Cyber insurance refers to an insurance product developed to help organizations hedge against the potentially devastating consequences of several cybercrimes, including ransomware, malware, distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, or other illegal procedures utilized to compromise a network and the organization’s sensitive data. Also referred to as cybersecurity insurance or cyber risk insurance, these policies are personalized to help an organization mitigate particular risks. As the number of devices, applications, etc. increases, a company becomes more vulnerable to cyber-attacks. Just like organizations insure against different business problems, natural calamities, and physical risks, they critically require insurance coverage for cyber threats as well.
Growing digitalization within business organizations and economies has generated different challenges related to the management of digital privacy and security. Management of digital and internet-based risks has become one of the prime priorities for organizations owing to rapidly rising incidences of digital frauds, cybercrimes, cyber stealing threats, and data security breaches. Despite implementing powerful cybersecurity solutions for mitigating and curbing cyberattacks, losses incurred due to data security breaches continue to be notable, thereby affecting the revenue margins of organizations. All these factors are expected to encourage organizations to acquire cyber insurance policies. Most cyber insurance policies and plans cover a wide range of cyber risk losses that may suddenly arise from different kinds of cyberattacks.
Further, with increasing cyber threats, including identity theft, information leakage, and ransomware, monetary losses across organizations are foreseen to rise at a steady pace. Thus, using cyber insurance policies for eliminating cyber risk and its potential consequences continues to be a critical necessity for organizations. Some modern cyber insurance plans offer additional coverage for physical damage to hardware and coverage for income loss. Cyber insurance plans can be personalized depending on the organization’s business security posture. Acquiring cyber insurance can be a great way to mitigate the losses caused by the data security breach. However, it should complement cybersecurity technology as part of a comprehensive cyber risk management strategy.
