ARPC will host a Cyber Terrorism Research and Insurance Seminar on Wednesday, 18 March 2020 to share the findings of ARPC’s cyber terrorism research project titled: ‘Insurance Risk Assessment of Cyber Terrorism in Australia’. The seminar will take place at NSW Parliament House, Macquarie St, Sydney.

The aim of the research was to explore current and prospective cyber terrorism threats, plausible cyber terrorism scenarios and the practicalities of extending insurance coverage to include cyber terrorism in Australia. ARPC’s research partners were the Centre for Risk Studies, Cambridge Judge Business School, University of Cambridge and the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development.

With the project now complete, ARPC is keen to share the research findings with our government and insurance industry stakeholders who generously supported our research through active participation in cyber workshops and other means.
