Human Cyber Risk – The first line of defence

The term "human error" is too often used to imply that employees are to blame for cyber breaches. In reality, inadequate security cultures facilitate people-centred attacks.  

 

At this time of increased home working, staff are more vulnerable than ever to exploitation by malicious actors. In a new report, AIG explores the cyber 'human factor' and concludes it is time to take a new approach to addressing the human side of cyber risk, by identifying and addressing the underlying root-cause: human behaviour. 

 

Such an approach has never been more relevant, as organisations work with their staff to ensure business continuity and employee safety during a major global pandemic. Click here to read the paper.

 

Please contact your local cyber underwriter to discuss how AIG can help reduce cyber risk exposure, and complement with effective insurance.
