The SEPP is provided in partnership with the security firm SecurIT360 and offers a suite of services and resources to help organizations prevent social engineering fraud and act swiftly to mitigate suspected incidents.

BHSI writes primary and excess fidelity and crime insurance for a range of business segments, including private and nonprofit customers, and can enhance coverage to respond to executive impersonation and social engineering losses.

SEPP provides eligible BHSI customers with access to:

  • A 24-hour hotline to help triage and manage suspected incidents
  • Social engineering, phishing simulations, and training
  • An online library of information and educational materials to help employees recognize and divert attacks and management to ‘harden’ the organization against incidents.

“Executive impersonation and social engineering losses have become a significant threat to private and nonprofit organizations,” said Brian O’Neill, head of Fidelity & Crime at BHSI. “We are always looking for ways to help our customers minimize losses and SEPP, along with our enhanced Fidelity & Crime Insurance, offers essential protections.”
