CSC’s Cybersecurity Solutions for Insurers
Insurers Face New Cyber Threats
Today’s agents and customers are savvier and more demanding than ever before. They want instant access to their information over the Web and their mobile devices. They expect to complete transactions on the spot by connecting to an insurer’s back-end systems.
As a result, a growing number of companies are integrating their existing systems and business processes with Web portals, third-party vendors, cloud-based applications and mobile technologies – not fully aware of the cyber threats that await them.
“By opening up data to external channels, insurers are exposing customer records and sensitive company information to an unprecedented level of threats in cyberspace,” said Bryant G. Tow, director of Commercial Cybersecurity, CSC. “And many insurers that have already been infiltrated don’t even know it.”
Needed: Holistic Approach
Now that data is no longer contained within the perimeter, protecting the perimeter will no longer suffice. Insurers need a new, proactive strategy that embeds information security into the heart of their global business processes and operations, and secures company data wherever it may reside.
“We bring a holistic approach to identity management, compliance and business continuity/disaster recovery, as well as a full range of cybersecurity services that extend from the development of corporate and mission strategy down to the very bits and bytes that make up the billions of threats our global security centers monitor daily,” Tow said.
“We offer extensive experience designing, managing and securing the mission-critical data of the world’s leading insurers,” he added. “We intimately understand the broad threats insurers face and the steps they must take to eliminate them.”
