Cybersecurity is a common concern across industries these days, but it can difficult to quantify just how at risk your business really is. Insurer Chubb is hoping to shed some light on the subject with its recent launch of the “Chubb Cyber Risk Index.” This free to access, proprietary interactive platform purports to leverage Chubb’s roughly 20 years of data underwriting cyber claims in order to highlight threats based on an organization’s size and industry. “Chubb has nearly two decades of cyber claims data, which enables us to help clients gain insight into the types of events affecting their industries,” said Executive Vice President Michael Tanenbaum. “That insight has helped us to monitor the evolution of the marketplace and understand various threats and how they impact different businesses, based on their profile.” The index will be updated biweekly at first, though the ultimate goal is to eventually offer data in real time.
