The Centre for Risk Studies, in collaboration with Pool Re, the national terrorism pool, held a launch event in London on November 28 for the publication of a new report ‘Cyber Terrorism: Assessment of the Threat to the Insurance’.

This report is an assessment of the current status and future shape of the cyber terrorist threat to the UK mainland and economy.

The research was undertaken over the course of two years collaboration between the Centre for Risk Studies and Pool Re Ltd. It provides the basis of a change in policy to the Pool Re scheme that will go into action in April 2018.
