Insurtech In Focus – Cybrisc (ITUS Secure Technologies)
18th December 2020
Welcome to the fourth edition of our ‘Insurtech in Focus’. The purpose of this series is to illustrate the cutting edge, problem focused and transformative offerings of our Insurtech startups and how Insurtechs and the wider industry are collaborating to deliver innovation for the sector. In this issue we showcase the Cybrisc offering.
Cybrisc offer Smart Real Time Cyber Risk Monitor Assessment / Validation. The solution could simply be described as Telematics” for Cyber Cover. The firm has identified Cyber as a major threat to SME segment generally. Current rating and questionnaires are blunt instruments, open to interpretation with little distinction between “good” and “bad” risks.
Cybrisc look to revolutionise this approach with Real Time Holistic Risk Dashboard encompassing a wide range of key Cyber security metrics. This feed is available to Insurers to review Dashboard and client responses and compliance with parameters set out in Cyber policy for that entity.
There are many use cases for the offering some of which include:
• Allows clients to adopt true Risk Management approach to Cyber.
• Best Practice Cyber Certification which could become a required standard for 3rd party suppliers to hold in order to supply host firm (Cyber risk often lies in 3rd party suppliers / customers)
• Line of sight for Clients and Insurers to identify vulnerabilities and adopt best Cyber security processes and compliment Cyber Insurance Policy
• Real Time monitoring of processes & parameters
• Allow for accurate risk based pricing of Cyber Insurance policies.
