  • Unsurpassed precision in determining cyber policy limits, premiums, and accumulations.

  • Daily updated enrichment of exposure data for maximized underwriting intelligence.

  • Seamless integration across the entire underwriting workflow.


With cyber risks evolving at breakneck speed, insurers require high-frequency modeling based on the latest threats. As reported by some media outlets, advanced modeling platforms built on accurate and current data are critical for insurance risk assessment. Model 6 delivers the most up-to-date capabilities.

Key benefits include:

  • Model 6 allows insurers to understand the threat landscape better by incorporating new and updated cyber risk data from more than 900 sources, including the latest incident and claims data.

  • Insurers can improve underwriting decisions as Model 6 has retooled event models to more accurately assess today's current risk of ransomware attacks, data breaches, business interruptions and their modeled losses.

  • Insurers can now proactively manage portfolios by leveraging Model 6's projections for loss ratios, expected AAL, exceedance probability curves, and other insights that reflect today's most pressing cyber threats.

By harnessing best-in-class data science and actuarial rigor, Model 6 empowers insurers with superior risk insights and confidence to maximize profits, customizable to each insurer’s risk appetite and business goals.
