The InterAmerican Bank’s 2016 report, Cyber security: Are we prepared in Latin America? claims 70% of Latin American countries have “some type of data protection within their constitutions”. Moreover, different countries have already enacted or are drafting data protection laws. In many ways, Latin America is inheriting some of the regulatory lessons learned from the rest of the world, and while it remains somewhat behind developed economies from an insurance products perspective, global players are very keen to develop and penetrate the market where demand for cyber insurance is high.

However, the immature regulatory framework encountered in Latin America by insurers creates new scenarios in which more nuanced judgments have to be made. While frameworks like EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) mandate an organization’s activity for notification and provide clear penalties for non-compliance, Latin American regulations have not really been tested to a high enough level.

All of this uncertainty tends to focus cyber incident response activity in Latin America on IT-led containment activity as a first-party loss to a greater degree than in other jurisdictions. While insurers covering cyber in developed countries will expect more cost for legal support, PR advice and crisis management to protect reputations, Latin American businesses are looking to lock down and recover their technology as a means to moving forward after an attack.

Join us as we discuss trends, experiences, and insights of Cyber incident management response in Latin America.
