Cowbell Cyberv announced Cowbell Connect, its partner program which arms policyholders with comprehensive, closed-loop risk management. Cowbell Connect combines a wealth of expertise and resources from a variety of partners to address one of today’s biggest threats to businesses: cyber incidents.
Partnerships have always been integral to Cowbell’s ability to rapidly build innovative cyber insurance programs that close the insurability gap for policyholders and bring speed, simplicity and flexibility to policyholders and insurance distribution. Cowbell Connect reinforces Cowbell’s closed-loop approach to cyber risk management by bundling cyber coverage with risk assessment, quantification, and mitigation as well as pre- and post-breach services.
