Is Accumulation Risk In Cyber Systematically Underestimated?

“The purpose of this article is to highlight the importance of taking a holistic approach to cyber. In particular, we argue that actuarial modelling should not be viewed stand-alone, but rather as an integral part of an interconnected value chain with other processes such as cyber-risk assessment and cyber-claims settlement.” Lire

Building Resilience in Cybersecurity — An Artificial Lab Approach

“Using the lab, in numerical case studies, we identify two classes of measures to control systemic cyber risks: security- and topology-based interventions. We discuss the implications of our findings on selected real-world cybersecurity measures currently applied in the insurance and regulation practice or under discussion for future cyber risk control. To this end, we provide […]

Insurance and Enterprise: Cyber Insurance for Ransomware

“As businesses improved their resilience, cybercriminals adapted and ransoms escalated, calling insurability into question. Yet there remains little appetite for imposing restrictive conditionality in this highly competitive market. Instead, insurers have turned to governments to contain criminal threats and cushion catastrophic losses.” Lire

Modeling and Pricing Cyber Insurance — A Survey

“We distinguish three main types of cyber risks: idiosyncratic, systematic, and systemic cyber risks. While for idiosyncratic and systematic cyber risks, classical actuarial and financial mathematics appear to be well-suited, systemic cyber risks require more sophisticated approaches that capture both network and strategic interactions.” Lire

Cyber Security and Insurance

“Companies and law firms must have adequate insurance coverage to fill gaps and to meet company insurance objectives.” Lire

Do Auditors Consider Cybersecurity Insurance in Pricing Audits?
