cysmo® Core

Risk prevention through assessment of externally visible IT vulnerabilities

cysmo® Core covers the individual IT structures of companies in an automated rating.  cysmo® uses high-performance data generators, evaluates weak points visible from the outside with a passive big data approach and points out possible configuration errors. The rating is realised without accessing the company IT and does not entail any risks for the examined company.

The analysis can be used to derive customer-specific implications for risk prevention and concrete recommendations for actions.

Below you can find more information on the elements of cysmo® Core:

cysmo® Underwriting – Holistic risk assessment by means of an automated external view from the hacker’s perspective

Completed questionnaires serve as a good basis for the assessment of potential cyber risks for companies. However, it is not only the self-assessment that is important, but also the external perspective that an attacker would have.

With cysmo®, insurance companies can quickly and efficiently simulate an external attacker's view of the company to be rated. The information gained can be included in their risk assessment.

In combination with the results of the questionnaire this creates a comprehensive picture of a company's potential risk situation.

The renewal process can be made more efficient thanks to the automation of cysmo®. The insurance company recognises the risk tendencies at first glance and can see whether and how threat situations change.

cysmo® Sales – Cyber risks translated for the insurance business without media disruptions

Many market participants in the insurance business consider the cyber or IT world to be incomprehensible or even frightening.

Having recognised this, we have developed a solution that translates the cyber risks into metaphors that are easy to understand. Thanks to the interplay with individually storable rules for deriving business decisions (questionnaires), customised offers can be defined.

Sales employees and customers remain in their familiar spheres but at the same time can refer to the results of a technical analysis.

cysmo® Cyber Reports – Insurance consulting and monitoring service for individual risk assessment

Customer reports in PDF format that are generated at the end of a risk assessment record the risk assessment process and can be stored in the data management systems – digitally or as (paper) files.

The reports are a solid basis for confidence-building sales meetings for cyber insurances: even before the contract completion, the customer is already given real added value thanks to the individual risk assessment – which promotes the perception to have chosen the right cyber insurance provider.

In existing customer relationships, regularly provided reports serve as a monitoring instrument for both the customer ("How secure is my current IT from the outside?") and the insurer ("What risks does my customer currently face?") – and are a perfect customer loyalty instrument.
