The Products and Services of CyberCube

CyberCube offers three main product areas, which are supported by a deep well of cyber expertise and support services. These are:

A digital society carries the risk of a major attack on a core digital asset that causes a systemic, catastrophic financial loss across geographical boundaries and industries. Cyber risk is a dynamic, man-made peril that is evolving rapidly. The motivations of cyber attackers, their methods and the technical vulnerabilities they exploit are constantly in flux. 

Developing a robust, forward-looking view of risk is a complex and resource-intensive task. CyberCube’s Portfolio Manager is a financial model that enables insurers to quantify the total maximum loss their insurance portfolio might be exposed to in the event of a systemic cyber attack.

2. Account Manager – cyber underwriting tool for insurers

For insurance companies, how can they select the most secure organizations to insure, that present the least risk of financial loss from a cyber attack? How can an insurer collect meaningful risk indicators that allow them to assess an organization’s risk posture at a glance?
