“We view cyber risk as event risk that can have material impact on sectors and individual issuers,”


Moody’s Managing Director Derek Vadala

Banks, securities firms, financial market infrastructures and hospitals, all of which rely heavily on technology for operations, distribution of content or customer engagement are at high risk, says Moody’s Investors Service in a new report.

“Data disclosure and business disruption are the two primary types of cyber event risk that we view as having the potential for material impact on issuers’ financial profiles and business prospects.”

2) potential impact of cyber events via disruption of critical businesses processes or negative reputational effects that lead to a loss of revenue as a result of customer attrition, for example.
