Consumer indifference is still a challenge for personal cyber insurers

March 9, 2020

Only about one in 10 connected Americans say they have insurance to help them recover from a cyberattack. And close to half do not know whether they have this protection, according to the Insurance Information Institute and J.D. Power 2020 Consumer Cyber Insurance and Security Spotlight Survey℠. Because of consumer confusion about their current cyber coverage, and the persistent idea that consumers are unwilling to pay more, insurers are faced with a challenge. They need to find a way to educate and inform consumers about the benefits of personal cyber insurance, and its value for helping them recover from thousands of dollars in personal losses after an attack.

Munich Re Global Cyber Risk and Insurance Survey 2022

whitePaper | May 20, 2022

Anticipating the risks of tomorrow is embedded in our DNA at Munich Re, which is why we have been involved in managing cyber risk from the first moment it became a consideration - and continue to keep pace with its lightning-fast development. As the challenges this risk class poses to the global economy grow, we, and the insurance industry as a whole, need to provide proper solutions capable of addressing risk capacity and sustainability for this line of business. The numbers clearly show that the need for cyber security and insurance is increasing steadily: Munich Re estimates global cyber premiums to be $9.2 billion (beginning of 2022) and expects that they will reach approximately $22 billion by 2025. Given the ever-increasing frequency and severity of cyber-attacks, our survey reveals that the insurance gap is disproportionately high. And the mismatch between risk awareness and implementation of protection measures and the need for more capacity for larger risks remains a real challenge in what is an increasingly difficult environment for the entire insurance industry.
