Can AIG Solve The Growing Need for Cyber Insurance in Singapore ?

AIG Cyber InsuranceIn recent months, there has been an increasing number of enquiries on Cyber Insurance as we came across reports of the hacking of various websites (Singapore Hospitals, Singapore Government related, commercial entities’ websites, local schools, accounts of a Singapore entertainer, etc) and these reports illustrate that cyber-attack can happen to any type of entity (Governmental/ Commercial/ Financial Institution).

In December 2013, there was a serious theft of data of private banking clients of a foreign bank in Singapore who had outsourced their printing function to a service provider whose server was hacked.

In 2 July 2014, Personal Data Protection Act 2012 (PDPA) was implemented and a fine of up to S$1 million will be imposed on companies that fail to comply with the Act. AIG has handled many Cyber claims on a global scale and they see the risk exposures companies face in light of the reliance on web domains and it is vital that companies review their risk management framework and protect themselves with AIG CyberEdge with the following key considerations:
