The updated Cyber Risk Toolkit from the American Academy of Actuaries is a good “first stop” for anyone seeking clear, topical explanations of cyber risk and cyber insurance issues, including a new section on “War, Cyberterrorism, and Cyber Insurance” as well as a new centralized guide highlighting useful cyber risk resources available from other organizations.
“Whether you’re curious about cyber risk because of what you’ve recently seen in the news, or you’re an insurance policyholder or a public policymaker seeking information about the types of cyber exposures or coverages, the toolkit is an excellent resource for finding what you want to know,” said Norman Niami, chairperson of the Academy’s Cyber Risk Task Force, which developed the toolkit.
The toolkit topics include:
- An Introduction to Cyber.
- Cyber Threat Landscape.
- Silent Cyber.
- Cyber Data.
- Cyber Risk Accumulation.
- Cyber Risk Reinsurance Issues.
- War, Cyberterrorism, and Cyber Insurance (newly added).
- Cyber Risk Resource Guide (newly added).
