RISK MANAGEMENT, INSURANCE TECHNOLOGY
Businesswire | April 11, 2023
Coalition, the world's first Active Insurance provider designed to prevent digital risk before it strikes, today introduced CoalitionAI™, a new initiative to deploy generative AI and large language models to help brokers and businesses protect themselves from cyber risk. U.S.-based brokers and businesses can now access new AI-powered education and chat features, including:
CoalitionAI Broker Copilot: Appointed brokers in the U.S. now have access to the Broker Copilot, a generative AI chatbot embedded into the Coalition broker dashboard that can answer questions about cybersecurity best practices, cyber policy coverage options, and more. The Broker Copilot is trained on publicly-available documents and resources published by Coalition for broker inquiries and education.
CoalitionAI Security Copilot: Businesses using Coalition Control™ – Coalition’s cyber risk assessment and monitoring platform – can now seek and gain details on cyber security vulnerabilities, better understand coverage contingencies, and learn about ways to resolve cyber security issues using the new Security Copilot.
“This new wave of generative AI will unequivocally change the insurance industry and transform the broker experience,” said Joshua Motta, Chief Executive Officer and co-founder at Coalition. “Our Broker Copilot and Security Copilot are just the beginning. Over time the entire Active Insurance experience – from risk selection to active security protection to active response – will all benefit from generative AI that can help reduce the impact of cyber risk.”
The CoalitionAI features released today use a combination of proprietary technology, large language modeling, and generative pre-trained transformers. Coalition plans to introduce additional AI capabilities to support its Active Insurance offerings, including Active Risk Assessment, Active Protection, and Active Response. In the coming months, Coalition brokers and Coalition Control users will gain access to additional AI-driven tools that will strengthen the quoting, underwriting, and incident response experiences.
“AI is already reshaping the cyber risk landscape,” said Tiago Henriques, Coalition’s Vice President of Security Research. “While we are applying our AI expertise to improve the broker and customer experience, we are also focused on keeping up with emerging AI-related vulnerabilities. Part of our commitment to protecting the unprotected is helping our policyholders both understand the risks and reap the benefits of new technologies.”
