a global leader in risk mitigation, investigations, compliance, cyber resilience, security, and incident response solutions, has announced a partnership with NetDiligence®, a leading provider of cyber risk readiness and response services, to deliver a suite of cyber risk monitoring solutions via automated enrollment through NetDiligence’s eRiskHub®. The partnership is launching with the provision of dark web threat monitoring through Kroll’s CyberDetectER® DarkWeb, the first of the service’s planned offerings.
The proactive monitoring begins days after binding a cyber policy, requiring no additional input during onboarding, and continues to notify insureds when new threats are discovered. Backed by over 90 global patents and more than 14 years of experience monitoring the dark web, CyberDetectER® DarkWeb notifies insureds when a cyber threat has been discovered, showing details of the alert, including where their compromised information was found, and provides suggested mitigation steps.
“Kroll’s Cyber Risk team is excited to join NetDiligence in helping carriers give insureds proven solutions to fast-track their cybersecurity maturity or add valuable dimension to existing programs,” said Jason Smolanoff, Senior Managing Director and Global Cyber Risk Practice Leader for Kroll, a division of Duff & Phelps.
“By automating the enrollment of new or renewing policyholders in sophisticated threat intelligence services, we have created a win-win proposition where carriers are taking a simple initiative to reduce overall risk in their portfolios. Simultaneously, insureds benefit from a greater awareness of their risks and best practices for strategic response. Kroll’s ability to scale our services to the largest of portfolios, along with our global capabilities, ensures the highest level of service to carriers and insureds alike.”
“Helping companies build strong cyber security frameworks that promote defense and resilience is a core vision that NetDiligence shares with Kroll and the cornerstone of this new partnership,” says Mark Greisiger, President of NetDiligence. “We anticipate that by helping insureds become aware of their unknown or unanticipated risks through Kroll’s CyberDetectER DarkWeb, they will also engage more with the wealth of resources and guidance carriers have made available to them on NetDiligence’s eRiskHub, ultimately improving their overall cyber readiness.”
