Shepherd Insurance Launches Cyber JumpStart Portal to Help Organizations Reduce Cyber Risk

May 17, 2023

From day one, Shepherd Insurance has been committed to helping our clients manage their risk within every facet of business operations. As cyber incidents and threats continue to evolve, we recognized the need to provide more resources for our clients to further manage that risk. With that, we are pleased to announce the launch of the Cyber JumpStart portal in partnership with Arctic Wolf.

Shepherd Insurance clients are now able to unlock access to Cyber JumpStart, a secure portal to identify security gaps, improve security posture, and ultimately pursue insurance terms that best suit their organizations.

Backed by the first-hand insight and threat intelligence of the Arctic Wolf Incident Response team, Cyber JumpStart provides organizations visibility to their cyber risk with actionable methods to improve their security posture.

Key benefits of the Cyber JumpStart portal include:

  • Incident Response Plan Builder – Effectively prepare for a cyber emergency with a focused module developed by the Arctic Wolf Incident Response team based on their experience responding to thousands of cyber insurance claims with organizations of all sizes.
  • JumpStart Threat Scanner – Consistently scan your network for the known vulnerabilities that lead to the most cyber insurance claims.
  • Security Project Guides – Dive into actionable information about the most common cyber insurance control requirements to remediate, with direct access to technical resources if you need additional guidance.
  • Risk Control Implementation – Seamlessly connect with a network of over 1,200 Arctic Wolf technology partners for any additional assistance in implementing security controls. 

“Over the past several years, we’ve seen cyber threats and the severity of incidents morph rapidly, which has led the cyber insurance landscape to follow suit,” Briggs Orsbon, Executive Partner | President of Commercial Lines, explained. “Cyber insurance policies and applications are more rigorous, and insureds need to demonstrate a high degree of cyber risk control in order to secure favorable terms.”

Briggs continued, “With Cyber JumpStart, our clients can now see where their organization is vulnerable and remediate threats before crisis strikes. By harnessing this insight from the Arctic Wolf team, our clients can reduce their risk of attack while also improving their posture to secure their cyber insurance policies.”
