Cyber Risk Modelling

Accessing and quantifying affirmative & non affirmative cyber risks and the accumulation of exposures

The Challenge

One of the world’s most valuable resources according to the Economist is now data. It is this data stored on millions of servers that becomes a target for cyber criminals.

In 2017, the NotPetya and WannaCry ransomware attacks shook the world and caused a total of $14 billion in economic damage. By November of 2018, the insurance and reinsurance industry loss caused by just NotPetya had surpassed $3 billion, and insured losses were predicted to grow by over 30% as the tail developed.

Accessing and quantifying affirmative cyber risks and the accumulation of exposures is a significant challenge for insurers and reinsurers.

There is also the challenge of non-affirmative cyber risk sometimes called silent cyber risk. Silent cyber refers to potential cyber-related losses stemming from traditional property and liability policies that were not specifically designed to cover cyber risk.

Unlike the specialist standalone cyber insurance products that are available in the market today, traditional liability policies were not designed with cyber exposures in mind and therefore may not implicitly include or exclude cyber risks.

This coverage ambiguity can result in a silent cyber scenario, whereby an insurer may have to pay claims for cyber losses off a policy not designed for that purpose.

The Solution

The Kovrr’s cyber risk modelling platform delivers global (re)insurers transparent, data driven insights into their affirmative and non-affirmative cyber risk exposures.

The Kovrr platform is designed to help underwriters, exposure managers and catastrophe modelers understand, financially quantify and manage cyber risk by utilizing AI-powered risk models
