Cybersecurity in Insurance Market Overview

The global cybersecurity revenue in the insurance sector was $6.4 billion in 2020. The market is expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 10% from 2020 to 2025. The sector’s rapid digital transformation will drive this growth.

COVID-19 led to more customers accessing their accounts digitally and insurers selling through digital channels, increasing the sector’s cyber risk. The rise in complex ransomware attacks, the persistence of hybrid working models, ongoing supply chain threats, and the Russia-Ukraine war have all accelerated the need for robust cybersecurity defenses across sectors.

What is the impact of cybersecurity on the insurance market?

Today’s insurance customers, many of whom are members of Generation Z, are accustomed to accessing their insurers via digital channels. This increases the surface area for cyberattacks, similar to the digitalization necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic. The increased risk of a cyberattack, and payout for a cyber insurance policyholder, discourage insurers from offering cyber policies. Moreover, the economic damage of the pandemic and the ongoing cost of living crisis have further reduced businesses’ and consumers’ abilities to afford ever-costlier cyber insurance cover.

The COVID-19 pandemic has hastened the digital transformation of businesses, necessitating more employees to work remotely and more transactions to be conducted online. With more customers accessing their accounts digitally and insurers selling through digital channels more than before, the cyber risk faced by insurers is increasing. This is particularly relevant to traditional insurers, which tend to have less digital experience and expertise than insurtechs.

Digital challengers to the insurance industry were initially notably present in personal lines, with other areas of insurance remaining unaffected. This has now changed, and most insurance products have been impacted by emerging challengers that have accelerated digital transformation in the sector. This rapid digital transformation, however, risks holes being left in application development. As well as protecting their reputations and avoiding hefty fines, insurers should invest in cybersecurity solutions to prevent data breaches.

What are the key cybersecurity value chains?

The key cybersecurity value chains can be divided into three segments: hardware, software, and services.

Hardware

With chips now being used in mission-critical servers and safety-critical applications, protecting chips from cyberattacks is becoming more critical and more expensive. Systems vendors such as Apple and Amazon are increasingly designing their chips rather than buying commercially developed devices and intellectual property (IP) created by third-party developers.

Software

The software element of the cybersecurity value chain comprises the following areas: identity management, network security, endpoint security, threat detection & response, cloud security, data security, email security, application security, unified threat management, and vulnerability management.

Services

The services element of the cybersecurity value chain comprises the following areas: managed security services, post-breach response services, and risk & compliance services. Services are typically outsourced because of the complexity of addressing cybersecurity-related issues, such as staying on top of vulnerabilities, identifying & responding to threats, and meeting compliance requirements.

Which are the leading insurance companies that are deploying cybersecurity?

The leading insurance companies that are deploying cybersecurity are AIG, Allianz, Aon, Chubb, Hiscox, Marsh, Munich Re, Ping An, Swiss Re, and Zurich Insurance.

Which are the specialist cybersecurity vendors in the insurance market?

The specialist cybersecurity vendors in the insurance market are Blackberry, CyberCube, FireEye, Portnox, and SecurityScorecard.

Business Intelligence & Marketing Manager, SAL Heavy Lift

“COVID-19 has caused significant interference to our business and the COVID-19 intelligence from GlobalData has helped us reach better decisions around strategy. These two highlights have helped enormously to understand the projections into the future concerning our business units, we also utilise the project database to source new projects for Liebherr-Werk to use as an additional source to pitch for new business.”

Market Analyst & Management, Liebherr-Werk

Your daily news has saved me a lot of time and keeps me up-to-date with what is happening in the market, I like that you almost always have a link to the source origin. We also use your market data in our Strategic Business Process to support our business decisions. By having everything in one place on the Intelligence Center it has saved me a lot of time versus looking on different sources, the alert function also helps with this.

Head of Key Accounts, Saab AB

Having used several other market research companies, I find that GlobalData manages to provide that ‘difficult-to-get’ market data that others can’t, as well as very diverse and complete consumer surveys.

Marketing Intelligence Manager, Portugal Foods

Our experience with GlobalData has been very good, from the platform itself to the people. I find that the analysts and the account team have a high level of customer focus and responsiveness and therefore I can always rely on. The platform is more holistic than other providers. It is convenient and almost like a one stop shop. The pricing suite is highly competitive and value for our organisation.

I like reports that inform new segments such as the analysis on generation Z, millennials, the impact of COVID 19 to our banking customers and their new channel habits. Secondly the specialist insight on affluent sector significantly increases our understanding about this group of customers. The combination of those give us depth and breadth of the evolving market.

I’m in the business of answering and helping people make decisions so with the intelligence center I can do that, effectively and efficiently. I can share quickly key insights that answer and satisfy our country stakeholders by giving them many quality studies and primary research about competitive landscape beyond the outlook of our bank. It helps me be seen as an advisory partner and that makes a big difference. A big benefit of our subscription is that no one holds the whole data and because it allows so many people, so many different parts of our organisation have access, it enables all teams to have the same level of knowledge and decision support.

Head of Customer Insight and Research, Standard Chartered

“I know that I can always rely on Globaldata’s work when I’m searching for the right consumer and market insights. I use Globaldata insights to understand the changing market & consumer landscape and help create better taste & wellbeing solutions for our customers in food, beverage and healthcare industries.

Globaldata has the right data and the reports are of very high quality compared to your competitors. Globaldata not only has overall market sizes & consumer insights on food & beverages but also provides insights at the ingredient & flavour level. That is key for B2B companies like Givaudan. This way we understand our customers’ business and also gain insight to our unique industry”

Head of Consumer Sensory Insights, Givaudan

GlobalData provides a great range of information and reports on various sectors that is highly relevant, timely, easy to access and utilise.  The reports and data dashboards help engagement with clients; they provide valuable industry and market insights that can enrich client conversations and can help in the shaping of value propositions. Moreover, using GlobalData products has helped increase my knowledge of the finance sector, the players within it, and the general threats and opportunities.

I find the consumer surveys that are carried out to be extremely beneficial and not something I have seen anywhere else. They provided an insightful view of why and which consumers take (or don’t) particular financial products. This can help shape conversations with clients to ensure they make the right strategic decisions for their business.

One of the challenges I have found is that data in the payments space is often piecemeal. With GD all of the data I need is in one place, but it also comes with additional market reports that provide useful extra context and information. Having the ability to set-up alerts on relevant movements in the industry, be it competitors or customers, and have them emailed directly to me, ensures I get early sight of industry activity and don’t have to search for news.
