Our Agreements

  • Community of Trust provides a standard contract “Master” that is used for all Community of Trust owners and interconnected counterparties.
  • Addenda to the Master requires Officer certification of the NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) maturity level required by the Community of Trust owner and each interconnected counterparty.
  • Addenda to the Master is used to indicate the Cyber Insurance threshold requirements for each interconnected counterparty, required by the Community of Trust Owner.
  • Addenda to the Master is used to name the Community of Trust Owner as additional insured by each interconnected counterparty with a threshold minimum as required by the Community of Trust Owner.
The following document is an overview of our 2017 Master Agreements.
Agreement Overview

Community of Trust initiates a flywheel effect

  • Requires the Community of Trust owner and every interconnected counterparty to meet the requirements of the Master Agreement.
  • Requires Community of Trust owners to consult with competing underwriters to guide the Community of Trust owner to shape the Master’s Addenda enabling them to price the risk more efficiently and effectively.
  • Enables insurers to compete to originate and syndicate the risk that is defined by the Master agreement, governing the owner’s Community of Trust.
  • Enables the insured to potentially unlock regulatory capital allocated to cyber risk and enable regulatory bodies to promote a market-based, economically driven strategy versus a costly regulatory compliance regimen.

Access effective and efficiently priced cyber insurance

The single defect preventing the development of accessible and efficiently priced cybersecurity insurance is the absence of a standard contract structure that would enable the efficient pricing of risk and ultimately broad adoption of prudent cybersecurity requirements within your interconnected ecosystem. To begin to solve this problem we have developed a suite of standardized contracts that will enable cybersecurity insurance providers to begin to uniformly mitigate risks in the underwriting process. By enabling cyber risk to become more transparent and creating liquidity by virtue of the standard contract structure, Community of Trust enables broad syndication of risk. And, ultimately market-driven adoption of requirements, such as all interconnected counterparties meeting NIST Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) maturity thresholds and being reasonably insured themselves.

Benefits for Businesses and Financial Institutions

Community of Trust enables a business or financial institution to proceed immediately with a market-based approach to measure, mitigate and manage systemic cyber risk using familiar financial risk management processes. Community of Trust enables financial institutions to access more effective and efficiently priced cybersecurity insurance. Community of Trust enables financial institutions to potentially unlock regulatory capital allocated to cyber risk.

Benefits for Insurers

Community of Trust standard contracts enable fungibility and a frictionless, systematic syndication of risk. Community of Trust standard contracts enable the creation of financial instruments that enable the intermediation of risk by traditional financial market participants. Community of Trust requirements for interconnected counterparty compliance systemically improves cyber health and enables underwriting velocity, creating accelerated adoption of a prudent cybersecurity posture.
