COMMUNICATIONS, MEDIA AND TECHNOLOGY

Sophisticated tools, powerful analytics, and deep insights can help you better assess, understand, and manage risks, providing greater protection for your business.

In excess of 10,000 insurance placements for communications, media, and technology companies made annually within our global practice

For communications, media, and technology (CMT) companies, risk management can be challenging, simply because the stakes are so high. Multiple client business functions rely on the services you provide.

Success hinges on the ability to seize opportunities afforded by innovation in a rapidly-changing marketplace — while managing the risks. Data breaches and other cyber risks are growing. Media liability claims proliferate as new formats and distribution channels appear. Supply chain bottle-necks threaten the global flow of hardware, software, and raw materials. Convergence and collaboration — both between and within sectors — are reshaping the landscape.

Marsh can help you understand and manage these risks using some of the industry’s leading risk assessment tools, data, analytics, and technology. With these tools and one of the CMT sector’s most comprehensive claims databases, we quantify and prioritise exposures, helping to educate insurers, then customise coverage to align with your organisation’s risk profile. And, with one of the largest global CMT practices in the industry, we have the knowledge of the sector to provide acute insights that help you grow with confidence.
