Numerical Tools for Cyber Insurance
With the rise of digital economy, cyber risk has become a major concern for all customer segments. The cyber-insurance market is increasingly developing but with important uncertainties on the real value of the guarantees, due to the nature of the risk itself. The emerging and evolving nature of cyber risk, its potential systemic, with potential very large claims, make the evaluation of this risk challenging.
