The Cyber Security Insurance Market was valued at USD 9.29 billion in 2021, and it is expected to reach USD 28.25 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 19.47% during 2022-2027. Increasing digitalization, and rapid development in the areas of cloud, Big Data, IoT, and Artificial Intelligence (AI), in ever more areas of business and society, and the growing connectivity of everything has increased the workload of already strained IT teams.

Key Highlights
IT advances, communications technologies, and the smart energy grid are changing the landscape of all every country’s critical infrastructure and business networks. However, with rapidly evolving technology comes rapidly advancing threats.
Personal data is valuable, which prompts the cybercriminals for a crime, where personal information will be sold on the dark web, like a credit card number, identity, medical records, etc. It is among the few factors which have led to an increased demand for cybersecurity.
Cloud computing is one of the most rapidly growing recent technologies, eliminating the traditional boundaries of IT, creating new markets, spurring the mobility trend, enabling advances in unified communications. Various tech stakeholders and organizations are turning to new insurance models to mitigate the risks of storing sensitive data in the modern cybersecurity landscape.
As the cybersecurity insurance space continues to mature, insurers will consider a broader range of security controls and technologies in their assessments. Hence, the sensitivity level of an organization’s data, and its ability to adequately obscure it, will play a key role in determining overall risk, which is driving an increase in the adoption of new technologies like Microsharding. Microsharding technology breaks data into fragments that can be as small as single-digit bytes before polluting and distributing shards to multiple locations to reduce the attack surface and eliminate data sensitivity.
Cyber insurance policies and businesses cover a wide range of risks, and insurers don’t always agree on which loss events are covered. Cyber events have characteristics that make it difficult to write comprehensive policies, such as limited loss history, the unreliability of past data when predicting future events, and the possibility of a large-scale attack with highly correlated losses across companies and industries. Furthermore, insurers are still working on precise and accurate criteria for cyberattacks and the impact of new technologies like the Internet of Things. Cyber insurance coverage could be ineffective and expose firms to considerable damage if big cyberattacks occur without well-defined dangers and an understanding of how they affect insurers.
The pandemic accelerated the adoption of digital tools, which have driven a greater need for cybersecurity insurance coverage. Various companies have been looking forward to combining insurance with cybersecurity tools to help businesses mitigate and manage cyber risk. For instance, in 2020, Coalition, a Cyber insurance company, acquired BinaryEdge, a platform akin to BitSight and Security Scorecard that searches the internet and maps an organization’s attack surface. Coalition has merged terabytes of data from BinaryEdge with claims and other cybersecurity data sources to enable its risk evaluation process with machine learning and natural language processing.
Further, due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the countries across the world have implemented precautionary measures. With schools being closed, and communities asked to stay at home, multiple organizations found a way to enable their employees to work from their homes. This, thus, resulted in a rise in the adoption of video communication platforms. ?In the past 6-8 months, the new domain registration on these video communication platforms, including Zoom, rapidly increased.

Key Market Trends

BFSI Segment is Estimated to Hold a Significant Revenue Share of the Market Studied

The BFSI industry is one of the critical infrastructure segments facing multiple data breaches and cyber-attacks, owing to the massive client base that the sector serves and the financial information at stake. Cybercriminals are optimizing a myriad of diabolical cyberattacks to immobilize the financial industry since it is a highly lucrative operating model with amazing profits and the bonus of relatively little risk and detectability. Trojans, ATMs, ransomware, mobile banking, data breaches, institutional invasion, data thefts, fiscal breaches, and other threats are all part of the threat environment for these attacks.
Cybersecurity Insurance is increasingly becoming a vital part of banking and financial institutions. The industry is expected to command a significant share of the global market during the forecast period. It is one of the highly regulated, governed industries, and it is also prone to identity frauds that augment the demand.
For Instance, in October 2021, The Federal Trade Commission has issued an amended rule that increases the data security precautions that financial institutions must implement to secure their clients’ financial data. In recent years, consumers have suffered enormous suffering due to massive data breaches and cyberattacks, including monetary loss, identity theft, and other forms of financial misery. The revised Safeguards Rule from the Federal Trade Commission requires non-banking financial firms, such as mortgage brokers, car dealers, and payday lenders, to establish, implement, and maintain a robust security system to protect their clients’ information. Government policies will significantly drive the market.
With the increase of security breaches, banks and financial institutes should adopt cybersecurity insurance to safeguard their customers’ data and prevent economic losses. For Instance, in December 2021, a huge security breach at Bitmart, a crypto trading platform, resulted in hackers removing about USD 200 million in assets. A stolen private key was the major source of the security compromise, which affected two of its Ethereum and Binance smart chain hot wallets.
Furthermore, in October 2021, SharkBot is a new Android banking Trojan uncovered by Cleafy and Threat Fabric researchers. The virus entices victims to download malicious apps from the Google Play Store. It then gains administrative privileges, records keystrokes, intercepts/hide F2A SMS communications, and accesses mobile banking and cryptocurrency apps to transfer funds. SharkBot has targeted five different cryptocurrency providers and international banks from the United Kingdom and Italy.

United States to Hold the Major Share in the North American Region

The United States is considered the most prominent market for cybersecurity insurance across the globe. The country is also home to a significant number of key players operating in the market, which is another reason for the country’s high share.
In 2021, there were more data compromises reported in the country than in any year since the first notification law for state data breaches became effective in 2003.
The region has been witnessing a significant number of data breaches over the years. According to the report published in 2022 by Identity Theft Resource Center, 1,789 data breach incidents have been recorded. The high number of data breaches encourages organizations across various industries to opt for cyber security insurance, driving the market’s growth.
Moreover, cyberattacks in the country are rising rapidly and have reached an all-time high, essentially due to the drastically increasing number of connected devices across the region. The consumers in the region are using public clouds, and many of their mobile applications are already loaded with their personal information for the convenience of shopping, banking, and communication, among others. Further, according to the White House Council of Economic Advisers, the United States economy loses approximately USD 57 - USD 109 billion each year to harmful cyber activity.
T-Mobile, a mobile telecommunications company in the United States, has acknowledged six data breaches since 2018, including two in the last six months of 2021. In August 2021, the company announced that its systems were attacked through an unprotected network access device in July. By August, the attacker gained direct access to the servers containing account and personal information on former, current, and prospective account holders. Moreover, the company confirmed an additional compromise in late December 2021 that impacted an undisclosed number of customers.

Competitive Landscape

Cybersecurity insurance is moderately consolidated, with major players offering superior technology and fostering their growth through their existing distribution channels. These technology leaders are investing in innovation, mergers, acquisitions, and partnership activities to maintain a competitive edge in the market.

August 2021 - With instances of ransomware attacks increasing, AON and Crawford pooled their combined cyber experience and produced a detailed guide to help organizations better mitigate cyber risk and manage insurance claims more effectively in an incident. The guide examines how advances in cyber-attacks, particularly in ransomware, resulting in rapid inflation in loss frequency and severity while simultaneously increasing the complexity of managing the impact of business interruption.
May 2021 - Japan’s Mitsui insurance invested USD 36 million and made a strategic partnership in Israel’s Upstream Security as part of the startup’s C funding round. The partnership would enable the Japanese insurer to employ Upstream’s machine learning and analytics capabilities to derive insurance insights from mobility data. MSI and Upstream will work together to put the power and advantages of automobile telematics data in the hands of Japanese insurers and policyholders.
