An important strategic objective of insurance companies is to limit the risk of business interruption for the policyholder.
Against this background, VdS provides a dense network of competent IT system houses and IT consultants who regularly maintain their know-how at the current cyber security level. These system houses and consultants are referred by VdS to interested insurance companies and can perform so-called assistance services for them. Within the framework of a valid cyber policy, the policyholder can, for example, call up appropriate IT security consulting services or request rapid on-site support in the event of a loss without additional expense if a critical event is suspected.
The assistance network of system houses and consulting companies, which offer their services to the insurance industry through individual assistance service contracts and work directly with insurers, currently comprises around 85 partners. Due to the high demand and a high level of acceptance in the market, we are consistently expanding the network.
As a qualified IT service provider, you have the opportunity to join the VdS Assistance network conveniently. All you have to do is fill in and send the application form (see below). Alternatively, you can download the questionnaire here. Please send us the completed form by e-mail to cyber(at)vds.de. We will then check and accept your details and list you as a partner in the assistance network. Im Anschluss prüfen und übernehmen wir Ihre Angaben und listen Sie als Partner in dem Assistance-Netzwerk.
On request, we will forward the data of the Assistance Network to interested insurance companies who will in turn contact you and offer a corresponding assistance service contract. VdS Schadenverhütung GmbH plays only a mediating role in the process. The overall objective is to achieve the greatest possible availability of competent IT service providers throughout Germany. To achieve this, we aim for an operating radius of 50 to 100 km.
We would be pleased if you would contribute to the further development of a nationwide IT assistance network with your participation. And, of course, use the opportunity to achieve additional sales and earnings opportunities for your company.
