Brokers: The Key to Unlocking Cyber Insurance Potential?
In an era where businesses are increasingly digital, cyber threats loom larger than ever. Yet, the insurance industry seems to be lagging, with only 35% of businesses possessing cyber insurance. The global cyber insurance market, valued at $10.2 billion in 2022, is projected to grow to a staggering $28.2 billion by 2027. Despite this growth, a significant gap remains. This gap represents businesses left vulnerable to potentially catastrophic losses from cyber threats. The solution? Brokers.
Brokers stand as the gatekeepers of the insurance industry. They connect businesses with insurers, translating complex risk scenarios into comprehensible insurance options. However, with the evolving nature of cyber risk, brokers need to be equipped with the right tools and insights to guide their clients effectively.
