A First Notice of Loss can be submitted in one of two methods:

- Carrier can submit First Notice of Loss directly into the CyberScout Claims portal.
There will be times when we will need to employ an expert (i.e. forensic accountant) or other vendors (i.e. call center). We will refer to our established and fully vetted service provider resources. No external service provider will be hired without consult with the client.
We will post a reserve in less than 30 days, we will also post a separate expense reserve. Reserves will be adjusted through the life of a claim as needed with approval from parties listed in the Memorandum of Understanding.
There may be certain triggers that will require us to obtain authority from the carrier prior to suggesting/posting a reserve increase. Any reserve increase above a predetermined value will require a Claims Summary form to be completed reviewed and approved by agreed upon individuals listed in the Memorandum of Understanding. All reserves will be continually reviewed upon diary.
CyberScout Claims will hire defense counsel that specializes in cyber claims/litigation if a suit is filed, coverage is disputed, or the scope of loss dictates. The carrier can provide input on the selection of the defense counsel, dependent upon level of expertise.
