Willis Re Launches Cyber Risk Modeling Tool, PRISM-Re™
Feb 3 15
Willis Re unveiled cyber risk modeling tool that will enable insurers to quantify and manage their portfolio exposure to data breaches, the leading cause of cyber losses. In doing so, the new model - PRISM-Re™ - is a major breakthrough in advancing the insurance industry's ability to manage cyber risk and offer wider protection against the growing tide of cyber-attacks. Leveraging expertise from across the Willis Group, PRISM-Re™ was developed in collaboration with Willis Retail's cyber team and actuaries from Willis Risk & Analytics, whose Privacy Risk Insurance Strategy Model (PRISM-Re™) enables a single insured to assess their exposure to data breach losses. Similarly, PRISM-Re™ provides an objective analysis of the susceptibility to data breach events across the insurer's portfolio. Based upon the latest exposure data, the tool estimates the frequency of data breaches and the potential severity of insured losses arising from those events. The model also employs a 'common shock' methodology to encompass the possibility of contagion behavior, whereby numerous breaches could take place systemically across a single industry sector or related sectors. PRISM-Re™ therefore offers a way of simulating the data breach impact of a so-called 'cyber hurricane' or 'cyber tsunami'.
