Toronto, ON (Apr. 15, 2021) – In May 2020, Coalition launched its offering in Canada, providing proactive cybersecurity products and services and best-in-class cyber and technology error & omissions insurance to help keep businesses safe. In addition to Incident Response, Coalition offers a full range of free cyber security tools and services to support customers throughout the entire lifecycle of their risk exposure — before, during, and after an incident. These tools include real-time threat intelligence, automated security alerts, and pre-breach security services. Coalition is able to easily map their policyholders’ attack surface, monitor risk exposures in real-time, and fix vulnerabilities so that they can stay one step ahead of their adversaries.
As a result of its real-time threat intelligence, automated security alerts, and pre-breach security services, Coalition has handled 45 percent of reported events without filing a claim and avoiding any expense to the insured. Coalition’s Incident Response and Claims teams have also recovered 84 percent of all funds lost by policyholders in social engineering events.
Coalition offers a $0 retention as part of its policy for its insureds in Canada that use Coalition’s in-house Incident Response services. For small to midsize businesses facing a cyber claim, this policy enhancement provides immediate access to Coalition’s dedicated Incident Response team, with no out-of-pocket retention expense for security and forensics services.
To best serve Canada-based policyholders, Coalition hired cyber investigations leader Shelley Ma, based in Toronto, to lead the expansion of Coalition Incident Response in Canada. An EnCE-certified examiner, Ma previously held leadership roles at Arete Incident Response and Kivu Consulting. She specializes in network intrusion investigations, complex breach investigations, computer forensics and incident response. Since 2014, she has analyzed, responded to and investigated over 600 cases, and has received numerous recognitions for her work.
Ma leads a team of cybersecurity experts throughout Canada that bring experience working with government agencies, leading incident response firms and corporate security teams. This team is available to Coalition’s Canada-based policyholders at no cost and has the authority and expertise to provide immediate assistance. With an average response time of under five minutes, Coalition Incident Response drastically reduces the costs and potential time lag for organizations that experience an attack.
