The RiskXchange Insurance Industry 2021 report
With the recent acceleration of remote and digital working practices in the insurance industry, along with an associated increase in cyber crime activity, managing the risk of cyber threats and reducing the impact of breaches should be a top priority for UK insurance organisations of all sizes, from small businesses to FTSE 100 corporations.
Following on from our 2020 insurance industry report, Northdoor has again partnered with RiskXchange to conduct an in-depth benchmarking exercise to help organisations in the insurance industry understand their own cybersecurity risk. New to the 2021 report is a section covering the cyber risk posture of the Lloyd’s / London market shared services providers.
The resulting report from the RiskXchange software provides a transparent view of the UK insurance industry’s current readiness to defend data and systems from cybersecurity threats.
While the overall picture is reasonably positive – with surveyed companies averaging around 760 points out of a possible 900 – there are a number of fairly serious shortcomings that the industry needs to address. For example, 54% of brokers score a D on email security, 25% of coverholders score a C for encryption, 21% of carriers score an E when it comes to network services security and 19% of shared service providers score a D for application security.
To see how your industry peers are faring when it comes to cybersecurity – and to benchmark your own organisation’s performance against them – please read the attached Northdoor and RiskXchange Cyber Risk Assessment of the UK Insurance Industry. The report includes seven key recommendations for improving your scores and securing your business against cyber risk.
