We’re the UK’s first (and thus far only) exclusive cyber insurance broker. We match our clients to the right policies (ones that actually pay out), but the value we deliver far exceeds just a policy.
“We are passionate about working with the cybersecurity industry and believe collaboration is the only way forward. Cyber insurance is not a replacement for cybersecurity.”
Sceptical about cyber insurance? You’re not alone. It’s easy to say, “but we’re different”, but we don’t just say we’re different; we live by it. And we’re not just different from those that came before us; we’re better.
We provide our clients with the planning, preparation and policies to cover their business before, during and after a cyber-incident. Let’s face it, there are continuously evolving cyber threats plaguing businesses and executives worldwide, and even the most thorough security defences can (and will) fail. We’re there as a security blanket when possibly the worst professional day of their career occurs, ensuring their business gets back up and running as quickly and painlessly as possible.
We are passionate about working with the cybersecurity industry and believe collaboration is the only way forward. Cyber insurance is not a replacement for cybersecurity. On the contrary, obtaining insurance without a demonstration of good security posture is impossible. That’s why we sit at the beating heart of the cyber industry, working with high-profile partners perfectly placed to deliver real-time security feedback, incident planning and resilience enhancement.
Whilst we’d love to shout loud and proud about all our clients, we understand and respect the need for discretion and privacy in the world of cybersecurity and cyber insurance. If it’s not in our clients’ best interest to advertise their custom on our website, we’re not going to do it – they come first. That said, once we have a signed NDA in place, we’re more than happy (actually, ecstatic) to share client testimonials and case studies with you. Bring it on.
It’s about empowering execs with the confidence to discuss cyber, delivering assurance that they are taking the steps needed to secure and protect their business. That’s why we’ve launched Assured Intelligence, a content platform specifically tailored for senior execs. We practice what we preach, and we preach what we practice, and as such we take it upon ourselves to invest in our own cyber knowledge, inviting execs to join us by indulging in our high-quality, independent editorial.

We will not talk cyber or insurance until we have a good grasp of the business model. For a policy to be all-encompassing, we need answers that will not fit on a questionnaire submission form.
