We live in a day and age where cyber breaches and hacks are becoming more and more a common occurrence. This is unfortunate; it is thus imperative that the various industries take steps to help protect the security and vital information of those vulnerable to such breaches.
Chubb has introduced a new app in both the Canadian and US markets that alerts customers immediately whenever such a breach occurs. In the event of a cyber incident the app will notify users and also give them access to a live cyber response specialist.
Incident response is everything in this business. People don’t want to be left in the dark—they want to know they are protected and their data is safe. Customers can actually create a profile in advance so that this way upon such an incident occurring response time is even faster and they aren’t frantically searching for a claim or report.
The app was put in place in order to streamline a cyber attack response. From coordinating with a live specialist to investigating the overall impact of the event to managing legal and/or regulatory issues the app is allowing companies and individuals a more comprehensive understanding of the situation as it unfolds.
