  • 11th Allianz survey: Cyber, business interruption and natural disasters are the top three business risks globally in 2022. Cyber ranks top Asia Pacific risk for the third consecutive year
  • Pandemic outbreak drops from second to fourth position as majority of companies are less concerned and feel adequately prepared for future outbreaks
  • Natural catastrophes and Climate change rise significantly in the annual rankings as extreme weather events and transition risks mount
  • AGCS CEO Joachim Mueller: “‘Business interrupted’ will likely remain the key underlying risk theme for this year. Building resilience is becoming a competitive advantage for companies.”


JOHANNESBURG/LONDON/MUNICH/NEW YORK/PARIS/SAO PAULO/SINGAPORE – Media OutReach – 18 January 2022 – Cyber perils are the biggest concern for companies globally in 2022, according to the Allianz Risk Barometer.
