Preventable claims

Welcome to our latest Cyber Services Snapshot – where we explore the latest cyber trends, our claims data and what it all means for your cyber security.

Many people don’t realise that it is possible to improve your organisation’s cyber security controls simply by fine-tuning the ways that you use the resources you already have.

Quite a few popular tools and platforms include built-in cyber security features at no additional cost, and providers constantly update and enhance these features to keep pace with the latest cyber threats.

Yet because many of these features are so seamlessly embedded into larger products, and because in most cases the features are not enabled by default, they are all too often forgotten or overlooked. This becomes a lost opportunity for an organisation to improve its cyber security.

Every day, our Cyber Services team sees incidents that could have been avoided if organisations had only taken action to fully utilise the security measures they’ve already paid for.

Read on to learn more about the often underused and underestimated features that every organisation would be well-advised to leverage.
