Coverage + Appetite

Automated Quoting + Individual Account Underwriting

The art of underwriting complex risk should never lose its human touch. While much of our underwriting process is automated through risk models built by our Data Science team, we understand that certain cases require expert review. Our Underwriting Team has decades of experience in Cyber, Cargo, and Tech E&O, so no matter the size or distinctiveness of the business, you can be sure the quote you’re getting has been developed with care.

Smart Cyber Insurance Claims

Real-time access to information, 24/7. Push-button reporting. Advanced breach analysis from our data science team. Welcome to a smarter claims experience.

Data drives Corvus – and that includes the claims experience. With our digital platform, the CrowBar, brokers can access claims 24/7 and generate claims reports at the press of a button. Sending updates to a client is just another click away.

The claims experience doesn’t stop there. When a Smart Cyber Insurance claim occurs, Corvus works closely with our risk-taking partner Hudson Insurance Group. The U.S.-based claims team at Hudson has over 15 years of experience in handling Cyber, Media and Tech E&O claims. Claims are initiated through the breach coach, available 24/7.

While we work with the claims team on immediate response, our Data Science team runs a Corvus scan on the state of your IT Security at points in the past: one week and one month before the claim. The Corvus team advises the policyholder on how to improve IT security,  providing specific recommendations directly related to the claim. 

And before a claim ever occurs, we have the best-in-breed resources, like table-top exercises, breach coaches, digital forensics, crisis management and much more. These are available in our Risk Management Portal, part of the CrowBar digital platform and available at no extra cost for all policyholders.

Smart Cargo + Cyber Claims Handling

Real-time access to information, 24/7. Push-button reporting. Advanced loss analysis from our data science team. Welcome to a smarter claims experience.

Data drives Corvus – and that includes the claims experience. With our digital platform, the CrowBar, brokers can access claims 24/7 and generate claims reports at the press of a button. Sending updates to a client is just another click away.

We work closely with our risk-taking partner, Skyward Specialty Insurance, on handling cargo claims. When a Smart Cargo + Cyber claim occurs, we can look at the shipment data of the event and track it to the minute. With that information, we can help determine what party in the logistics chain was responsible for the loss. If that is a party other than the policyholder, we are informed and effective at subrogating (making the other entity pay) the claim. That improves the loss record of our insureds.
