October is National Cybersecurity Awareness Month (NCSAM). In 2004, the Department of Homeland Security and the National Cyber Security Alliance launched the initiative to help businesses and individuals stay safe and secure online.
NCSAM 2019 will emphasize personal accountability and stress the importance of taking proactive steps to enhance cybersecurity at home and in the workplace. This year's overarching message—"Own IT. Secure IT. Protect IT."—will focus on a few key areas, including citizen privacy, consumer devices and e-commerce security.
Big "I" members can help their commercial clients take the first step to understanding their online security posture by recommending Coalition's free cybersecurity assessment.
In performing the assessment, Coalition, Big “I" Markets' cyber insurance partner, evaluates organizations' weaknesses the same way that cybercriminals do—using publicly available information. This process provides your clients with information on vulnerabilities, compromised credentials and recommendations to fix them. Policyholders can implement improvements and refresh the assessment at any time through their online dashboard.
As your client's dedicated risk management partner, Coalition's security team is available to provide additional context and to help policyholders implement security and loss controls at no additional cost. Coalition's competitive premiums, comprehensive coverage, cybersecurity tools and mitigation services are unparalleled. No business should go without them.
