Cyber Risk

I ran across this report, done by the Zurich Insurance Group, on cyber risk. Although it is aimed at the business community, I thought the executive summary was compelling. Among the points made in the ad that I saw was:

The report argues that the Internet’s stability is likely to decrease in the future – and given that it is ever more tightly linked with key systems such as the power grid and water supply, even one cyber failing has far-reaching destructive potential.

The full report (32pp) is titled Risk Nexus; Beyond data breaches: global interconnections of cyber risk.  See the related article for a summary and recommendations.
