XL Catlin’s North American Cyber & Technology insurance business is adding additional computer forensic and legal resources to its network of breach response specialists. These new additions will better help clients respond to breaches quickly and cost effectively.
The insurer’s newest partners include Mandiant, a FireEye company that will provide computer forensics services, as well as Hunton & Williams LLP, Venable LLP, Troutman Sanders LLP, Alston & Bird, and Davis Wright Tremaine LLP, who will provide additional legal resources.
According to John Coletti, Chief Underwriting Officer of XL Catlin’s North America Cyber & Technology unit, “a lack of preparedness during a cyber-attack not only runs up associated costs but also threatens a company’s reputation and customer trust. When an attack occurs and information is compromised, a timely and effective response is critical. Knowing where to go for the right help is equally critical.”
Coletti said that XL Catlin continues to “build alliances with market-leading breach response providers to give our clients access to the most comprehensive cyber response network available in our industry. Our Network gives our cyber insurance clients more choices and greater flexibility, allowing them to choose expertise that best suits their needs.”
