Cyber Risk

Cyber Risk

Data protection and network security has become a leading issue for most businesses owing to a surge in the use of technology and collection of information required for a modern business to operate.

Understand your business exposure


Managing the internal risks of human error and system failures along with external threats such as malicious or nuisance attacks, is a relentless task and further complicated by an increasing trend to outsource business functions to third parties such as payroll processors, data back-up and cloud related services.

This leads to an increased possibility of legal exposure, reputational harm and income loss that can wreak havoc on a company’s bottom line.

Sample insurance cover

Traditional insurance covering liabilities, property and crime fail to provide adequate protection for intangible assets such as computer networks and data.

Costs to deal with a breach of security or breach of data can be split between your own expenses to respond and third party costs to defend and settle with others.

Policies differ between insurers but the below table demonstrates what most insurers will aim to provide.
