BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

EMEA organizations largely uninsured for cyber risks: Aon survey

Reprints

European, Middle Eastern and African firms are uninsured for cyber losses, according to a survey issued Monday by Aon Risk Solutions.

The survey of more than 500 individuals, which was conducted by Traverse City, Michigan-based Ponemon Institute L.L.C., found only 15% of the probable maximum loss potential for information assets is covered by insurance. Survey respondents included finance, treasury, accounting and risk management officials, among others.

By comparison, 60% of total property, plant and equipment asset values are protected by insurance, according to the survey report.

Among other survey results, 7% of cyber insureds have limits of more than $21 million. A total of 38% of organizations have experienced a cyber loss in the past 24 months, averaging $3.3 million, according to the survey.

Thirty percent of businesses said they are “fully aware” of the economic and legal consequences of an international data beach or security exploit.
