Beazley launches cyber incident response platform

Beazley has launched an online incident response platform for US cyber policyholders. This new platform will serve as a central location to monitor and manage incidents, and centralise communications between the policyholder, Beazley and specialist service providers.

Raf Sanchez, head of cyber services at Beazley, commented: “As the cyber risk landscape continues to evolve at pace, we continue to address these new and increased risks with changes to our service offering. This latest innovation will be an important tool for our policyholders to defend against cyber crime: providing enhanced cohesion, visibility and efficacy and therefore minimising the impact of cyber attacks.”

Paul Bantick, global head of cyber risks at Beazley, added: “The introduction of our incident rooms provides our policyholders with further peace of mind that a cyber incident will be dealt with in the most efficient and secure way possible. Today’s launch further demonstrates our core objective of continually innovating to improve our customer experience, and evolving and expanding our cyber ecosystem.”

The online incident response platform is expected to be rolled out in Europe and the rest of the world later.
