Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

In the contemporary landscape, cybercrime represents an ever-growing source of economic losses for companies. In particular, cyber risks pose a significant threat to various utility and industrial infrastructures. This threat stems not only from risks intrinsic to individual infrastructures but also from the intricate interconnections and interdependencies among them. Regardless of the specific infrastructure in question, ensuring its security necessitates an investment in cybersecurity tools and policies.

In addition to cybersecurity investments, which serve as a risk mitigation measure, cyber insurance emerges as an alternative tool for managing risks. Cyber insurance functions as a means of transferring risk. While it may seem that security investments and cyber insurance are mutually exclusive approaches to addressing cyber risks, they can, in fact, be effectively utilized in tandem. This involves employing a combination of strategies to enhance overall risk management.

This Special Issue provides a platform for researchers to present their novel and unpublished works on the economic aspects of cybersecurity and cyber insurance.  Both applied and theoretical works are appreciated in the analysis of cyber risk economic impacts on companies and the risk management measures adopted to mitigate them, such as, for example, security investments or the use of cyber insurance to transfer risk.
