The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Cyber Insurance Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026,” finds that the global cyber insurance market exhibited strong growth during 2015-2020. Cyber insurance is an insurance product designed to protect businesses against the potentially devastating effects of cybercrimes, including malware, ransomware, and distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks. It prevents the compromise of network and sensitive data such as social security numbers, credit card numbers, account numbers, drivers’ license numbers, and health records by covering the liabilities of the business. Cyber-attacks harm businesses by disrupting businesses, resulting in regulatory fines, legal penalties and attorney fees, loss of intellectual property, and reputational damage. As a result, cyber insurance has widely been adopted by organizations to offer coverage for physical damage to hardware and business income loss. It also effectively reduces the damage caused by a breach and complements the overall cyber risk management plan.
We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
Global Cyber Insurance Market Trends:
The market is primarily driven by the rising importance of cyber security across the globe. Besides this, the rising awareness about business interruption (BI) cyber risks, coupled with the growing number of mandatory legislation for data security among different end-users, such as banking and healthcare, are propelling the adoption of cyber insurance. Nowadays, government regulatory bodies and law enforcement agencies are taking numerous initiatives to tighten data security and protection. For instance, a US state assembly has introduced a bill to make cybersecurity insurance mandatory to regulate and protect the personal information of the citizens. Moreover, various data privacy laws, such as personally identifiable information (PII), European Union (EU) General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), and the United States health insurance portability and accountability act (HIPPA), are influencing the demand for cyber insurance across the globe. In addition to this, increasing digitization and the development of AI and blockchain technology are also opening new growth avenues for the market. Looking forward, the market is expected to grow at a CAGR of around 23% during the forecast period (2021-2026).
