Bermuda-based property and casualty re/insurer Sompo International has announced that it plans to offer complimentary cyber risk management services for email security protection to all eligible policyholders in the US.
To realise this goal, Sompo International has partnered with SecurIT360, a full-service security consulting firm, and The Crypsis Group, a leading cyber risk management firm.
Going forward, qualifying Sompo International Cyber clients will have the option to access and engage cyber consultants from SecurIT360, who will perform customised reviews of current email security configurations and protocols.
The expectation is that this will help clients to better proactively manage their risk against cyber criminals, who frequently target email systems as a method of attack.
Each live consultation includes best practice recommendations following the Center for Internet Security guidelines and other relevant standards, Sompo International explained.
“Sompo International is committed to helping clients proactively address known and emerging cyber risks, including email system vulnerabilities,” Richard DePiero, Senior Vice President, U.S. Cyber Product Leader for Sompo International.
“Email is a common attack vector utilized by adversaries and the risk can be mitigated by ensuring that our customers enterprise email systems are configured properly,” he continued.
“We are excited to partner with SecurIT360 and The Crypsis Group and offer our insureds the industry’s first email security review service which expands and enhances the risk management services we provide.”
