Secured2 announces first Cyber Warranty to Indemnify Users against Data Breaches

Minneapolis & Washington D.C. — Secured2 today announced an industry-first Cyber Warranty Program that combines leading-edge security with data-breach indemnification. The warranty program, which provides up to $5 million in indemnification benefits, was designed and is offered by a unique partnership that includes Secured2; Risk Cooperative, a specialized risk advisory firm and Lloyds of London coverholder for cyber insurance; and Ridge Global a specialized risk-advisory firm founded by Tom Ridge, the first U.S. Secretary for Homeland Security.

“To solve the ‘risk’ problem associated with today’s cloud solutions the innovative approach we are taking takes risk off the table by providing a warranty against a data breach and providing reassurance by providing a level of security that can be indemnified. Being the first solution in the world that can both secure and indemnify users against a data breach changes the game entirely,” said, Daren Klum CEO of Secured2.
