Noetic for Cyber Insurance Applications and Renewals

Understand insurability.
Influence coverage.
Better negotiate premiums.

Cyber incidents are the #1 business threat globally, and the demand for cyber liability coverage has never been higher. As such, cyber insurance providers are doubling down on the basic security qualifications for applications and renewals.

The Challenges of Obtaining Cyber Insurance

While cyber insurance is an essential component of a comprehensive cybersecurity strategy, there are several challenges organizations may face when seeking cyber insurance. Noetic’s experienced consultants can effectively assess and communicate your cybersecurity posture to insurance providers, so you can enhance your chances of obtaining appropriate and cost-effective cyber insurance coverage.

Strict Cyber Insurance Requirements

Carriers have set much higher security hygiene expectations for their book of business in response to the evolving threat and vulnerability landscape.

Cyber Liability Rate Inflation

As costs with cyber insurance claims continue to surge, obtaining coverage becomes increasingly difficult and expensive.

Laborious Risk Assessments

Since there’s no magic formula for insurance underwriting, inconsistent and laborious processes drain internal resources, limiting the ability to negotiate policy limits or rates.

Noetic Key Features

Attack Path Mapping

Cyber incidents have a direct impact on insurability, and insurers are just as concerned with existing vulnerabilities and exposures as they are with your data breach history.

Noetic ingests and extracts insights from existing vulnerability management tools, IT asset management tools, inventory systems such as CMDBs, and third-party data including NIST, NVD and CISA so that organizations can pinpoint and close the most accessible pathways to their organization.

Continuous Controls Monitoring

Most cyber insurers consider the same 12 controls when reviewing a cyber insurance application.

With Noetic, users can automatically identify and remediate high-risk coverage gaps before they raise a red flag with insurers.  This includes

  • Identifying and managing orphaned machines and shadow IT
  • Depreciating unused assets
  • Locating sensitive and unsecured datasets

Intuitive Security Dashboards & Trend Reporting

Noetic ingests and correlates data from its connector ecosystem to provide a consistent, accurate view of your security hygiene.

These dashboards enable users to instantly gather detailed information about previous incidents, justify risk tolerance levels, and demonstrate improvements over time. These cohesive insights empower users to validate insurability or negotiate premiums.
