CyberCube launches “Broking Manager” a SaaS application designed specifically for insurance brokers

CyberCube | May 12, 2020

  • CyberCube has launched “Broking Manager” – a new software-as-a-service application for insurance brokers.

  • “Broking Manager” facilitates quick and efficient client insight for both generalist and cyber specialist brokers.

  • Broking Manager is the third product in CyberCube’s suite of applications, alongside Portfolio Manager and Account Manager.


Cyber risk analytics specialist CyberCube has launched “Broking Manager” – a new software-as-a-service application designed specifically for insurance brokers.

“Broking Manager” facilitates quick and efficient client insight for both generalist and cyber specialist brokers. The product is built to help brokers quantify, understand, and explain to their clients, the sources and financial impact of cyber risk exposure.

This development recognizes that insurance advisors need to be able to educate prospects and clients while demonstrating an understanding of their needs and exposures. Brokers are expected to align clients’ goals, budgets, and exposure to the appropriate limits and best-fit carrier policies. With cyber risk, this means understanding the types of scenarios that may cause financial loss and the costs that would drive losses. Knowing where a client can increase or cut back on premium dollars while still hitting their coverage goals is imperative to helping them optimize their budget.

Broking Manager empowers brokers to instantly produce a cyber financial loss report on millions of companies, while providing rich information to help brokers articulate their clients’ cyber exposure. It does so by leveraging advanced models that draw on data from a large number of sources including behind the firewall and perimeter scan data, historical incidents and losses, and firmographic data. The product offers a stream-lined approach to generating the financial exposure impact of client-specific security and business practices. Brokers can also leverage the product to educate clients on potential loss classes, recent cyber events, and benchmarking of cyber risks against peers.

Oren Schetrit, CyberCube’s Director of Product, said: “With Broking Manager we set out to tackle the most fundamental question facing brokers today; what coverages and limits do companies need? We’ve had considerable interest from the broking community internationally, so we felt the time was right to build and launch this product.

“Brokers play a vital role in helping clients identify and manage risk. Our goal is to empower them to quantify and explain cyber risk exposure to a broad audience without becoming experts in information security. Broking Manager will promote informed conversations that will ultimately lead to better buying decisions.”


Cyber insurance as a line of business is still in its early stages of growth and there is a clear need for a solution to help companies make informed decisions on what they need to buy. As trusted advisors to companies on their cyber insurance purchase, insurance brokers play a very important role in the ecosystem by connecting insurance buyers with carriers. CyberCube has built a solution to enable the growth of the cyber insurance market and support this important segment in the insurance value chain.

- Ashwin Kashyap, Co-founder of CyberCube and Head of Product and Analytics


Broking Manager is the third product in CyberCube’s suite of applications, alongside Portfolio Manager and Account Manager. Portfolio Manager is used by insurers to stress tests portfolios of cyber risks against dozens of cyber-based scenarios. Account Manager is used during the underwriting process itself to provide underwriting teams with a detailed analysis of cyber risk.

Milliman launches ALM software to help insurers of all sizes meet stochastic valuation requirements

Milliman | November 23, 2022

Milliman, Inc., a premier global consulting and actuarial firm, today announced the release of Milliman Agile ALM. This innovative software package makes asset/liability management (ALM) and stochastic valuation accessible to more insurers, helping them comply with Solvency II, IFRS 17, and other requirements. "The fundamental advantage of Milliman Agile ALM is that it does not require remodeling the entire portfolio of insurance liabilities, Milliman Agile ALM offers an accessible solution that helps insurers satisfy reporting requirements and make business decisions with greater confidence." -Ed Morgan, principal and Head of Strategy and M&A for Milliman's practices in Italy and Central and Eastern Europe Unlike traditional dynamic ALM models, Milliman Agile ALM uses a standalone asset projection model that can be linked to external liability software. Rather than simulating assets interacting with liabilities, the technology runs separate asset and liability models in an iterative process that quickly arrives at a single solution. Our approach is unique because of our method for separating the asset model from the liability model, This separation is highly efficient as it allows us to take advantage of a client's existing liability modeling and focus the validation directly on the ALM modeling and interactions,said Grzegorz Darkiewicz-Moniuszko, senior consultant at Milliman. Using Milliman Agile ALM, insurers can test different investment and product strategies, optimize management actions, project capital requirements, and even validate other ALM models, all without significant investment or retraining. About Milliman Milliman is among the world's largest providers of actuarial and related products and services. The firm has consulting practices in healthcare, property & casualty insurance, life insurance and financial services, and employee benefits. Founded in 1947, Milliman is an independent firm with offices in major cities around the globe.

CogniSure AI Announces Solution Partnership With Duck Creek Technologies for Transforming Unstructured Submission Data Into Risk Insights

Duck Creek Technologies and CogniSure | September 15, 2022

CogniSure Submission Ingestion API allows commercial insurance carriers quicker access to risk insights buried in submission emails and attachments such as Loss Runs and SOVs. CogniSure AI, an Illinois-based corporation, has entered into partnership with market-leading insurance software provider Duck Creek Technologies, which allows insurance companies to exponentially gain underwriting efficiencies while enhancing their risk decision-making capabilities. CogniSure AI's algorithms extract data from complex submission documents such as applications, schedules, SOVs and loss runs into structured formats and further derive risk insights for underwriter consumption. Duck Creek customers can easily integrate CogniSure AI's Submission Ingestion APIs through its Marketplace. With ever-increasing risk complexity and customer expectations, it's important that underwriters focus their time on risk assessment and nurturing relationships rather than manually extracting and aggregating data buried in PDF/Excel documents attached to submissions. PropertyCasualty360 reported that commercial insurers receive roughly 100 million submissions each year; as such, underwriters are extremely selective as to which risks they are willing to work. A majority of the commercial submissions come in emails, and unstructured data is one of the biggest challenges to digitization of commercial underwriting operations. "Unstructured Data ingestion is a big challenge for property and casualty (P&C) insurance carriers, and we are excited to have CogniSure AI join the Duck Creek solution partner ecosystem. CogniSure AI drives significant operational efficiencies and helps underwriters make better risk decisions by providing access to data that is buried in unstructured documents." - Robert Fletcher, Head of Global Partnerships at Duck Creek Sai Raman, Founder & CEO, CogniSure, said, We're really excited to roll out our submission intake solution for Duck Creek customers. We believe it's a tremendous opportunity to complement the Duck Creek platform and drive the automation of underwriting submission processes. We have invested significantly to pre-train our solution through large volumes of insurance documents such as loss runs and schedules to make it production ready and deliver best-in-class precision and responsiveness. About Duck Creek Technologies Duck Creek Technologies is the intelligent solutions provider defining the future of the property and casualty (P&C) and general insurance industry. We are the platform upon which modern insurance systems are built, enabling the industry to capitalize on the power of the cloud to run agile, intelligent, and evergreen operations. Authenticity, purpose, and transparency are core to Duck Creek, and we believe insurance should be there for individuals and businesses when, where, and how they need it most. Our market-leading solutions are available on a standalone basis or as a full suite, and all are available via Duck Creek OnDemand.
