May 3, 2016


Comments are due by May 13, 2016 on the International Association of Insurance Supervisors (“IAIS) Issues Paper on Cyber Risk to the Insurance Sector, the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (“NAIC”) International Insurance Relations Committee (“Committee”) reminded regulators and interested parties today, May 3.

The Committee will meet on May 9 at 3 p.m. (ET) to discuss any draft NAIC comments on the Paper.  So far, none have been received.  

The Paper’s objectives are to raise awareness for insurers and supervisors of the challenges presented by cyber risk, including current and contemplated supervisory approaches for addressing this risk.  The IAIS emphasized that, as an Issues Paper, it represents IAIS supporting material and does not set requirements, but rather builds upon a 2015 survey of IAIS Members on their approaches to cyber risk.  It also provides background on current practices, identifies examples, and explores related regulatory and supervisory issues.
