Marsh, an insurance broker and risk advisor, has expanded its existing $100m Cyber ECHO facility by an additional layer of $25m.

Cyber ECHO, which is available to Marsh clients worldwide, now provides up to $125m of excess cyber insurance cover and is said to be the largest facility of its type on the market.

Underwritten by Lloyd’s of London insurers, Cyber ECHO provides Marsh clients worldwide with substantial capacity to manage complex cyber and technology risks across any territory where Lloyd’s is licensed.

The expansion of Cyber ECHO ensures clients have access to an efficient placement process and a streamlined claims mechanism.

The additional $25m layer retains the same benefits as the existing Cyber ECHO structure, including the option for clients to reinstate cover at pre-agreed rates after a loss that diminishes their limits.

Marsh UK Cyber Placement leader Serena France-Hayhurst said: “As the severity, frequency and financial impact of cyber threats continues to grow, organisations are seeking the broadest coverage options beyond what is available in the open market.
