Challenges, strategies and solutions for insurers

Rapid progress in the IT sector has consequences for insureds and insurers alike. The failure of IT systems can lead to substantial disruptions of both public and private life. Our power supply and healthcare systems are just as dependent upon the uninterrupted operation of IT systems as are our industries, commerce and transport.

Criminals are taking advantage of the internet as a new tool of the trade. Targeted cyberattacks on unsuspecting users are increasing exponentially, and the material losses are mushrooming into the billions.

In this publication, Munich Re’s experts present in concise form their knowledge and insights regarding the scope of cyberrisks and their implications for the insurance industry, analysing the most recent trends and risk scenarios and introducing the latest insurance solutions.
