New technologies will demand greater cyber protection from insurers
Leader in technology solutions for the insurance market reinforces the importance of insurers adopting risk mitigation mechanisms
New technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, have contributed a lot to business. But, while it brings benefits, it is also capable of causing great harm. In this sense, according to a survey published in September by the security company Trend Micro, Brazil is already the second most vulnerable country to hacker attacks.
This increase in the number of attacks is affecting all sectors, with insurance being no exception. According to the Insurance Sector Outlook 2024 survey, released by consultancy Deloitte in December, cyber attacks against the insurance sector are growing exponentially as insurers migrate to digital channels.
Because of this, i4pro, a leading company in technology solutions for the insurance market, highlights that it is important for insurers to adopt security and threat mitigation mechanisms. “The sector works with diverse information, so insurers need to pay attention to how to protect this data. Technologies such as WAF, SIEM and anti-DDoS, associated with strong hardening, are mandatory”, explains Raphael Gregorio, technology director at i4pro. “Because it is very expensive, many insurance companies are choosing to transfer their applications and databases to the Cloud, which has several protection mechanisms, reducing risks”, he adds.
This paradigm shift also appears in research released by Deloitte, as it will require the adoption of advanced technology and modification of company culture to help minimize siled interactions, improve collaboration between employees and increase accessibility to employee data. customers.
