Cyber attacks, data loss, and cyber extortion remain the top-ranked risks faced by directors and officers.

A new tool assists organisations in optimising their insurance coverage to align with their risk profiles effectively:

  • Helps you better understand your privacy breach and network outage risk. It gives insight into how often you could experience an event and the potential cost of those events.
  • Helps you make smarter decisions about your risk management strategy:  evaluate customized insurance strategies, including limit adequacy and overall value you can expect from each.
  • Evaluate and compute quotes from carriers with financial decision support metrics like “Value from Insurance” and “Premium Return on Investment”.
  • Model the impact of changes in your controls posture on cyber risk.
  • See the impact of insurance structures on your loss potential.

  • Privacy breach: Any company that holds or collects significant sensitive employee, customer or third-party data. Results are most meaningful for companies with more than 50,000 records.
  • Network Outage: Any company that risks lost revenue or employee efficiency due to a network outage. Results are most meaningful for companies with annual revenue of at least $100 million.
