Cyber Insurance: Is This the Beginning, Middle or End?


Watch Now on Demand!

Many in the insurance industry are on increasingly high alert after a recent explosion of ransomware incidents, with attacks rapidly growing in scale and sophistication. Recent attacks have affected businesses, schools, hospitals, critical infrastructure, government systems and even the insurance industry itself as several insurers have seen ransomware incidents within their own operations.

As ransomware evolves, concerns have been raised about the state of the cyber insurance marketplace. Some are questioning whether insurers can keep up with increased demand or if cyber exposure is too big for the private sector to handle alone.

In a recent Insurance Journal poll, more than 70% of respondents said they were somewhat worried about the state of the cyber insurance industry given the recent escalation in ransomware incidents, and nearly 30% of respondents said they were very worried.
