The major risks facing business in 2018

Business Interruption, cyber attacks, and natural catastrophes are, not surprisingly to us in the industry, the leading business risks this year, according to more than 1,900 risk experts from 80 countries polled for the latest Allianz Risk Barometer.

The survey by Allianz Global Corporate and Specialty reveals that cyber attacks and business interruption remain the leading two risks in Australia. What remains disappointing is that both cyber and business interruption coverage is often not taken out by many small to medium enterprises, commonly at their peril.

I continue to urge all business owners and managers to discuss these and other risks with their insurance broker.

Changes to legislation/regulation and natural catastrophes are also high on the list.

To read the excellent full report please visit: http://www.agcs.allianz.com/insights/white-papers-and-case-studies/allianz-risk-barometer-2018/ 

I conclude with their very insightful infographic.
