The Royal United Services Institute (RUSI), an independent think tank engaged in defense and security studies, is partnering with the University of Kent (UoK) to conduct research on how cyber insurance impacts security behavior. The project, titled "Incentivising Cybersecurity through Cyber Insurance (ICCI)," will delve into the different factors that drive organizations, including small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs), to implement adequate measures for managing cyber risk. The study will also explore why an enterprise may not feel compelled to introduce such measures to prevent cyberattacks. It will examine the use of cyber insurance to push enterprises toward better security behavior. RUSI and UoK researchers will work with practitioners and policymakers in government, industry, and academia during the project. This article continues to discuss the aim of this research.
