Cyber Insurance Program Management​

Successfully leveraging cyber insurance is more challenging than ever. A smart cyber risk transfer strategy can mean the difference between a cost-effective policy that delivers the expected claims payout and a costly policy that leaves you responsible for much of the high costs of a data breach.

Successfully managing a program is difficult without an effective software platform to enable visibility, efficiency, and quality. EXTEND can help you find the right platform for your unique needs, use your existing tools, or help you choose one of our partner platforms.
