DPA Cyber Security Group
Primer Launch:
‘Cyber Insurance as a Catalyst for Best Practice’

Monday 13 May 2019
12.30-14.30

 

On Monday 13th May the DPA will launch its upcoming primer on the topic of ‘Cyber Insurance as a Catalyst for Best Practice’, which has been developed by the Cyber Security Working Group with input from across the cyber security and insurance industry.  The launch meeting, chaired by Baroness Neville-Jones, will take place from 12.30-14.30 in Westminster.

The roundtable will feature speakers from the cyber security and insurance industries followed by an hour long discussion on the findings of the primer and any next steps that the DPA could take.

The speakers are:

·         Sadie Creese, Professor of Cybersecurity at Oxford University and Director of the Global Cyber Security Capacity Building Centre at Oxford Martin School

·         Russell Price, Chair of the Cyber Insurance Forum and steering chairman in the BSI’s working group

·         James Dalton, Director of General Insurance of the Association of British Insurers (ABI)

·         Matthew Webb, Cyber Line Underwriter at Hiscox and Chair of the Lloyd’s of London (LMA) Cyber Insurance Panel

 

The document stresses that, due a confluence of factors, the cyber insurance market is now sufficiently mature that it would now be an appropriate moment for the government to highlight, as part of its ongoing cyber awareness and prevention efforts, the useful role of insurance in a constantly changing cyber threat landscape. This would feed into two key objectives identified by the Government: making the UK ‘the best place to start and grow a digital business’ and generally to make the UK ‘the safest place online’ and emulating the Home Office’s cyber aware campaign.

The roundtable will feature several speakers from the cyber security and insurance industries followed by an hour long discussion on the findings of the primer and any next steps that the DPA could take.

We very much hope that you will be able to join us for the launch of this primer and contribute to the discussion as to how the DPA can proceed and have your say on the direction of this crucial cyber resilience policy area.
