Editorial Panel


Cyber insurance is no longer a niche product – as if a series of high-profile attacks didn’t shine a bright enough spotlight on the product, then a global pandemic which thrust the world into a remote working environment most certainly did. Now, cyber insurance has become so mainstream that some have suggested that traditional P&C insurance will soon be renamed P&C&C insurance, in line with the product’s surge in interest.

For brokers, however, the cyber landscape remains challenging – how do you sell a product that is constantly changing, and how do you help clients mitigate risks when the threat landscape can alter during every minute of the day?

To answer all these questions and more, Insurance Business has put together a Cyber Power Panel that will meet quarterly to discuss all the latest issues and address the concerns of brokers operating in the cyber insurance market.
