The maturity of a market for cyber-insurance is still uncertain, thus the incentives and barriers in this field have to be weighed carefully. Although cyber insurance is a very good choice of risk handover for the asset owner (insurers), there is a lack of solid and independent cyber security evidence on the strength and growth of this market.
For this reason, ENISA considers that information sharing and incident reporting are the foundations for the cyber insurance market to progress and improve.
