MMC Cyber Risk Handbook 2016: Increasing Resilience in the Digital Economy


Cyber Risk Handbook 2016 presents views from Marsh and McLennan Companies’ cyber leaders and leading third-party experts with whom we collaborate on how companies can assess cyber risks, develop comprehensive strategies and align their people to bolster cyber risk management.

Prepared by Marsh & McLennan Companies’ Global Risk Center, the new handbook captures insights from across our operating companies and around the world. The curated compendium of materials, drawn from articles, report extracts, surveys and joint research, includes insights on:

  • The evolving cyber threat landscape.
  • The importance of a shared approach to cyber threats.
  • Using an inside-out and outside-in cyber threat evaluation.
  • The need for robust risk assessment and quantification.
  • The people factor in cyber threat management.
  • Staffing and organizing a cyber risk management team

New Zealand risk consultant Chris Beh has contributed to the handbook with a chapter on cyber loss exposure and how to identify and develop underwriting.   This was summarised in a client briefing paper for New Zealand clients called 'Better Information leads to Better Cyber Coverage, and can be downloaded here separately from the full handbook.
