Cyber Liability Insurance
Explore the possibilities unlocked by cyber risk scores
Underwriting cyber insurance can now be both safe and profitable. Cyber risk scoring helps both insurers and insured understand the risks so that premiums, terms, and coverage levels support stakeholders and encourage secure outcomes.
As cyber liability insurance becomes more commonplace, both insurers and insured need accurate ways of understanding risks. Insurers suffer when they can't manage the risk pool. Insured suffer when premiums, terms, and coverage aren't commensurate with their security profile.
Cyber risk scores are standardized and easily understood by both parties, significantly improving the efficiency for all stakeholders.
When Providing Insurance
Building and monitoring a pool of insured is difficult without reliable data sources. Some cyber risk scores are based on inferential data, and periodic assessments are cost prohibitive. Cyber risk scores based on direct observation built for scale alleviate these pain points.
