MAPFRE RE aims to leverage Kovrr’s portfolio management solution for analyzing accumulated cyber risk exposure in cyber (re)insurance treaties.

MAPFRE RE, the reinsurance unit of MAPFRE Group, a global insurance and reinsurance provider, today announced that it is collaborating with Kovrr, a cyber risk modeling company to advance their capabilities for assessing accumulated cyber risk exposure in their treaties. 

Kovrr’s portfolio management is the first solution to introduce advanced machine learning sampling technology which creates representational synthetic portfolios when information regarding treaty risk composition is limited. The solution allows (re)insurers to financially quantify cyber risk for facultative books and treaties. 

“MAPFRE RE is keen to understand cyber risks and our potential exposure”, said Maite González Vargas, Global Chief Innovation at MAPFRE RE. “Kovrr has provided us extensive value and expertise to identify and quantify cyber risk. Kovrr’s technology can efficiently analyze cyber risk accumulation.”

Our mission is to adopt disruptive solutions for the insurance industry and Kovrr’s collaboration with MAPFRE RE is an example of what (re)insurers and technology startups can accomplish when they bring their expertise together.
