Cybersecurity exposure scan

CyberProfiler gives you a unique 'Attacker's Eye View'™ of your business

Understand your organisation's cybersecurity exposure from an attacker’s perspective. A cyber assessment framework powered by first hand cyber-attack response insights.

Supporting insurers and brokers in understanding the risk across their books, whilst providing the information they need to help their customers proactively improve security, mitigate risks, eliminate vulnerabilities, and meet compliance standards. 

Surveil

Make your business difficult to surveil

Our service includes active scanning for vulnerable technologies, configurations, user accounts, registered domains, third party links, budgetary spend, and other sensitive details.

Hard cyber target

Be the hard target

Poorly configured networks and outdated services make you an easy target.
As with traditional crime, if opportunists find profiling hard, they will move on to softer targets. Our monthly review allows you to identify what your online services reveal to cyber criminals.

Defend from cyber attack

Actively defend your organisation

With our monthly assessment, you can detect vulnerabilities as they happen, rather than after an attacker has discovered them.
We summarise our findings and if needed, we can consult your business on remediation. 

 
QBE Storm Guidance insurance partner
