The next RISCS Community Meeting will be held on Wednesday 10th and Thursday 11th April 2019

At the last RISCS Community Meeting, we discussed ‘Economics and Incentives’ in cyber security. To follow on from that event we would like to explore two interlocking themes: ‘Cyber liability’ and ‘Cyber insurance’. Our aim is to combine the outputs of these two events to explore the research questions that remain unanswered.

Cyber insurance is not new, and we have arguably not yet seen the kind of behaviour change that other types of insurance have initiated. Understanding why that is, how the insurance sector could optimally evolve and what it needs to do to become a change agent in cyber security, is at the heart of this meeting’s agenda. Chains of legal and financial liability are subject to increasing attention and discussion. Chains of risk ownership remain even less clear for cyber and are often hampered by a gulf of understanding between technical experts and business leaders. What is the current state of play and does cyber insurance offer an opportunity to align complex layers of nested liability with financial and legal chains of accountability?
