The Hartford Steam Boiler Inspection and Insurance Company (HSB), part of Munich Re, in collaboration with NetDiligence, is providing a range of online risk management tools to help its insured businesses and organizations recover when personal information is lost or stolen, the company announced.
"Our customers can find the resources they need through the eRisk Hub web portal," said Eric Cernak, HSB VP. "This easy-to-use website includes the latest news and notification requirements, a self- assessment guide, webinars, and step-by-step suggestions on what actions to take when data is breached."

The eRisk Hub web-based portal, supported by NetDiligence, will help customers insured by Hartford Steam Boiler and its partner insurance companies understand their information exposures, establish a response plan, and manage the costs and minimize the effects of a data breach.
