Conference Event Summary
The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Thursday, October 29th 2020, or created by us.
The International Workshop on Cyber Insurance and Risk Controls (CIRC 2021) is a workshop organized and sponsored by the Cybersecurity-wing of the University of Oxford. It is co-located as part of the CyberSA 2021 conference.
Insurance companies are facing new challenges with the increasing demand for policies to cover cyber incidents such as data breaches and business interruption. Traditional risk assessments are no longer enough to understand the business impact of a cyber-attack. Cyber Value-at-Risk (CVaR) models have been proposed to quantify security incidents, but they are still quite limited in understanding the specifics of each company and quantifying the risk for a large number of feasible scenarios. A more holistic approach should be considered, but the lack of data and understanding of risks makes it a challenging problem. In this workshop, we solicit research papers and the latest advances in the topic of cyber insurance, as well as case analyses that examine the effectiveness of current security controls.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to the following:
- Cyber Insurance
- Cyber Risk Assessment
- Cyber Risk Propagation
- Security Controls and Standards
- Cybersecurity Metrics and their Measurements
- Maturity Models and Frameworks
- Cyber Value-at-Risk (CVaR)
- Cyber Economics
- Economics Approaches for Cybersecurity
- Cyber Harm
