Cybersecurity is the fastest-evolving threat landscape insurers must deal with, according to a panel of experts assembled by AkinovA, the electronic platform for the transfer and trade of re/insurance risk.

The threat is evolving fast, but the insurance industry has so far struggled to keep up, leaving companies battling to manage their cyber risk. Attacks are increasingly likely to involve state actors as well as individual criminals, the panel noted, which is making cyber attacks more sophisticated and less predictable.
