The paper provides an overview of this product, describes current practices, offers examples, and identifies related regulatory and supervisory issues and challenges.

The IAIS Secretary General highlighted that given the growing alignment of objectives among insurance supervisors, industry and development agencies, there was a pervasive sense of opportunity to strengthen resilience in support of sustainable development. This has been flagged as one of priorities for the next five-year strategy. The newsletter also notes that IAIS released several papers for public consultation, including the application paper on supervision of insurer cybersecurity and the revised insurance core principle,or ICP, 6 (Changes in Control and Portfolio Transfers) and ICP 20 (Public Disclosure) papers.
