New Approaches to Improving Cyber Profitability

27/06/2023 | Online Zoom Conferencing

Cyber insurance represents one of the most significant growth opportunities for the insurance industry including MGA’s.  At the same time, increasingly aggressive and sophisticated actors have challenged the expectations of the profitability and sustainability of this line.  While effective underwriting guidelines, rating plans and risk control activities can make the business more profitable, the constant evolution of adversaries and techniques underlines the importance of timely historical loss data supporting current views of what is going on.

Learning Objectives

At the end of this session, delegates will be able to:

  • Describe the components of the MITRE ATT&CK Framework
  • Explain how the Framework can be used to create underwriting guidelines and risk control programs
  • Outline how to employ historic loss data with the Framework to maintain and evolve those guidelines and programs
