Articles - Plug the cyber education gap with effective risk management

According to Munich Re’s Global Cyber Risk and Insurance Survey (2021), the global cyber insurance market is likely to reach a value of approximately $20 billion by the year 2025. To successfully exploit this growth, insurers and brokers need to effectively grasp accurate cyber underwriting, and the distribution of cyber insurance to companies large and small. These pertinent themes will be two key areas of focus at Intelligent Insurer’s upcoming Commercial Lines Innovation Europe event (October 11–13).

 Agenda highlights include two dedicated cyber panels:

 Plug the cyber education gap with effective risk management services
 • Ensure underwriters collaborate effectively with broker partners to close the education gap on cyber risk, create customer feedback loops to keep on top of a fast-evolving landscape with new and emerging threats, and use these insights to better advise and educate insureds

 • Reduce the complexity of cyber products to make it easier for businesses to buy direct and simpler for brokers to compare and explain coverage, and tap into growth opportunities in an underinsured market by giving brokers the tools they need to answer queries on price and coverage, and handle common objections
 • Improve the validity of customer data by developing more frictionless ways to obtain information, such as pre-populating forms with publicly available data, and provide risk insights at the point of quote to encourage honest disclosure
 • Deliver more than just a cyber policy with valuable risk management services, including instant risk assessment, vulnerability reports, and cyber awareness training, and support insureds to implement protections for key entry points as part of a comprehensive risk engineering approach
 • In the absence of historical data, understand how you can use AI to keep up with evolving risks and action next steps, based on calculations of long-term damage to intangible assets such as goodwill and reputation
 Transform the profitability of your cyber book with new tactics for predicting and mitigating loss
 • Tackle the deadly combination of scant historical data and partial or inaccurate customer data, and debate strategies for accessing, ingesting, and analysing external real-time data feeds with AI and machine learning to validate self-reported data, remove bias, and obtain a more complete view of cyber risk
 • Define the key cyber perils in portfolios that will be the most likely drivers of accumulated risk, identify the assets that are most susceptible to systemic cyber events and then define strategies for mitigation
 • Understand the importance of risk management services in transforming the profitability of your cyber book, work collaboratively with brokers and insureds to develop a value proposition beyond the policy, and co-create innovative tools, including vulnerability reports and cyber awareness training to inform risk assessment and prevent losses occurring
 • Address the threat of critical infrastructure being hit by a catastrophic cyber incident and debate how the insurance industry can respond to the growth of the internet of things and 5G as the number of connected points increases and bandwidth grows
 As the frequency and severity of cyber events continues to plague companies large and small, do not miss this opportunity to discuss how insurers can better help their clients to navigate this growing threat to their business.
 We look forward to welcoming you to the event in November.
