Today insurers, policyholders, intermediaries and regulators interact in an increasingly online world with profound implications for what has up to now been a traditionally operating industry.
While the growing threats to consumer and business data from cyber attacks constitute major sources of risk for insurers, at the same time cyber insurance has become the fastest growing commercial insurance product in many jurisdictions.
Scholars and practitioners from Europe, the United States and Asia review these topics from the viewpoints of insurers, policyholders and insurance intermediaries. In some cases, existing insurance regulations appear readily adaptable to the online world, such as prohibitions on deceptive marketing of insurance products and unfair commercial practices, which can be applied to advertising through social media, such as Facebook and Twitter, as well as to traditional written material.
In other areas, current regulatory and business practices are proving to be inadequate to the task and new ones are emerging. The online insurance market is cross-territorial and cross-jurisdictional with insurers often operating internationally and as part of larger financial-services holding companies.Papers selected for this volume will explore the social implications and challenges of e-business and e-commerce in terms of social inclusion and exclusion and the digital divide; the social shaping of e-business technologies; the changing nature and patterns of work and social activities; and online identity, security, risks, trust and privacy.
