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”.

Cyber threats, reputational risk top concerns: AIG survey

Cyber threats, reputational risk top concerns: AIG survey

Cyber threats and the reputational risks associated with a cyber attack are top concerns for risk managers and insurance professionals, according to a new survey sponsored by American International Group Inc.

More than 85% of the 258 risk managers, information technology decision-makers and senior executives surveyed said they were very or somewhat worried about cyber threats more than any other risk, AIG said Wednesday in a statement announcing the survey results.

Other areas of risk included income loss, which 82% of respondents said they were somewhat concerned. Eighty percent indicated that property damage was somewhat of a concern and 76% said securities and investment risk, the New York-based insurer said in the statement.

Additional survey results, which include responses from 65 insurance brokers, found that 69% of respondents said reputational risk from a cyber attack outweighs the financial risk, AIG said.

“These new survey findings confirm that business leaders view cyber risk as a top business concern, with great potential for reputational and financial loss,” John Gambale, head of professional liability and Lexington Financial Lines at AIG, said in the statement.

The AIG-sponsored survey conducted by Washington-based Penn Schoen Berland L.L.C. included responses from 323 risk managers, information technology decision-makers, C-suite executives and brokers from companies with revenues between $1 billion and $10 billion and middle-market businesses with revenues between $10 million and $1 billion.
