Main Street America Insurance has partnered with TransUnion to provide specialized cyber risk protection for small businesses. Main Street America’s small business policyholders will have access to TransUnion’s TruEmpower™ CyberScout solution, which is designed to help companies address perils from commercial breach, cyber extortion, business identity theft and other cyber security threats.
“Data tells us that a surprisingly small percentage of businesses are insured against cyber attacks, despite information that these types of attacks are on the rise. By bolstering our cyber offering, we aim to provide agents an additional layer of protection for their business owner clients,” said Richard Vaughn, head of sales for Main Street America. “This is another step in our commercial lines transformation, strengthening our suite of business coverages to meet the evolving needs of main street businesses nationwide,” he added.  

By leveraging CyberScout’s services, Main Street America is able to provide cyber risk coverage through its new Main Street Commercial+™ platform. In the event of a breach or cyber attack, CyberScout delivers cyber claims management, incident response, and forensics services that activate to help assess the severity of a security incident. The CyberScout services support the crisis management process to help mitigate damage, communicate with stakeholders, and preserve and restore the business’s reputation. The CyberScout services also offer mobile text notifications, a comprehensive customer web portal with access to cyber safety tips, and a free "Business Security Self-Assessment" survey to assist businesses in identifying gaps in their cyber security program. 

“The aftermath of a data breach can feel chaotic for a business owner, and it’s difficult to even know how to begin addressing the situation,” said Matt Cullina, head of TransUnion’s global cyber insurance business. “CyberScout’s services are both technical and consultative to assess and repair the damage, while helping small business owners navigate the process—so they can focus on protecting their customers as well as their brand.”

The Main Street Commercial+™ platform is currently rolling out across the country.
