Cyber Risk and Data Protection Insurance

GET IN TOUCH

In today’s technological age, cyber risks have become a concern for all companies with impact varying on the kind of business. Recent national and international regulations imply that companies are facing increasing challenges to ensure that data and their IT environments are proactively protected from harm.

A cyber risk can be classified as an infringement of data or systems. Companies are vulnerable to cyber attacks given their limited resources. Not only is data protection good for the business, it also allows companies to adopt reasonable security arrangements so that compliance with data protection laws are met. All companies are legally responsible to protect personal data in their possession, which renders cyber insurance a priority these days.

Happening far more frequently, these cyber attacks put your organisation at varying levels of risk and damage. Speak with our dedicated business insurance team to discuss the implications of these data breaches for your business.

If your company experiences a cyber attack, a good policy will cover you. A cyber insurance policy is a combined coverage policy including a direct loss component if suffered by the insured party and a liability component insurance cover.

First party coverage: Business interruption and loss of digital assets
