TOLEDO, Ohio, July 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Hylant Group, one of the largest privately owned insurance brokerage firms in the nation, has launched a network security and data breach portal to help its clients manage risk in this ever-changing environment of cyber attacks and data theft. Today's sophisticated and highly networked business environments are often porous, exposing organizations to new and constantly changing "e-Risk" threats and liability.
Trends for losses are increasing in both frequency and severity, so it is critical for upper level management to have an outlet to respond quickly and appropriately to a data loss or financially crippling breach of network security. Hylant's Executive Risk and Medical Risk Practices have found that many organizations do not have a plan or even a clear understanding of what to do in the event of a data breach. Hylant has enlisted the services of NetDiligence, a leading provider of cyber security assurance services, to develop the interactive portal - eRisk Hub. The site offers news on recent data breaches, a learning center filled with white papers and best practices, a severity modeling calculator to assist in limits benchmarking, and most importantly, an assembly of experienced providers of cyber risk management and breach recovery services. These firms specialize in disaster recovery, computer forensics, cyber risk assessments, regulatory compliance, records management, network design and public relations.
As experts in providing insurance and support services for cyber and privacy related risks, several Hylant associates maintain The Certified Identity Theft and Risk Management Specialist (CITRMS) certification to assist in providing the highest level of advice and consultation to clients. These offerings and the expertise of Hylant's Executive Risk and Medical Risk associates assist our clients in identifying the unique exposures related to a compromising network security breach. Once identified, our experts will create customized insurance solutions to assist in managing risk and minimizing the potential for significant financial loss.
