How can we help
A cyber breach isn’t always a disaster. Mishandling it is.
Helping clients manage cyber incidents successfully
Our inhouse Cyber Services specialists assist our clients at every stage of incident investigation and breach response to minimise threats and resolve the incident.
They coordinate the carefully vetted forensics experts and specialized lawyers to help establish what’s been compromised; assess responsibility; and notify those individuals affected. Credit or identity monitoring for customers and PR advice is also available to help safeguard reputation.

We also, of course, indemnify losses from lawsuits or regulatory actions, the risk of which may be reduced by a well-coordinated breach response but can never be completely eliminated.
Our claims team has been at the forefront of defending clients in the developing and evolving legal arena of privacy class actions and regulatory investigations arising from cyber breaches.
As cyber pioneers, we invented this approach. We do more of it than anybody else. To date we have managed thousands of breaches swiftly and successfully.
Pre-breach and risk management
Preparing for and preventing cyber incidents have become inseparable from insuring a cyber loss.
As cyber pioneers with years of experience, our range of pre-breach support services and proactive risk management guidance enables clients to improve their controls and cyber security requirements to mitigate risks before an incident occurs.
Our cyber clients get exclusive access to our risk management portal, beazleybreachsolutions.com, packed with resources for incident response planning, employee training, compliance, and security best practices.
Our Cyber Services team also coordinates a variety of pre-breach services such as onboarding calls, incident response plan review, live webinars and workshops so our clients can improve the robustness of their cybersecurity.
Smaller organizations are targeted as frequently as major corporations, but often lack access to the internal expertise and resources that large businesses can draw upon. Lodestone Security LLC, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Beazley plc, provides cybersecurity consulting services tailored to enhance our clients’ cyber defences with strategic and tactical services.

Examples or Scenarios
A school district was hit with ransomware and two of its servers were completely encrypted. Critical documents were rendered inaccessible. BBR Services coordinated an engagement with forensics and legal counsel. Forensics was able to quickly identify the type of ransomware and determine its known capabilities. They were also able to find the decryption key for this particular strain of malware and use it to successfully restore all of the district's files.
A manufacturer employee's active directory account was compromised. The hacker used the employee's mailbox to send emails requesting a money transfer to some outside account. BBR Services arranged for the manufacturer to work with panel counsel and forensic firm. The forensic firm determined that no personally identifiable information had been compromised and the law firm determined the manufacturer had no obligation to notify.
