The UK cyber insurance market is growing over time. Product penetration is increasing as businesses are becoming more aware of the need for cyber insurance in a world where they are dependent on the digital space and crime is moving online. All businesses are vulnerable and require cyber insurance, regardless of size or industry. While there is a large opportunity for insurance providers to increase product penetration and grow their commercial books, they must be cautious due to the unknown exposure and scale of cyber risk.
