CFC expands into North America and Australia

Specialist insurer, CFC, has announced the expansion of its cyber threat analysis capability into North America and Australia.

CFC Response proactively scans its cyber customers for specific risk factors and vulnerabilities actively being targeted. Using its mobile app, CFC then alerts vulnerable customers to the specific threats impacting their business in real-time and works with the customer to mitigate the issue and prevent attack.

“Brokers and customers must expect more from their cyber insurance providers. It’s not just about policy coverage, but rather a comprehensive service that works to protect you against cyber attack from the moment you become a customer, as well as minimise the impact should an incident occur,” said Roger Francis, managing director of CFC Response. “The expansion of our cyber threat analysis capability into the US and Australia ensures we have follow-the-sun surveillance and support for our customers around the world.”

In the last two years, CFC has notified thousands of customers to potential high-risk vulnerabilities in their systems, detected and helped mitigate nearly 1,000 malware cases and stopped hundreds of ransomware attacks, which, it calculates, equates to tens of millions of pounds in potential losses.
