Munich Re Global Cyber Risk and Insurance Survey 2022
More action required for higher cyber resilience
Munich Re has been involved in managing cyber risk from the first moment it became a consideration. The results of our Global Cyber Risk and Insurance Survey 2022 underline that there is clearly more action required – for policyholders and the insurance industry.

Cyber risk and cyber insurance - A gap between awareness and preparedness
Cyber Risk and Insurance Survey 2022 – The results
All companies surveyed are focusing more strongly on new, smart technologies. In line with these developments, security vulnerabilities and cyber-attacks are also on the rise. Although awareness among surveyed managers has risen by nearly 10% since our global survey in 2021, the perception of the cyber threat landscape and what needs to be done to properly address it still varies greatly by region. As a result, cyber security protection measures remain relatively low. And decision makers are aware of this: 83% of surveyed representatives said that their own company is not adequately protected against digital threats.
Digital disruption is progressing on a global level and associated dependencies are advancing enormously – and they make no allowance for those who are not sufficiently prepared. The insurance industry has proven that it can provide real value-add for its clients with comprehensive solutions that adapt to the rapidly changing risk landscape. Munich Re, in particular, constantly innovates as a leading cyber reinsurer. We offer long-standing expertise and sophisticated insurance solutions.
