4) Q: What are the compliance regulations affecting insurance customers in 2024?

The insurance industry is facing a shifting regulatory landscape in 2024, with new compliance regulations coming into effect. These regulations have a significant impact on insurance customers and organisations in the sector.

The Network and Information Security Directive (NIS2), which strengthens cyber security requirements, applies to organisations subject to the original NIS Directive. The NIS2 directive emphasises the importance of board-level governance of cyber risk and the implementation of cyber security standards throughout the supply chain. Even organisations based in the UK, which may have previously been exempt from certain rules, will now need to comply with these new regulations.

The Digital Operational Resilience Act (DORA) also focuses on boosting business resilience to technology-related risks. Starting in January 2025, DORA will focus on enhancing business resilience to technology-related risks, including cyber threats. It applies to various financial sector entities, such as banks, insurance companies, investment firms, and crypto-asset service providers. Compliance with DORA will be crucial for insurance organisations and their third-party ICT service providers.

5) Q: Why is sanctions screening important for my business?

Sanctions screening is crucial for businesses to avoid engaging with individuals or entities subject to sanctions. Failing to do so can result in severe legal, financial, and reputational consequences.
