As a business owner, regardless of whether you work in high tech or a more traditional industry, you require some form of cyber protection. Many business package policies provide basic protection for cyber exposures, such as the costs associated with notifying clients of a breach. But in many cases, it is not sufficient to help your business recover from a serious cyber incident. Whether or not you’re tech-savvy, it’s important to select the appropriate cyber coverage to protect your business, clients and employees from risks associated with the internet.
As a business owner, you take every precaution to protect your business from risk. The internet is constantly evolving and even the most tech-savvy individual is lucky to stay one click ahead of internet criminals and hackers. All it takes is one click by an employee on an email that looks like it came from you to turn your business upside down. It’s important to understand your company’s exposure. If you do business online, use cloud computing services or maintain sensitive data about your clients digitally you have a greater risk of exposure.
You may consider yourself not as an attractive target as a multinational corporation or government agency, but hackers are increasingly targeting small businesses. This puts everyone at risk.
Cyber Insurance is a specialized coverage that addresses the risks specifically associated with the internet. It is designed to protect businesses and individuals from losses such as data breaches, ransomware attacks (more formally known as denial of service attacks) and hacking, and on the liability side a failure on your part to properly secure your client’s confidential information.
