Underwriting cyber coverage is hard—and the challenges are only increasing as the world becomes more interconnected.

Demand for commercial cyber insurance is expected soon to exceed $6 billion in annual premiums.1 Do you have the tools you need to seize this opportunity?

Verisk’s Cyber Underwriting Report offers a solution

With dozens of dynamic, evolving variables, writing cyber coverage efficiently and effectively every day is a challenge. Incomplete data on prospective clients, a lack of cyber loss history, and gaps in day-to-day processes further interfere with the quick and profitable underwriting of new business.


Drawing on multiple internal and external sources of technographic and firmographic information, Verisk’s Cyber Underwriting Report provides:

  • A cyber score to help with risk selection
  • A score comparing the cyber risk of a company and its industry peers to all other industries
  • A score for annual average probability of data compromise and business interruption related to cloud downtime

The report provides actionable insights from:

  • Risk modeling based on 12.4 million actual cyber exposures
  • Analyses informed by security data, nearly 100,000 historical cyber incidents, and cyber insurance claims
  • Machine learning and stochastic modeling to derive frequency and severity measures
