In managing a data breach, it’s your reputation that’s on the line. It’s smart to have a partner who’s been there. Things happen too quickly; there’s too much to learn. Beazley Breach Response pioneered the concept of data breach insurance that focuses first and foremost on response. Beazley coordinates the IT experts and specialized lawyers to help you establish what’s been compromised; assess your responsibility; and notify those you have to.

A Dedicated Team of Experts
Beazley is unique among insurers in having a dedicated business unit, BBR Services, that focuses exclusively on helping clients manage data breaches successfully. A thicket of state and federal regulations governs how and when customers must be notified after a breach has occurred, and the risk of reputational damage from a mishandled breach is high. The BBR Services team focuses on the coordination of the expert forensic, legal, notification and credit monitoring services that utilities need to satisfy all legal requirements and maintain customer confidence. In addition to coordinating data breach response, BBR Services is responsible for maintaining and developing Beazley’s suite of risk management services, designed to minimize the risk of a data breach occurring.
