  • Ransomware and BI: From prevention to loss mitigation Recorded: Sep 30 2020 62 mins
    Insurance Insider
    Register free for our upcoming webinar in association with CrowdStrike.

    While ransomware is not a ‘new’ cyber threat, a steady increase in the severity and frequency of attacks is now starting to pose a persistant threat to the profitability of the cyber insurance market.

    Hackers are becoming more sophisticated and – if managed poorly – the disruption to the affected business can be drawn out and destructive, amplifying the cost to both the victim and insurers.

    With ransomware attacks such as Garmin and Blackbaud becoming both increasingly high profile and frequent, how can the insurance industry and cyber security vendors work together to mitigate the losses for both the client and insurers?

    Up for discussion:

    - How are ransomware attacks evolving and how prevalent is this threat now?
    - How significant is the BI element of a ransomware insurance claim and how is this trending?
    - How can the insurance industry work with cyber security vendors more closely to manage/minimise the BI element of the claim?
    - Does working with chosen cyber security vendors significantly amplify the cost of cyber insurance? Is the perceived expensiveness of cyber cover still a deterrent to prospective buyers?
    - How are the insurance industry and cyber security vendors working with insureds to encourage best practice and loss prevention with ransomware? Is enough attention given to the idea of prevention in insurer-client discussions?

    Is it the role of IT companies to demonstrate the longer term benefits of adoption and / or more operational changes?
    Why do you think the market has been slow to respond to data standards?

    Is the way forward collectively pursuing and enabling digitisation in a standardised manner?

    Disruptive changes and unprecedented challenges call for game-changing agility and innovation.

    - Where should innovation efforts be focused in the short-term to enable a smoother transition towards being future-ready?

    Insurance Insider
    As an industry, the (re)insurance community knows the power of good data and the influence it can have on the success of a business. But to what extent does this mindset extend to diversity and inclusion?

    The London insurance market is striving towards creating a more diverse and inclusive workforce, but how do we chart the progress of this work? Every HR team will collect data on the make-up of its employee base, but how granular should this data collection go, and what should we do with the data once we have it?

  • The London Market: Square Pegs, Round Holes and Broken IT Promises Recorded: May 19 2020 47 mins
    Insurance Insider
    The advent of Covid-19 has presented Lloyd’s and the London market with a myriad of different challenges. One of those is the ability of carriers and brokers to continue to provide a first class service to their clients and customers during this crisis while working remotely.

    A dispersed workforce has also sparked a wider debate about why some essential business processes still rely upon antiquated practices that require manual input. Even before Covid-19, the right application of technology to key business functions was separating winners and losers in the global re/insurance industry.

    Top performers have been making efficiency savings and replacing repetitive mundane tasks using automation and straight through processing techniques. Enabling their workforce to focus on more complex tasks.

    But how do we begin aligning business problems to the latest technological buzzwords and practices to ensure we deliver desirable outcomes that also accommodate the ‘new norm’ post Covid-19

    If I want to assess risk with more granularity and price more accurately, should I automatically be considering machine learning? In supporting my claims processes more efficiently should I be looking at voice technology and smart assistants?

    Furthermore, what emerging technology should I be considering? What are the limits of these technologies, how quickly can they be implemented and where should I be thinking about applying them? Is one of the problems the market faces the perception of IT itself?

    Hear from an expert panel on how to ensure you approach key business challenges with the RIGHT technology for the job.

    Speakers include:
    -Rachel Dalton, Senior Reporter, Insurance Insider (Chair)
    -James Livett, Associate Director, LIIBA
