BLOG: Why Insurers Should Use Cyber Risk Ratings to Improve Underwriting
As cyber-attacks continue to rise in frequency and severity, cyber risk has become a significant concern for insurers. Traditional underwriting methods may not adequately capture the cyber risk exposure of the policies they underwrite, leaving insurers exposed to potential losses. Orpheus Cyber can help with this as we provide insurers with an innovative cyber risk rating system that can be used to improve underwriting decisions.
How can Orpheus Cyber improve underwriting?
- Customized Risk Rating
One of the significant advantages of Orpheus Cyber Risk Ratings is that they provide a customized risk rating for each policy. The Orpheus system takes into account various factors, such as the technology stack, employee security awareness, and overall risk management practices of the policyholder, to provide a unique and comprehensive risk rating. This rating can be used to assess the cyber risk exposure of the policy and help insurers make better-informed underwriting decisions.
- Flexible Solution
The Orpheus platform is flexible and can be adapted to the specific needs of insurers. Insurers can use the system to evaluate the cyber risk exposure of various types of policies, from small business policies to large enterprise policies. The system can also be customized to evaluate specific risk factors that are relevant to a particular line of business or industry. This flexibility allows insurers to use the Orpheus system to improve underwriting across their entire portfolio.
- Easy to Understand
The Orpheus Cyber Risk Ratings system provides risk ratings in a simple, easy-to-understand format. Insurers do not need to have the technical expertise to interpret the ratings. This means that insurers can quickly and easily assess the cyber risk exposure of policies they underwrite, without having to rely on IT experts or cybersecurity professionals.
- Improved Risk Management
By using Orpheus Cyber Risk Ratings, insurers can gain a better understanding of the cyber risk exposure of the policies they underwrite. This understanding can help insurers to identify potential areas of vulnerability in their policies and take action to mitigate those risks. This, in turn, can lead to improved risk management and reduced losses from cyber-attacks.
