Cowbell Cyber, a startup pioneering Artificial Intelligence (AI)-powered cyber insurance for small to mid-sized businesses (SMBs), announced the availability of Cowbell Prime 100, its standalone cyber insurance product, in the State of California. Cowbell’s innovative cyber insurance coverage is now available for California SMBs, with a coverage limit up to $5M.
California alone represents over 4M small businesses, employing 7.1M of the State’s private workforce, which means millions of businesses can benefit from cyber insurance coverage. However, Advisen’s 2019 Cyber Insurance: The Market’s View states “not understanding exposures” (73%), “not understanding coverage” (63%) and “cost” (46%) remain the top three identified obstacles to writing and issuing cyber insurance.
“California is one of the largest markets for small business cyber insurance but these businesses do not have the time, resources or desire to sift through complicated cyber insurance coverages,” said Trent Cooksley, co-founder and COO at Cowbell Cyber. “Now that Cowbell Cyber is admitted in California, we can help the State’s millions of small businesses overcome this challenge and deliver them a tailored, standalone coverage within 5 minutes, making cyber insurance easy for all involved.”
Cowbell Prime 100 delivers standalone first and third-party coverages to businesses up to $100M in revenue with a limit up to $5M and deductible as low as $1,000. Coverages include Security Breach Expense, Security Breach Liability, Cyber Extortion, Business Income, amongst others, and the recently added Social Engineering coverage. Coverages can be tailored to every business’ unique needs and risk appetite making cyber insurance a relevant and effective financial loss mitigation approach for cyberattacks. Additionally, Cowbell added to Prime 100 four new marquee endorsements – Ransom payments, Hardware replacement costs, Post breach remediation expenses and Telecommunications fraud.
