To better understand the gap between cyber exposure and opting for a cyber insurance and risk management solution, we need an honest look at today’s troubling realities of cyberattacks on businesses of every size.
Nearly 90% of business respondents surveyed for The Hanover’s Cyber Risk Report reported experiencing a cyberattack during the past year and recognized a cyberattack could have a disastrous impact on their businesses. Business respondents also said that decisions to purchase cyber insurance were heavily influenced by media coverage and prior attack experience.
CrowdStrike found that intrusions threatening organizations' cybersecurity across the globe grew 400 percent in 2019 and 2020 combined. Nearly four out of five of those compromises in 2020 stemmed from cybercriminals. Overall, hacking efforts by both cybercriminals and state-sponsored groups grew in 2020 and are unlikely to let up in 2021.
At FifthWall Solutions, we surveyed agents to learn about the objections they hear from their clients and business owners. When asked why they are not accepting baseline cyber insurance policies, some of the answers have included:
2021 is only taking up where 2020 left off when it comes to cybercrimes. Cybercrime escalated due to the tremendous shift to remote work. Cybercriminals became more talented and developed more sophisticated methods.
The difference is a comprehensive cyber insurance solution. It all comes down to a solution: a low-cost, no underwriting application product; an expedited renewal process; and an unwavering commitment to excellence by our people.
