Launched in 2021 by Jules Veyrat, Alexandre Andreini, Nicolas Sayer and Philippe Mangematin, Stoïk is the first company in Europe to combine insurance and cybersecurity software to protect VSEs and SMEs against cyberattacks.
At the origin of Stoik, a surprise: how can small businesses remain so vulnerable in the face of a threat as devastating as cyberattacks?
Today, SMEs managers are aware of this risk. But most of them lack the technical knowledge and financial resources to protect themselves properly.
To support leaders, Stoïk has developed a 100% online product, accessible and easy to subscribe, which combines:
1. Insurance coverage to allow them to be accompanied and financially compensated in the event of a successful attack.
2. Cybersecurity software (external scan, phishing campaigns, etc.) to limit their exposure to human and technical vulnerabilities as much as possible.
To perfectly align interests, the cybersecurity software developed by the Stoik engineering team is made available 100% free of charge to policyholders.
No one knows how to sell an insurance product better than an insurance broker. It is for this reason that Stoik has opened up a space for its partner brokers through which they can distribute this new product.
The objective for Stoïk is to make their life easier by simplifying the subscription process as much as possible: no more endless questionnaires, it is through an automated external scan that Stoïk will determine the eligibility of companies.
For Jules Veyrat, president and co-founder of Stoïk after four years at Philosophie magazine, the attitude to adopt in the face of such a risk is to be drawn from Stoic philosophy: the idea is always to distinguish what depends on us from what which does not depend on it, to act on what we can change, and calmly accept what escapes our control.
In cybersecurity, zero risk does not exist, but it is possible to greatly reduce it thanks to a set of good practices. And for the rest, you have to make sure!
