Farmington, Connecticut, UNITED STATES

New York, Sept. 25, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Specialist insurer, Beazley, has launched a Cyber & Breach Response portal exclusively for use by its brokers. Reflecting Beazley’s position as a leading cyber liability and data breach insurer, this new portal is the gateway to an all-encompassing set of resources designed to help brokers remain informed and educated on the constantly evolving cyber risk and data breach landscape.

Once registered, brokers will have unlimited access to a vast suite of information: from cyber basics, through to industry-specific issues, regulatory updates, product information, breach and claim examples and risk insights. Brokers will also be able to ask questions of Beazley’s teams directly from the site and access a wide variety of external sources that provide additional knowledge and insight.

And we believe the insurance market can play a crucial role in helping them prepare. We have created this portal to give brokers the critical insight and tools they need to understand the risk environment our mutual clients face in these challenging times.” 

The portal complements, Beazley’s dedicated site for clients with a data breach policy, which offers an extensive range of information and resources to help them understand the services available to them and best prepare and plan for a data breach event.
