Cyber Insurance: Rates Falling

Posted By Administration, Tuesday, April 5, 2016

Marsh released a report last week that shows cyber insurance rate falling. In 2015 after the Target, Home Depot, Anthem and other breaches rates leaped 28%. Since then major breaches have fallen off and in the first three months of 2016, rates have plummeted 13%.


So high risk firms like healthcare companies and retailers have seen rates fall from $21,642 for $1 million in coverage to $18,756. Robert Parisi — a cyber insurance executive for Marsh — said, Pricing has stabilized. There is only so far things can go before people choke and say ‘I’ve had enough.”


Lockton’s Ben Beeson agrees. His firm has also seen a leveling off of premiums. We haven’t had too many Targets or Home Depots recently,” he said.


Aon Risk Solution’s Kevin Kalinich said the drop is not likely to last long so now might be a good time to reintroduce the idea of cyber insurance to your clients.
