AdNovum: new offering «cyber security assessment»

Security consulting

By launching its new offering «cyber security assessment», AdNovum supports companies in correctly assessing their IT risks and strengthens its security consulting service portfolio.


Given the current threats in IT, the Swiss software company AdNovum launches a new consulting service named cyber security assessment. As IT systems change dynamically and business-critical elements increasingly depend on IT processes and infrastructure due to digitization, a cyber security assessment allows recognizing threats and correctly assessing the risks. This includes differentiating between risks that can be managed with existing or new proprietary security measures and risks that require insurance coverage. If a cyber security insurance is needed, AdNovum analyzes the current situation and suggests measures based on which the customer can take out insurance cost-effectively and with the greatest possible benefit.



Long-standing experience

The cyber security assessment is based on AdNovum's long-standing experience in IT security for companies and government agencies. It was developed in cooperation with Kessler, the leading Swiss company in the fields of risk management and insurance consulting. The new offering is aimed at companies of all industries and sizes, from start-ups and SMEs to multinationals.


AdNovum's CCO Peter Gassmann: «A cyber security assessment by AdNovum helps organizations understand their risks and vulnerabilities, thus enabling them to prioritize different measures.»


Aldo Rodenhaeuser, Head of Security Consulting at AdNovum: «Following the assessment, we also support our customers in the selection of specific measures, the planning or the technical and organizational implementation.»


Dr. Helmut Studer, Member of the Executive Committee of Kessler: «To be able to take out cyber risk insurance, customers first have to do their homework. AdNovum's new offering helps to carry out the assessment and close any gaps.»
