Cyber Terrorism Cover
2018 has proved to be a landmark year for Pool Re. Firstly, with effect from 1 April 2018, Pool Re extended its cover to include an Act of Terrorism, which utilises a cyber trigger to cause physical damage to property. We have also deepened our knowledge of the threat posed by terrorists using the cyber domain and have undertaken further modelling work with the Centre of Risk Studies at Judge Business School, as well as holding multi-disciplinary workshops with public and private sector colleagues. Conrad Prince CB, Former Director General for Operations and Deputy Head of GCHQ, has joined as our Senior Cyber Terrorism Advisor. He brings a wealth of experience of cyber, government and business.
