Whilst the effects of business interruption (BI) may be more apparent and historically modelled in a property insurance context, how are cyber risk policies addressing and insuring BI risks? Coverage varies and in this session we will consider examples of policy wordings and identify, with the assistance of illustrative calculations, the practical and monetary effects of those wordings.
