Cyber Security and Enhanced Cyber Insurance

Apple and Cisco Team up with Aon and Allianz for Cyber Security Insurance for the Enterprise Apple, Cisco Team Up With Insurance Companies to Offer Cybersecurity Discounts for Businesses
Mandy Jefferson | 07 February, 2018, 01:25

Combined with individual risk insights with the Cyber Resilience Evaluation, cyber security insurance coverage is enhanced for business customers.

The arrangement, which also includes insurance broker Aon Plc, will help businesses fortify their cyber security defenses and make them eligible to score more favorable terms for cyber coverage, such as lower or no deductibles, along with support services in the event of attack, the companies said.

The four companies believe that cyber threats are not the only problems for cybersecurity risk.

Low adoption of cyber insurance combined with a fragmented security technology market and a security skills shortage means it is hard for many organisations to understand and manage this risk effectively. "There's an opportunity for them to resell the components of Cisco ransomware defense solution, and the conversation about risk and risk management and how we're engaging with insurance industry has been a hot topic". "That's why, from the beginning, Apple has built products from the ground up with security in mind, and one of the many reasons why businesses around the world are choosing our products to power their enterprise".
