Specialist lines underwriting agency, CFC, has extended its cyber product suite with the launch of a new online hub offering specialized cyber risk management and response services.
CFC has partnered with several technology providers to provide clients access to risk management tools, templates and advice to help them avoid a breach. This includes discounted access to encryption software and security monitoring, as well as free privacy consulting and anti-virus technology. Clients are able to choose the tools that best suit their individual needs.
The portal also delivers access to a global panel of partners selected by CFC to assist policyholders in the case of a cyber event, including specialists in breach response, forensic accounting, security services and public relations.
According to CFC Director Graeme Newman, the launch of the new online hub provides response service should a cyber event happen, but also helps prevent a loss from occurring in the first place. “Our cyber hub allows policyholders, regardless of size, sector or location, to access the information and tools that are the most relevant to their own operation and create a complete solution to their cyber needs from risk management to loss mitigation.”
