Social Engineering & Cybercrime Remain Top Cyber Insurance Concerns

Social Engineering & Cybercrime Remain Top Cyber Insurance Concerns

Ransomware garnered many of the cybercrime headlines in 2021 and 2022. Insurance carriers honed in on its devastating impacts, inspiring many insureds to put proper controls in place to help fend off such attacks. Research indicates that ransomware attacks have declined significantly over the past 12 months compared to 2021, and fewer companies are now paying ransoms. A 2022 survey of 300 U.S.-based information technology (IT) decision-makers regarding the impact of ransomware attacks on their organizations found that 25% of companies were victims of ransomware attacks over the past 12 months, a 61% decline from the previous 12-month period (source 3).

New War & Terrorism Exclusions Complicate Cyber Market

New War & Terrorism Exclusions Complicate Cyber Market

Cybercriminals are waging a constant virtual battle to steal or ransom money and valuable information. Now, insurers are worried about the growing threat that actual war may spill over into cyberspace due to the conflict in Ukraine and rising geopolitical tensions worldwide (source 1). To combat the potential for catastrophic losses arising from cyber war and terrorism, Lloyds and other major insurers are deploying exclusions starting in 2023 for state-sponsored and widespread attacks. These exclusions add more uncertainty for insureds even as cyber policies evolve to address the constantly changing threat landscape. It’s crucial for retail agents and insureds to understand how these new exclusions may affect their cyber coverage and exposures. A wholesale broker with deep expertise in cyber coverage and strong carrier relationships can help guide retailers and their clients through potentially confusing policy choices to build the optimal cyber program.

It was around 10:30 pm on a Saturday night when the email came in. One of the few on-duty employees read it and assumed it was a joke or some form of spam. The email said the network had been locked, and the company would need to pay a ransom of $400,000 to regain control of its system. Unfortunately, the email was not a joke. By Sunday morning, the company’s executive team realized the gravity of the situation. They had been hacked, and their network was now under the control of an anonymous bad actor.
