The index is intended to help businesses identify the leading cyber risks they may face. Users can set parameters unique to their company, and view historical trends based on type of threat, size of business and industry sector.

“The first step to protecting a business from a cyber attack is staying aware of what threats are most prominent to a company’s size and industry,” Bill Stewart, division president of Chubb’s global cyber risk practice, said in a news release. “Our Cyber Index will help users to better understand their exposures and manage risk before a cyber incident occurs.”

Chubb will update the index biweekly, with the ultimate goal of delivering data in real time.
