CYGNVS™ LAUNCHES FIRST-EVER GUIDED PLATFORM FOR CYBER CRISIS PREPAREDNESS AND RESPONSE MANAGEMENT

With 1000 clients already on the platform, CYGNVS™ to scale operations backed by $55M Series A funding

CYGNVS Inc. today emerged from stealth backed by $55 million in series A funding and unveiled its pioneering guided cyber crisis platform purpose-built to empower organizations to stay Connected, Confident, in Control and Compliant as they prepare for and respond to any cyber crisis.

“No matter how much is spent on cybersecurity, cyber crises are inevitable and every organization in the world needs to prepare and plan for that eventuality,” said Marc Goodman, global security advisor and The New York Times bestselling author of “Future Crimes.” “Successful response is surprisingly complex, and most victims fail because they try to cobble together their response at that time. Being prepared and having a practiced plan is critical to any organization’s cyber resilience."

When a cyber crisis does occur, preparation and practice can make a big difference. From data in The Cost of Data Breach Report 2022, organizations that are better prepared and practiced save an average of $1.38 million in direct costs.

CYGNVS (an acronym of CYber GuidaNce Virtual Space) empowers organizations to reduce their risk before a cyber crisis through preparation and practice and then reduce cost and impact of a cyber crisis with a guided, accelerated response.

Partnering With Insurance

Just as the insurance industry helped drive adoption of building sprinkler systems, which greatly reduced fire risk, the cyber insurance industry has deep expertise in cyber crisis preparation and response.

CYGNVS has partnered with AIG, a leading worldwide provider of cyber insurance. After responding to thousands of cyber breaches, AIG identified various critical challenges to optimize breach response, such as a client’s visibility into the entire end-to-end response process, secure post-event communications, and working effectively and consistently with external response providers including breach counsel and forensic consultants. AIG helped CYGNVS develop the requirements by providing guidance based on AIG’s experience, expertise and thought leadership in cyber claim resolutions, enabling CYGNVS to develop a robust platform to address the problems of organizations worldwide.

Today, CYGNVS insurance customers together represent half the cyber insurance market and CYGNVS is being rolled out to clients by leading insurers and brokers complementing their cyber insurance policies.

Back To Business, Faster

With CYGNVS, organizations can quickly assemble everyone contributing to the cyber crisis response in a safe, secure environment out of band from internal channels. The platform converts static breach response plans into interactive and actionable processes and checklists. Internal teams and outside experts can be assigned roles and responsibilities, tasks are communicated in a digestible fashion and plans and workstreams can be easily and quickly updated as people, assets, regulations and threats change.

“CYGNVS was founded with the mission of making the world’s organizations lower their cyber risk by addressing the critical areas of preparation and response. We purpose-built CYGNVS as a guided cyber crisis platform to empower organizations to be Connected, Confident, in Control and Compliant before, during, and after a cyber crisis,” said Arvind Parthasarathi, Founder and CEO of CYGNVS.
