    IAIS Publishes Application Paper on Supervising Insurer Cybersecurity

    June 29, 2018

    IAIS published a draft application paper on the supervision of insurer cybersecurity. The application paper provides further guidance to supervisors seeking to develop or enhance their approach to supervising the cyber risk, cybersecurity, and cyber resilience of insurers. Insurers are also invited to consider the application paper, to assist in developing and implementing good cybersecurity practices in their organizations. Comments on the proposal are due by August 13, 2018.

    The application paper is generally principles-based and builds on frameworks and guidance from multiple sources, including the "G7 Fundamental Elements of Cyber Security for the Financial Sector"; the related "G7 Fundamental Elements for Effective Assessment of Cybersecurity for the Financial Sector"; and the CPMI-IOSCO guidance on cyber resilience for financial market infrastructures. The paper focuses on supervision of insurers’ cybersecurity. It does not cover cyber insurance products nor the use of cyber insurance in the reduction of residual risks. IAIS also published consultations on the revised ICPs 6 and 20 and it will hold a public background session on July 16, 2018 to discuss these revised ICPs. 

    Under IAIS procedures an application paper can provide additional material related to one or more Insurance Core Principles (ICPs) that help with practical application of ICPs, but an application paper is not binding and does not establish standards. Application papers can provide examples of good practices, in addition to advice and recommendations on how ICPs may be implemented.
