Cyber Terrorism Research and Insurance Webinar

ARPC’s Cyber Terrorism Research and Insurance Seminar will now take place as a Webinar on Thursday, 3 September at 4pm (AEST).

ARPC’s Cyber Terrorism Research and Insurance Webinar will show the findings of ARPC’s ground-breaking cyber terrorism research project, titled: ‘Insurance Risk Assessment of Cyber Terrorism in Australia’.

Speakers from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the University of Cambridge’s Centre for Risk Studies at the Judge Business School (Cambridge) will outline key findings and explain their implications for the insurance industry and government. There will also be a discussion and Q&A in which attendees can participate.

This free-of-charge event also provides an opportunity for ARPC to thank stakeholders who generously participated in workshops and interviews to help complete the research.
