Faced with increased demand, major European and U.S. insurers have been able to charge higher premium rates to cover ransoms, the repair of hacked networks, business interruption losses, and even PR fees to mend reputational damage. But the rise in ransomware attacks and growing sophistication of attackers have made insurers wary, with fears that some attackers could be checking if potential victims have policies, that would make them more likely to pay out.
As losses mount, insurers are changing their limits, coverage and pricing of cyber insurance, with some Insurance companies turning their back on cyber insurance altogether due to heavy losses.
A new European Union report claims that the COVID-19 pandemic and rise of home working has helped cyber-criminals to flourish. As Europe’s most profitable crime, ransomware demands $300 million in ransom per year according to the US State Department. While in Australia during the 2020–21 financial year, the Australian Cyber Security Center reported receiving over 67,500 cybercrime reports. An increase of nearly 13 per cent from the previous financial year and the equivalent of one report of a cyber-attack every 8 minutes.
Cyber-attacks are being seen across all industries. No sector of the Australian economy was immune from the impacts of cybercrime and other malicious cyber activity. Losses incurred by firms hit by ransomware up to now have been manageable, but the recent deployment of “catastrophic” malware is changing that dynamic.
In August last year more than 200 U.S. hospitals and clinics were paralyzed by an attack on their systems by a hacker exploiting software that let him spread crippling ransomware, demanding ransom to recover the lost data before acceding.
Insurers are becoming less willing to provide large amounts of cover. However, they argue that failing to pay ransoms will backfire, crippling businesses whose systems have been disabled.

The importance and necessity of an IT security audit cannot be understated. As more and more businesses use online facilities and platforms to conduct their operations, more and more of the business itself is at risk. CRT Network Solutions’ IT security audit assesses your business’ overall IT infrastructure and environment for physical and software threats that can compromise your business’ IT security.
We recommend a quarterly IT security audit to our clients for the following reasons:
It identifies problem and risk areas
Your IT infrastructure comprises a vast network of hardware, software and users and it can be difficult for you to manage these systems in-house. Expert outsourced IT services can identify areas that may pose a problem or put your business at risk. In an on-site IT security audit, CRT will check network vulnerability, operating systems, remote access and permissions, spam filters, antivirus programmes and firewalls.
It establishes whether your existing security facilities are adequate
The level of IT security your business has should match the technologies that your business uses. An IT security audit can help identify whether the existing security facilities you have in place are sufficient to protect your business from outside cyber threats.
It provides an in-depth analysis of your IT systems
Our IT security audit report contains a detailed breakdown of our findings while analysing your IT systems. It will highlight problem areas and provide solutions to those problems, clarify whether your system is in compliance with industry standards, and check your security policies and programmes.
It reduces the risk of IT-related theft or damage
The primary goal of an IT security audit is to protect your data and IT systems. An IT security audit can thus easily identify a possible threat or problem before one has been established, ensuring your business’ integrity, confidentiality and security.
