If your company has a computer system – whether it’s for trading purposes, using the internet, for sending and receiving emails or for storing data, Cyber and Data Risk Insurance must be considered as essential.
With the headlines full of news about cyber attacks, how do you know if your company is at risk – and how can cyber insurance help?

Network security and privacy liability

Technology errors and omissions
Companies store a lot of sensitive customer data. If criminals get access to company databases and the data is breached, it could cost thousands of pounds in fines and the company’s reputation could be damaged. If you hold customer data, including names, addresses or banking information, are reliant on computer systems to conduct your business or have a website, you are at risk.
Hackers are constantly changing their tactics and methods. Even companies that are technology based are being targeted.
The cloud is just another platform for hackers to target. In fact, the number of users and amount of data that is potentially available means that cloud storage is actually an extremely attractive target for hackers.
Today’s businesses rely on the internet for services such as online marketing, administrative functions, inventory management, credit card processing, and distribution controls. Any intrusion that disrupts delivery of these services can lead to brand and reputation damage, regulatory scrutiny, stakeholder dissatisfaction, and financial losses.
A data breach could cripple your business, costing you thousands or millions of pounds in lost sales, damages or sanctions.
Cyber Liability provides cover against damage from cyber-attacks, data breaches and other basic risks resulting from electronic communications and data storage. Cyber Liability Insurance will often cover the cost of recreating damaged or lost data – but will not include costs that stem from the loss or damage, such as legal expenses and data notification costs.
