Allianz Risk Barometer: Cyber incidents dominate risk landscape for companies of all sizes and sectors in 2018

 

Cyber incidents will be the top risk for Australian businesses this year with companies increasingly concerned about changing regulation and high profile attacks, according to the Allianz Risk Barometer 2018.

This is one of the key findings of the seventh Allianz Risk Barometer, which is published annually by Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty (AGCS).The 2018 report is based on the insight of a record 1,911 risk experts from 80 countries.

 In Australia, Cyber incidents tops the risk list for the first time with 49% of responses, up from third (31% of responses) in 2017. The risk usurped Business interruption, which dropped to second place this year with 46% of responses.
