Cowbell is an enterprise cyber risk observability and insurance provider. Our mission is to expedite and simplify the process of obtaining cyber insurance by mapping insurable threats to the risk exposures. We are building standalone, individualized and expedited cyber coverage.

The correlated nature of security breach risks, the imperfect ability to prove loss from a breach to an insurer and the inability of insurers and external agents to observe firm’s self-protection efforts have posed significant challenges to cybersecurity risk management. If self-protection of a firm is observable to an insurer so that it can design a contract that is contingent on the self-protection level, then self-protection and insurance behave as complements. Cowbell brings a unique approach to risk selection and pricing using deep learning techniques.
