Allianz, Cisco, Apple and Aon have together launched a cyber risk management solution for organizations to better manage and protect themselves from cyber risk associated with ransomware and other malware-related threats. The solution is an integration of a cyber resilience evaluation service from Aon, Cisco & Apple’s secure technology, combined with Allianz’s enhanced cyber insurance coverage.
Key Features include –

– Cyber Insurance: Allianz offers cyber insurance products made using individual risk insights and is underwritten by Allianz Global Corporate & Specialty (AGCS). This is aided with Cisco Ransomware Defense and secure Apple products.
– Incident Response Services: Organizations have access to Cisco and Aon’s Incident Response teams in the event of a malware attack.
Bill Scaldaferri, President & CEO, AGCS North America has said of this offring: ”Proactive analysis coupled with the latest technology creates an ideal defense against today’s ever-changing ransomware and malware attacks.This strategic alliance with Aon, Apple and Cisco allows us to provide a unique solution to companies using this integrated platform to manage risk and ultimately strengthen their battle against high-profile threats.”
Ultimately, this initiative is a good example of both multi-disciplinary co-operation in the face of new digital threats, and more importantly, an insurance offering that goes beyond mere financial compensation.
