Cyber Risks for Insurance
Client CoverageProviding Cyber Insurance to client companies who have not taken appropriate steps towards being digitally secure.
Home NetworksWorking from home has become the new normal. Employees are now accessing work accounts from home using a variety of different devices on home wifi networks. These networks are typically less secured.
Data BreachesData breaches can have serious consequences, including the loss of sensitive customer information and the potential for financial fraud.
Phishing AttacksThese attacks involve sending fraudulent emails or messages in order to trick the recipient into providing sensitive information, such as login credentials or credit card numbers.
Ransomware AttacksRansomware attacks can disrupt operations and cause significant downtime, which can lead to delays in project timelines and potentially result in financial losses.
Internet of Things (IoT)Companies are increasingly adopting IoT devices which can introduce additional vulnerabilities into the network.
Insurance Cyber Challenges
Protecting sensitive customer data from cyber attacks
Minimizing financial losses due to cyber attacks
Avoiding disruptions to business operations caused by cyber attacks
Protecting against impersonation and fraud by cyber criminals
Keeping systems and employees informed of the latest cyber threats
The Importance of Regular Testing
Every successful cyber attack begins with a vulnerability.
Regular testing can find these vulnerabilities before a threat tries to attack. Manual Penetration Testing and Vulnerability Assessments use the same methods as real attackers to determine where your weaknesses currently exist so that you can prioritize remediation efforts.
These proactive efforts can ensure that when the real attackers try to hack you, the digital doors will all be sealed. Learn more here!

The Nivee External Vulnerability Scan (EVS) is a security assessment using specialized software to scan your company's external-facing systems and networks for potential vulnerabilities. The scan focuses on your company's internet-based services and checks against listed Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE). New vulnerabilities are continually being added to the CVE register and it is very important that businesses ensure their systems stay up-to-date with the relevant CVEs.
Common oversights which lead to successful Cyber Attacks:
- Lack of awareness of CVEs present in their system(s)
- Inadequate frequency of scans performed
- Lack of patching, updating and upgrading
- Constantly changing cyber threat landscape
The Nivee EVS proactively identifies and addresses vulnerabilities in your external-facing systems and networks which are typically the first line of defense against cyber attacks. By conducting regular external vulnerability scans, you can reduce the risk of a successful cyber attack and improve your businesses overall security posture.
Identify VulnerabilitiesIdentify potential vulnerabilities in your company's external-facing networks, and report on patching issues, configuration errors and other common vulnerabilities.
Comply with RegulationsComply with security regulations, such as PCI DSS, HIPPA, and other consumer protection laws.
Out of Date ResourcesOur scans will be able to tell which resources are outdated and contain known vulnerabilities. The scan will outline any updates, upgrades and patching that is required across the environment.
Protect ReputationAn external vulnerability scan can help to prevent cyber security incidents and protect your company's reputation.
