Cyber Scenario Modeling and Decision Making
Your company is exposed to cyber risk, either through the affirmative cyber policies you choose to write or through the policies in which cyber is neither excluded nor included, also known as “silent cyber.” Do you know what this emerging line of business means for your enterprise risk? In this recording, originally presented on November 2, 2016, Scott Stransky and Evan Ritt discuss AIR's approach to cyber scenario modeling and how modeling output can be leveraged to answer critical cyber risk management questions.
