Cyber Security Business Insurance

When it comes to a data security breach or privacy loss, it isn’t a matter of if it will happen as when it will happen. So when it does happen, you’ll need comprehensive protection from an insurer that specialises in handling cyber risks, offers a full suite of integrated insurance solutions to help minimise gaps in coverage, and understands how to tailor coverage to your business.

What is Cyber Security Business Insurance?
The World Wide Web has no boundaries and as business models evolve through the use of new technologies, so must traditional insurance programs and risk management practices. Businesses may be operating under the belief that their existing insurance policies are enough to cover their data security and privacy exposures. Unfortunately, this is not the case and traditional insurance policies may be inadequate to respond to the exposures organisations face today.

The information age allows us to collect more data, store more data and extract information around the globe 24/7. This access to private and sometimes sensitive information can significantly increase a company’s vulnerability to cyber security threats – any of which can result in significant out-of-pocket and reputation costs that can devastate a company’s bottom line.
