American International Group announced new partnerships with K2 Intelligence, BitSight Technologies, RSA, and Axio Global to expand the risk mitigation and prevention services it offers to cyber insurance clients. Services from these partners complement AIG's CyberEdge risk management and insurance product, which helps clients manage the expanding threat of cybersecurity attacks and failures. Through these partnerships, AIG CyberEdge policyholders can access pre-breach threat intelligence, governance tools, and the latest best practices to help gain a holistic understanding of their cybersecurity exposure, including the responsiveness of their insurance program to a cyber attack. AIG is making the new services available to its CyberEdge clients which include: Customized threat intelligence from K2 Intelligence; BitSight Security Ratings by BitSight Technologies; Cybersecurity maturity assessment by RSA; and Consultation with Axio Global. K2 Intelligence uses sophisticated intelligence gathering techniques and investigative tools to collect and analyze chatter about an organization from the deep web and dark net, hidden areas of the Internet where cyber criminals are known to conduct business. Companies can leverage K2 Intelligence's proprietary tools and best-of-breed tradecraft to perform due diligence when engaging in a merger or acquisition, or to manage its overall cyber risk. BitSight analyzes externally observable data such as botnets, malware, and spam, to continually rate a company's cybersecurity posture. When a company's or a vendor's security rating changes, it may be a signal that their systems have been compromised. The security division of EMC and developer of RSA Archer, a governance, risk, and compliance (GRC) solution, RSA leverages the NIST Cybersecurity Framework to help companies identify key functional areas of improvement to achieve an improved cybersecurity risk posture. Through an approach that integrates exposure quantification, program evaluation, benchmarking, and the deployment of appropriate insurance coverage, Axio's work addresses the full range of potential cyber losses, including physical damage, bodily injury, environmental damage, and other advanced forms of loss. AIG's qualified CyberEdge clients also continue to have access to the existing services of RiskAnalytics and IBM. RiskAnalytics provides clients with the active detection, intelligence, and shunning of IP addresses that are known cyber threats. RiskAnalytics also helps companies manage the human, legal and financial elements of risk, through training, policy and education.
