Cyber liability policyholders get complimentary access to Paladin Shield, a seamless cybercrime prevention suite

CHICAGO, October 26, 2021 (Newswire.com) – BCS Insurance Company (BCS), Risk Placement Services (RPS), and Paladin Cyber announce today an initiative to broaden BCS’s cyber liability product by providing small business policyholders with a market-leading cybersecurity suite to help protect and mitigate cyber risks.

Small businesses that purchase BCS cyber liability insurance coverage, administered by RPS exclusively through www.RPSSmallBusiness.com, will gain complimentary access to Paladin Cyber’s Paladin ShieldTM, a powerful cyber protection suite that offers continuous vulnerability monitoring and a suite of defense and training tools for teams, alongside insurance coverage to help protect them from the high costs and reputational damage of a privacy breach or other cyber-related incident.

The initiative represents an evolution of the cyber insurance industry. BCS gives its insureds access to Paladin’s powerful cyber protection suite to protect them and help prevent cyber incidents.

“BCS, along with our administrator, RPS, has been at the forefront of the cyber liability insurance industry, and we’ve watched the industry change dramatically in the last few years,” said Timothy LeMarbre, vice president, cyber and property & casualty underwriting, BCS Financial. “We recognize the need to broaden the services available to our insureds and are excited to partner with Paladin to provide easy-to-use tools to help new and renewing policyholders protect themselves even further.”

Paladin Shield helps organizations avoid ransomware and other cyber incidents by providing protections that fortify entry points used by cybercriminals, actionable risk insights, and automated security awareness training that has been shown to reduce a team’s phishing susceptibility by 64%. The suite, which will be available at no cost to new and existing policyholders, is valued at nearly $500 per month.

“BCS offers top-notch coverage that helps organizations respond to and recover from cyber incidents like ransomware,” said Xing Xin, co-founder and chief executive officer of Paladin Cyber. “Our unified solution empowers organizations to transform their risk profile and avoid these incidents with easy-to-use AI-powered protections.”

“The data shows that improved cybersecurity fundamentals can stop ransomware; and helping to mitigate risks should be an industry standard,” said Steve Robinson, national cyber practice leader, RPS. “By engaging Paladin, the BCS cyber insurance policy, available through RPS, is able to deliver an easy-to-use solution to its policyholders.”

BCS is the sixth largest writer of admitted cyber products in the U.S. per A.M. Best.
