The cyber challenge
It is all too easy to think of data breach as a single risk facing an organisation. The reality is that it constitutes a whole range of risks and the prevalence of each change over time.
Beazley pioneered the development of data breach related insurance and, as a market leader in the field, we have helped clients handle over 7,000 data breaches since 2009. As illustrated in the following two snapshots, our experience provides a valuable insight into the challenges faced by organisations and their officers in preparing for, and dealing with, the changing nature of incidents:
- Ransomware attacks were over four times more numerous in 2016 than in 2015.
- Unintended disclosure, most often emails or faxes sent to the wrong recipient, represented 32% of breaches in 2016, up from 24% in 2015.
