Robinson is panelist at ‘Cyber Risk Trends Seminar’

CAMBRIDGE — Steve Robinson, area president of Risk Placement Services, recently took part in a one-hour panel discussion highlighting third-quarter cyber risk trends. The Advisen webinar, attended by risk managers, insurance buyers and property/casualty professionals also featured representatives from Axis Capital, Aon and Advisen.

Noting there is much greater interest in purchasing cyber insurance among large businesses than mid-sized businesses, Mr. Robinson said: “We’re still in the phase where the take-up rate has been much lower on the small and middle market space for cyber in general, but we’re also seeing that the adopters that are buying are still more focused on breach response.”

Mr. Robinson continued: “I think we still have a great knowledge void in the marketplace, not only (on the part of) the buyer but also the seller in some cases, with respect to business interruption. This includes an understanding of what the triggers are for various industries under various types of policies, particularly among smaller businesses. it will be important for them to work with agents and brokers who really understand this coverage,” he stressed.
