NEW YORK--17 Oct--PRNewswire/InfoQuest

CyberScout is excited to announce a new partnership with Lansforsakringar, a group of customer-owned insurance companies that provides personal, commercial, pet and life insurance, as well as bank, life and pensions services throughout Sweden.

Established in 1843, Lansforsakringar is the largest non-life mutual insurer in Sweden, with a market share exceeding 30 percent. The group is comprised of 23 companies that work in cooperation with each other to provide top-tier services in everything from insurance to banking, always with a strong focus on customer service.

The partnership will mark the launch of Lansforsakringar's new small medium enterprise (SME) cyber insurance product. The partnership will provide services to their commercial lines policy for small- and medium-sized businesses, with plans to introduce services gradually beginning September 1, 2018, with full deployment over the following six months.

CyberScout's robust breach education and response services will be added to Lansforsakringar's offerings, including a 24/7 help line connecting customers to cyber resolution experts in the Swedish language. CyberScout on-demand support helps to minimize the consequences of a breach, and the CyberScout breach team will work closely with the Lansforsakringar claims team to ensure a seamless customer claims journey.

The announcement of this partnership marks Lansforsakringar's entry into cyber insurance, which is timely now that the GDPR is in place. Lansforsakringar is one of the most trusted brands in Sweden largely because they have always empowered the customer in the decision-making process. With its customer-centric focus, CyberScout is a perfect partner for this new product offering.

"We are delighted to be partnering with Lansforsakringar to deliver this brand-new product for the Swedish market," said CyberScout's Divisional Director of Global Markets, Tom Spier. "LF have looked at the clear risks to small businesses post-GDPR and reacted to these by saying that cyber cover is so important that they will endorse it to every SME policy. CyberScout's global expansion means that we have been first into many markets around the world and this initiative represents a continuation of this."

"We are very happy for the partnership with CyberScout," said Maria Munkby, Head of the Liability department at Lansforsakringar Sak. "CyberScout´s competence and their experience in the field combined with the fact that they are easy to work with made them an excellent choice for us to partner with. Since we both have a strong customer focus they were also willing to provide services to customers in Swedish which was important for us."
