Data Protection Breach & Cyber Liability Insurance

Data Protection Breach and Cyber Liability Insurance

Client databases could be the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow for cyber criminals.  Let us ask you 4 questions.

  1. Do you hold personally identifiable information on your clients such as name, birth date, and PPS numbers?
  2. Do you hold personal credit information for your clients including credit card numbers?
  3. Do you hold personal information for your clients including medical records?
  4. Do you store the above information electronically?

If there is a breach, your client’s personal information is no longer protected. As a result they could be victims of identity theft or fraud. They will look to the source of the breech for a solution.

Without cyber liability insurance you could find yourself out of pocket.

Why should I buy cyber Liability Insurance?

Cyber Liability insurance can safeguard your business against the financial losses caused by breaches of your network security.

Viruses, and malware are common causes of electronic damage. Cyber Liability insurance can protect your business against the costs incurred as a result of an external attack.

Cyber Liability insurance can also cover the costs of data restoration, reputation management and crisis management in the wake of an incident.

So how much could a cyber-attack actually cost me?

If you have a breach you will need to report it to the relevant authorities.

Contact all of the affected parties.
