e-Sher states that it provides its clients with access to technical expertise through the facility’s partnership agreements with nationally recognized leaders in cyber security. This service includes software that finds and eliminates security weaknesses and effectively detects hacker intrusions. Additionally, these risk management tools have the potential to help measure losses more efficiently for improved claims management.
