Protecting agency data is now Job #1 with regulatory, insurer and consumer demands to mitigate rising cybercrime. Our exclusive, low-cost cyber risk assessment is designed specifically for independent insurance agencies. Even better, the assessment delivers a one-two punch that identifies an agency’s own unique risks and how to mitigate them plus critical information for clients on the need for cyber insurance coverage. Deliverables include an analysis of an agency’s vendor user agreements, direct and vendor breaches and detailed mitigation recommendations in an easily understood format.

Consumers and businesses change their communications habits based on convenience – phone tag and email overload are fueling a transition to web messaging now dominant across all age groups. Unlike live chat, which relies on a one-and-done text message model – messaging is more secure and conversational, is used ten times more often than voice calls and gives agencies a 24/7 capability without adding staff. Messaging can be integrated into CRMs and is automatically archived and viewable. Our system is easy to master in a week or two, a big plus in employee satisfaction, and is HITRUST-Certified and the only one available in which an agency owns and controls its data.
Most agencies need help from time to time on creating articles, blogs, and social media posts to promote its expertise and community connections. Our staff knows insurance and can take your ideas and transform them into highly readable, engaging content quickly and at reasonable cost. All content is original and can be priced on an as-needed or continual basis plans based on your budget.

The cyber assessment is well worth the cost! Much needed review of our IT vendor’s exposure we share and our own internal and external measures to avoid cyber intrusion! If you have not done a third party evaluation of your cyber defense mechanisms, do this before you are hacked! A small expenditure today can save you thousands on getting your data and reputation back should someone in your Agency “click” on the wrong link!
Andrew C. HarrisCEO, Liberty Insurance Associates, Inc.
The Wetzel Cyber Assessment is excellent. Not only did they review our public network exposure, but also reviewed our technology partners' exposure to loss. Reviewing IT service provider agreements helped us quantify our risk, especially related to indemnity clauses in our agreement that likely would not see coverage under every cyber policy. Not many agents understand the moving parts on cyber, yet as risk experts we are expected to. Tom is the guy who helps us understand our risk so we avoid getting caught in a terrible situation after a breach.
