MONTREAL, Jan. 8, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IDT911, a leader in identity management and data risk management services, is proud to announce two new tools to assess the risks and costs associated with small business privacy breaches: the Data RiskCompass and the Breach Expense RiskCompass.

Data RiskCompass and Breach Expense RiskCompass are innovative online tools exclusively available to IDT911 partners as part of the company's enhancement to its DataRiskStages® privacy breach services. Together, the tools bring awareness to the risks affecting small businesses and drive discussion towards the right behaviors and coverage for the business.

The interactive Data RiskCompass provides a value-added benefit to partners by helping to educate their small business policyholders about behaviors that may put sensitive information at risk of a privacy breach. More than standard underwriting questions, policyholders will answer a series of simple questions to obtain their privacy breach risk score of 1 to 100. Then they can easily map out the weaknesses in their company's data security and obtain best practice tips on how to eliminate them. Breach Expense RiskCompass helps insurance brokers to better promote privacy breach coverage policies and makes it easier to determine appropriate coverage limits for commercial policyholders in this emerging market.

"As a company that caters to the insurance industry, we're always looking for ways to make the brokers' job easier and help them educate their clients," said Matt Cullina, Chief Executive Officer of IDT911. "These tools give brokers the information they need to recommend coverage limits for emerging risks, giving brokers another customer touch point and increasing a cyber-insurance or privacy breach insurance sale."
