Beecher Carlson upgrades cyber risk tool

Beecher Carlson Insurance Services has teamed up with SecurityScorecard to enhance its cyber risk evaluation and monitoring tool, CyberSelect.

The partnership with SecurityScorecard takes into consideration employee security awareness and adds capabilities for network health; end-point security; public data leakage; insecure domain name system configurations or vulnerabilities; website and content management system health; hacker chatter; patching cadence; suspicious or malicious activity within a network; and credentials at risk.

According to Beecher Carlson, the enhancement of its cyber risk assessment tools will help clients to “identify security issues and take precautions against ecosystem breaches”.

Chris Keegan, Beecher Carlson’s national cyber practice leader, commented: "As we look to further assist our clients in evaluating and mitigating risk, we wanted to team with a vendor that can accurately assess external risks that many companies have difficulty getting their arms around.”

“We are excited to offer SecurityScorecard’s unique product to improve our clients’ understanding of their cyber risk profiles.”
