JLT RE: ‘Further industry progress must be made in modelling systemic cyber events such as the one currently underway’

18 May 2017

  • The Cyber insurance and reinsurance markets must act now to provide and enhance coverages which are flexible, targeted and sufficient to meet the challenge.
  • At present, stand-alone coverage can be particularly strategic for corporate clients, whilst extended reinsurance cover can benefit insurers in turn

"The ransomware attacks currently taking place have underlined the importance of securing strong and flexible Cyber risk cover." says David Flandro, Global head of Analytics JLT Re, “In our recently published Viewpoint report –‘Unlocking the Potential of the Cyber Market’, we outline how corporate, retail and insurance clients can benefit from current market offerings and conditions."

Recent events have highlighted that further industry progress must be made in modelling systemic Cyber events and Business interruption exclusions need to be addressed in particular.
David Flandro continues "The Cyber insurance and reinsurance markets must act now to provide and enhance coverages which are flexible, targeted and sufficient to meet the challenge. At present, stand-alone coverage can be particularly strategic for corporate clients, whilst extended reinsurance cover can benefit insurers in turn.

JLT possess one of the leading cyber modelling technology both for corporate and insurance clients. Our stochastically-driven Cyber insurance model can be calibrated to address and stress-test specific exposures, thereby enabling optimal risk transfer for clients.
"Our global Analytics teams and cyber risk insurance and reinsurance practices stand ready to assist retail, corporate and insurance clients as these risks evolve rapidly worldwide”, concludes David Flandro.
