Threatinformer is another recent graduate of the London Cyber incubator Cylon, part of the fourth cohort. (Other alumni from the evening included DynaRisk and Hook). The company was born out of the frustrations of the underwriters that CEO Ryan Jones had seen in his time working with KPMG.  Industry consultants gave a good service, but could be inconsistent and expensive. The automated tools available were not targeted at insurers and so tended to provide too much unstructured information, or reduce the issue down to single cyber risk scores, so broad as not to be useful. Threatinformer is developing an automated cyber risk platform specifically for all three main players in insurance: brokers, insurers and reinsurers. Jones described three key challenges for brokers looking to place cyber risk that can be helped by Threatinformer.
