Beazley has launched a cyber and breach response portal that provides exclusive access to a wealth of risk management information and risk mitigation tools to its Beazley Breach Response (BBR) policyholders in the UK, France, Spain and Italy.

 

Building on the well-established success of its client portal in the United States, Beazley’s international breach response team has developed a comprehensive set of training materials, incident response planning and risk assessment tools, designed to help organisations prepare for a cyber incident or data breach. With materials available in English, French, Spanish and Italian, clients can easily adapt the materials for their own organisations.

 

The portal also allows clients to report a cyber or data breach incident directly to Beazley’s in-house response team, allowing the rapid deployment of appropriate response services.

 


Raf Sanchez, international breach response manager, said: “Organisations approach breach preparation with varying levels of experience. In helping our clients through thousands of breaches, we've observed that those organisations that have a plan in place, understand their risks, undertake regular training and ensure that employees are aware of the threats, are the ones that respond most effectively. The suite of materials available through our portal is centred around these four key elements.  Judging by the success of our US client portal, we expect this to become the go-to source of information for clients wishing to reduce their exposure to risk and to prepare as effectively as they can should an incident occur.” 



As the industry-leading solution for data privacy and security risk management, BBR includes a range of services designed to help organisations respond to an actual or suspected cyber breach incident effectively, efficiently and with the aim of protecting its reputation and brand.

 

Beazley is a pioneer in cyber liability and data breach insurance.  It remains the only insurer to have a long-standing in-house global breach response team dedicated to coordinating the expert forensic, legal, notification and credit monitoring services that clients need to satisfy all legal requirements and maintain customer confidence. Since the launch of Beazley Breach Response in 2009, Beazley has helped clients handle thousands of data breaches.
