Cyber ILS – Cyber Insurance-Linked Securities news

Cyber risks are seen as an area of opportunity and expansion for the insurance-linked securities (ILS) marketplace.

As demand for cyber insurance and cyber reinsurance grow, while there has been a general lack of cyber retrocession capacity, many are looking to the capital markets and ILS to fill the gaps.

The ILS market regularly discusses the potential for cyber ILS and cyber catastrophe bonds, while a number of companies have been exploring ceding more cyber insurance risk to the capital markets, using insurance-linked securities (ILS).
