There is an ever emerging risk of Cyber crimes and to get a hold onto them, companies are relentlessly looking to price Cyber Insurance. The insurance is not unpopular but a target for everyone due to lack of data and which makes Cyber Insurance pricing painful.
We here accumulated some of the references. These will provide you an idea from the basic structure like “What is it?” to a glorious one consisting “the Modelling” of the epidemic, “the simulation” of this risk and Cyber Insurance Pricing.
These references consist of the Model processes like Copulas, Markov, Non-Markov, Weibull, Log – normal. Simulation of a cyber event will enable you to quantify( offcourse expected!) the risk and the expectation of infection which may look so pleasurous to you, if you are a statistical person.
This also involves the understanding and difference in pricing of an Independent and non-independent and the graphics make it more interesting!
In one of our very early article we tried to bring in your insights, a research paper by Martin Eling & Jan Hendrik Wirfs
