What Are Cowbell Factors?
Every Cowbell Factor is a rating index that contributes to the evaluation of your organisation’s cyber risk and, therefore, appropriate insurance coverage. The Cowbell Cyber platform guides you to select an insurance policy to match your insurable security threats. Unlike traditional methods, Cowbell Factors apply continuous observation to map exposure and impact.
Measures the strength of the organisation’s network infrastructure and whether security best practices are deployed – encryption, secure protocols, patching frequency. This factor also checks for vulnerabilities, malware, and misconfigurations.
Measures the strength of an organisation’s cloud security based on footprint on commonly used public clouds (AWS, Azure, GCP, etc), security configuration, and alignment to security best practices.
Measures endpoint preparedness (servers, mobile devices, IoT endpoints) towards cyberattacks. This factor incorporates the number of endpoints as well as the level of security hygiene applied to them.
Measures an organisation’s exposure to the darknet, taking into account the type and volume of data exposed and its value for criminal activity (examples: stolen credentials, PII).
Tracks risk markers related to the compromise of emails that commonly lead to nefarious activities such as fraudulent funds transfers.
Measures an organisation’s potential exposure to extortion-related attacks such as ransomware.
Measures an organisation’s level of compliance to security standards such as CIS (Center of Internet Security) benchmarks, NIST CSF (Cyber Security Framework), CSC-20 (Critical Security Controls), HIPAA, PCI, EU GDPR, and CCPA.
Measures an organisation’s susceptibility to software supply chain incidents. This factor is compiled from technographic and firmographic data, web scraping information, and public vulnerability repositories.
