In the Cyber Insurance and Risk Management space we provide solutions in four key areas.

Cyber Insurance for SMEs

Our newest offering is our UK SME offering, Optimum Cyber Plus. In creating Optimum Cyber Plus; we have taken a completely original, partner led approach to understanding and mitigating the Cyber Risks of UK SMEs. Cyber Risk, at its core, changes very little from the Corporate to SME sector but unfortunately, the Cyber Security budgets and understanding do. It is for this reason that OSR will make the premium solutions that, historically, have only been available for large entities, available to the smallest too.

OSR policyholders turning over up to £50m annually will receive the following benefits:


KryptoKloud will provide you with 2 hours free consultancy to review any issues highlighted by the KryptoScan


Firewall and Backup Solutions via AVG Avast Business Pro Plus anti-virus software (businesses t/o up to £5m)


A complimentary, one-hour consultation with one of the UK’s leading GDPR consultancy practices, leading to Employee security awareness training modules covering Cyber Crime, Data Protection and Security


Cyber Essentials Certification and Management


Finally, and this is the only bit your clients’ pay for, in the event that they still suffer a loss, the wide coverage of Optimum Cyber Plus will respond

Given the complex nature of cyber risk, at OSR we understand the need to make the placing process as easy as possible for our supporting brokers. For this reason, quotations for our SME product can be obtained and bound in two ways: online via a simple quote and bind system, or directly with the team via a short, one-page proposal form.

For more information on these and other products please view our OSR brochure or contact a member of our team if you have any questions. We are here to help.
