Written by Roger Peverelli and Reggy de Feniks - Founders The DIA Community on Sep 21, 2022

Cyber-attacks unfortunately come with increased digital business. Customers are requesting insurance coverages, but they are often not able to obtain simple and swift insurance solutions. Due to the increased number and costs of cyber claims and the challenge to evaluate risk in a complex and highly dynamic scenario, insurance players are struggling to deal with Cyber Risk.

The new paradigm is to combine insurance with proactive Cyber Risk Monitoring and Mitigation during the entire life of a policy and not only when a policy is activated.At the same time, it is important to provide advanced support in case of a Cyber Incident, allowing customers to contain damages and reduce the costs for insurance.

Coinnect provides a unique combination of Services and a Cyber Insurtech Platform that is built to assist Insurance Players like Loss Adjusters, Brokers, MGAs, Insurance, Reinsurance Companies acquire new customers, proactively monitor, and mitigate customers Cyber Risk, effectively respond to Cyber Clams and Ransomware.

Ransomware is the number one cause of Cyber Claims for insurers. This is what Coinnect has tapped into. Traditionally, in Cyber Insurance clients need to fill in a long questionnaire to assess their Cyber Risk, sign a contract and wait for the renewal to get a next questionnaire. Coinnect introduced a more automated process to assess the Cyber Risk of a prospect, using technical evidence collected with its platform, and it continuously monitors the Cyber Risk during the life of the insured client, it proactively advices the client and the insurer in case of Cyber Risks, and it supports the client and insurers in case of a Cyber Incident.

Coinnect’s technology is built from hands-on experience dealing with Ransomware attacks. The platform provides detailed Ransomware Intelligence data that is automatically extracted, findings from the Darkweb, advanced monitoring of Cyber Attack surface, Data Leaks, Risk indices and proactive protection for insured clients. Leading to mitigation services that can be bundled with insurances.
