These reports will deliver actionable insights for Probitas’ underwriting team, aiding them in risk selection and guiding existing and potential insureds to improve cyber resilience. 

Furthermore, the collaboration includes the adoption of KYND’s new Exposure Management solution, which offers precise insights into loss drivers and risk accumulation within Probitas’ portfolio, including scenarios of war and state-sponsored cyber events.  

The solution’s granularity and customisation capabilities are also expected to enhance Probitas’ internal cyber models. 

This partnership introduces a new dimension to Probitas’ capabilities, which is particularly significant given the current geopolitical climate and market demands.  

It ensures that Probitas has a comprehensive understanding of potential risks and impacts, fortifying its position in the cyber insurance market. 

Probitas 1492Cyber & Technology head Richard Taylor said: “KYND’s insurance focus and unrivalled approach to cyber risk management, coupled with the flexibility and transparency provided by its innovative deterministic cyber catastrophe modelling, made partnering with them an easy decision to further enhance our underwriting and portfolio risk management capabilities as well as help inform capacity decisions.”  

Recently, KYND secured an investment from its existing investor BGF and data analytics and insurtech company Verisk to develop cyber risk technology.
