Our Positions | Cybersecurity

Cybersecurity is an issue of growing importance for insurers as well as society in general. Insurers encounter cybersecurity issues in a variety of ways. Like all members of the interconnected business community, insurers are potential targets as they hold consumer personal information. Because of this, insurers have an obligation to take steps to protect that information as well as to play a role in the development of how society responds to the growing exposure to cyber risk by insuring.

The amazing benefits of a technologically advanced and interconnected society have not been attained without the price of sobering exposure to substantial and even potentially catastrophic harm.
