With the rapid development of technology-based products and services in recent years, information technology seeps into the pore of people’s daily life by adding value-added services in products. Insurance has seen a rapid increase in technological advancements, which has led to an ever-growing risk of privacy, not just in this industry but across all the technology sector. Given this scenario, more data is collected, which increases the risk of data theft, and cyber risk and existing research shows that most organizations do not have enough resources to prevent data breaches, deal with notification responsibilities, and comply with privacy laws. Talesh, S. A. (2018) shows how insurance companies play a critical yet unrecognized role in assisting organizations in complying with privacy laws and dealing with cyber theft.
