The risk management sector does not currently have the solution to address catastrophic threats facing Australian businesses, Aon says.

The risk management firm expressed fears the industry is quickly losing relevance, particularly when it comes to threats like cyber attacks.

Aon said there's a significant onus on the risk industry to adapt to stay ahead of business risks or lose its key clients.

"Our industry is very sophisticated in handling smaller risks, such as health, vehicle and even safety. However...the truth is that the risk industry has struggled to develop strategies relevant to clients' needs in the catastrophic risk space," Aon Risk Solutions Australia CEO Lambros Lambrou said.

"The risk industry must stay ahead of clients and develop risk mitigation and financing strategies if they are to continue offering value and relevance," Lambrou said.
