The Perils of Structuring for New Perils and the Opportunities

Untangling Cyber Risk to Evaluate Exposures in Dollars and Probabilities

Unlike traditional ILS risks such as natural catastrophe, cyber risk involves an active adversary and an evolving threat landscape with nonobvious risk accumulations.
To understand the individual risks in a portfolio, models must account for the behavioral elements of intentional and accidental threat actors, measuring the relative strength of companies’ cyber defenses against the strength of the opposition they face.

To understand portfolio tail risk and evaluate ILS terms and triggers, a model must also provide a clear picture of the paths of aggregation linking the underlying risks, the potential economic impact of disaster scenarios, and the likelihood of those events occurring.

BDA London Executive Forum - November 28, 2017

Bermuda's Premier, regulator and leaders of Bermuda's global business sector highlighted the breadth, advantages and significant economic impact of the island's financial market during an awareness-raising cross-industry forum held in London late last year by the Bermuda Business Development Agency (BDA).

The day-long BDA Executive Forum on November 28 attracted close to 250 delegates encompassing a wide range of industries, and due to its success, BDA is planning similar events in New York and London this year. Featuring top regulatory and industry representatives in discussion panels, the forum's agenda covered hot-button topics, while emphasising the many elements that differentiate Bermuda-from the island's world-respected regulator and access to capital, to its deep pool of industry expertise.
