What Does InsuraShield's Solution Mean for Insurance Agents?

InsuraShield's solution reflects the rising demand for cyber insurance solutions among organizations across all industries, including the insurance sector. Meanwhile, as global organizations search for ways to guard against cyberattacks, the demand for cyber insurance likely will continue to increase.

The global cyber insurance market is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 28 percent between 2016 and 2022 and could be worth approximately $14 billion by 2022, industry analyst Allied Market Research said. Furthermore, new data security mandates and the need to cover the costs associated with data breaches, business interruptions and other cybersecurity issues are among the factors that could accelerate this sector's growth.
