Cyber Catalyst by Marsh℠, launched earlier this year, convened leading cyber insurers Allianz; AXIS; AXA XL, a division of AXA; Beazley; CFC; Munich Re; Sompo International; and Zurich North America to identify products and services they consider effective in reducing cyber risk.

Ultimately, 17 solutions were selected for the Cyber Catalyst designation:

“Cyber Catalyst is a ground-breaking approach to help organizations make well-informed decisions in the complex $125 billion cybersecurity marketplace,” said Tom Reagan, US Cyber Practice Leader, Marsh. “This year’s class of 17 Cyber Catalyst designated solutions leverages the experience and insights of the insurance industry to broaden the discussion around best practices and drive improved cyber risk management outcomes.”

Organizations that adopt Cyber Catalyst-designated solutions may be considered for enhanced terms and conditions on individually negotiated cyber insurance policies with participating insurers. Marsh has worked with each participating insurer to establish endorsement wordings that reflect the coverage enhancements that those insurers might offer to Marsh clients that adopt one or more Cyber Catalyst-designated solution.
