Is Cyber Risk the Biggest Risk Facing Insurance in 2022?
What: A recent survey of over 2,500 business risk experts revealed that the risk they’re most concerned with is cyber risk, beating out the pandemic, business interruption, and natural catastrophes.
Why it matters: Cyber is an evolving threat — cyber criminals are hard at work finding new exploits, making it difficult to predict what they might come up with next. This results in a lot of uncertainty around cyber and it makes sense that risk experts are most concerned about it.
Cryptocurrency and NFTs
Almost $70 Million for an NFT? How do you Insure That?
What: The first non-fungible token (NFT) sold by world-famous Christie’s went for $69,346,250.00. With NFTs now looking like the next big thing in the fine art world, insurers need to figure out how to insure this new type of asset. The trouble is that the fluctuations inherent in the crypto market make converting the value to a stable currency difficult, and the other risks associated with NFTs do not naturally fit into existing insurance policies.
Why it matters: Insuring an NFT means there are at least two risks being insured for a single item: the underlying currency value and the digital asset. The insuring of digital assets is something insurance can do quite well, but finance might be better positioned to hedge against the devaluation of the underlying cryptocurrency.
