WHITEHOUSE STATION, N.J., Nov. 14, 2017 /CNW/ -- In response to the growing threat of cyber risks facing commercial enterprises, Chubb has introduced the Cyber AlertSM mobile application, which is designed to offer U.S. and Canadian commercial cyber customers rapid incident response options and resources in the event of a cyber incident. This innovative solution provides customers with a simple, efficient and immediate means of obtaining assistance when an event occurs.
Each Chubb cyber policy includes access to Chubb's cyber incident response team, which is comprised of a diverse group of independent third-party service providers who have the capabilities and experience to help all sized organizations respond to cyber incidents. With the click of a button, Chubb's Cyber AlertSM mobile application provides policyholders with access to a live cyber response specialist. Once reported, an incident response coach is engaged to investigate the impact of the event, manage any legal or regulatory concerns, and engage the use of additional incident response services as needed. The Cyber AlertSM mobile application can be used by a single individual or integrated into larger corporate incident response plans.
"The first few hours and days following a cyber incident are the most critical," said Anthony Dolce, Vice President, Cyber Claims Lead, Chubb. "Being ready to respond and immediately engaging your incident response team can make all the difference in mitigating losses associated with a cyber incident. For example, given the significant uptick in ransomware incidents, enabling our customers to use their mobile device to take a photo of the ransomware demand and coordinate their incident response without using their computer or network truly differentiates this solution."
Through the Cyber AlertSM mobile application, customers can build a profile in advance so valuable time is not spent searching for an insurance policy or claim reporting information following an incident. This feature is particularly beneficial when a computer or network is inaccessible.
Version 1.0 of Chubb's Cyber AlertSM app supports iOS and Android and is available for commercial cyber customers.
