Chubb Enhances Cyber Risk Service Offerings

Chubb has expanded its cyber risk service offerings to further support all commercial clients in reducing exposures and mitigating potential losses.

Russ Cohen, vice president, Cyber & Technology Practice Leader, Chubb Global Risk Advisors, noted that as a top cyber insurer Chubb has access to a rich set of data that it is continuously analyzing, along with public trend and policy data, that provide insights into the vulnerabilities that policyholders face. “Our enhanced cyber service offerings help bridge the gap between cyber insurance and cyber security expertise to help our clients stay protected in a rapidly shifting environment,” Cohen said.

Adding to the existing suite of cyber services for incident response and loss mitigation, new services include:

  • Cyber Vulnerability Alert System that sends customized email alerts highlighting the most critical and recent vulnerabilities associated with software programs clients use. When appropriate, specific urgent alerts are sent out to clients potentially impacted by unfolding cyber incidents.
  • Multifactor Authentication (MFA) Assessment and Implementation services that allow clients to select, design, review, and test their MFA programs.
  • Patch Management services that help policyholders deploy updates to address known vulnerabilities in software.
  • Perimeter Email Security services that facilitate email filtering and sandboxing to keep malicious emails out of their inboxes.
  • Cyber Services Orientation service that allows policyholders to sign up for a virtual session with Chubb’s team of Cyber Risk Advisors to review the clients’ cyber services and answer their questions about cyber risk.
