AISA VIC Branch Meeting | 26 April 2023

AISA Branch Meeting
Hosted by the AISA Victorian Branch, please join us for a face-to-face meeting and networking opportunity with a interactive presentation and discussion on Navigating systemic cyber risks: Addressing the insurability issue with guest speaker Melissa Tan, Head of Cyber Insurance and Partner at Landers & Rogers.


Topic: Navigating systemic cyber risks: Addressing the insurability issue 
The digital revolution has brought about an unprecedented level of interconnectedness in the world, transforming society and the way we do business, dramatically improving efficiency, quality, productivity and ultimately value. However, there is also a growing concern of "systemic cyber risks" that can have far-reaching consequences globally due to various forms of interdependency in the ecosystem, whether financial, biological, logistical or digital. There is also a fear that such risks are "uninsurable". To effectively tackle global risks such as "systemic cyber risks", there is a need for a common understanding of what the problem entails.

In this seminar, we will cover: 

  • The concept of systemic cyber risks and what it looks like; 
  • The current threat environment and how it has fuelled systemic cyber risks; 
  • The insurability issue of systemic cyber risks and how the insurance industry is tackling this risk.
Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions of the speaker and networking drinks with light refreshments will be served during the event.
