This lecture by Graeme Newman looks at one of the fastest growing lines of business - Cyber insurance. Following the technology revolution that we've experienced in the last 20 years there is hardly a line of insurance that has not or will not be affected by cyber risk. This presentation demystifies this increasingly important topic and provides an insight into how it can be assessed, managed and ultimately insured.

Cyber insurance is one of the hottest topics in insurance right now, yet it is also one of the least well understood. This presentation cuts through the hype and looks at the real drivers behind cyber insurance, what insurers and brokers really need to be concerned about and discusses ways in which the market is likely to evolve over the next few years.
