today, Insurance Journal premiers a brand new bi-weekly newsletter for insurance professionals and risk managers who are serious about cyber. It’s called Insuring Cyber. This newsletter is an in-box resource for those who value a full view of what’s happening with cyber on state, national and international levels but don’t have the time to sort through what’s most important to know. Insurance issues, markets and coverages. Regulations and laws. Political and legal developments. The latest research. The latest breaches. Cybersecurity. New technologies.

The newsletter is edited by Insurance Journal East region editor Elizabeth Blosfield.

“Keeping pace with technology and the risks associated with it can be a challenge for many businesses, and buyers are increasingly recognizing the importance of cyber insurance for protection, particularly from a business interruption standpoint,” said Blosfield. “According to a recent Marsh report on the cyber market, estimated total capacity in the cyber insurance market increased to $1.8 billion last year, three times what it was in 2015. As cyber insurance continues to be a rapidly growing and changing area of the insurance industry, insurers in the space will need to remain up-to-date on opportunities and developments in order to be competitive. This newsletter will serve as a resource for those wanting to stay informed about the latest news impacting the cyber insurance industry, where the coverage is headed and how the space is continuing to evolve.”

Newsletter launch sponsor Risk Placement Services (RPS) has made the newsletter free to recipients. RPS is a leading Managing General Agent/Underwriting Manager and nationally focused wholesale insurance broker. For more than 20 years, the team of Technology & Cyber experts have been helping agents and brokers design coverage from top-rated carriers for the complex risks of the tech industry.

“RPS is committed to giving our clients – independent agents and brokers – the tools they need to be successful in the world of cyber,” said Joel Cavaness, President, Risk Placement Services. “Insurance Journal is a trusted source of news and I’m confident the new cyber newsletter will give them the latest information in this area so it’s a natural fit for us. We’re proud to be the launch sponsor.”
