OPPORTUNITIES OF, AND CHALLENGES IN USING, CYBER INSURANCE TO INCENTIVISE CYBER SECURITY PRACTICES

A paper from RUSI on 7 December outlines the opportunities of and challenges in using cyber insurance to incentivise cyber security practices.  Its findings are based on a review of existing industry reports and academic research.  It says that The uptake of cyber insurance, particularly by SME, remains low.  It identifies several policy questions raised by the existing literature.  These questions serve to guide the next stage of the project and to prompt new conversations about how cyber insurance might better incentivise cyber security practices.
