UK financial services body the Prudential Regulation Authority (PRA) has issued a warning to insurers regarding the risk of claims for damages arising from cyber-attacks on their customers.

The PRA recommendations include the carrying out of stress testing of their capability to respond to a large number of claims at once – no doubt inspired by the recent WannaCry and notPetya attacks.
