ABOUT US

We’re on a Mission
to Make the World
Cyber Resilient.

Founded by experts from across the highest tiers of the US military and intelligence communities – and built by prominent leaders and innovators from the insurance, technology, and cybersecurity industries – Resilience is rewriting the rules of how cyber risk is assessed, measured, and managed.

Our History

Our Values

Our core values are at the heart of everything we do.

Transparency

We are always honest and to-the-point, never hiding behind fear-mongering or jargon

Excellence

We strive for and hold ourselves accountable to the highest standards

Grit

We go the extra mile beyond the task itself to get the job done right

Humility

We focus on continuously listening and learning for ourselves and our stakeholders

Driving results through Cyber Resilience.

We created Resilience because we believe that the current approach to defending the digital ecosystem is inadequate and insufficient. Unlike other cyber insurance or cybersecurity providers, we partner with clients to deliver results that protect their bottom line.
