The interdependent nature of security on the Internet causes a negative externality that results in under-investment in technology-based defences. Previous research suggests that, in such an environment, cyber-insurers affect network security and user welfare.

In our model, a user's probability to incur damage (from being attacked) depends on both his security and the network security.
