Safeguard your business’ data with cyber insurance.
Almost every business uploads sensitive data online. As we can do just about everything online, it’s only natural now that we’ve turned to the tech world to store and acquire information. This sensitive information is more accessible than you may think. For this reason, your business needs reliable cyber insurance.
On a daily basis, companies access employees’ contact details, bank details, Social Security numbers, as well as important vendor and client information. It’s no wonder that hackers are learning that businesses are a gold-mine! With a wealth of data, more than ever, companies need to protect their cyber systems.
There are many ways in which your business can be affected by digital attacks, which is why more businesses are looking into cyber liability insurance. Insurance is a safety net for businesses. Standard policies can pay for a number of damages that accompany a breach such as:
- Breach notification expenses
- Credit-monitoring fees
- Security investigation and repair
- Cyber extortion expenses
To decrease the likelihood of an attack, you can implement regular password changes, train employees to spot phishing emails, and limit staff access to sensitive information.
Cyber liability insurance is fairly straightforward: It only covers damages done by cyber attacks. As a result, it wouldn’t be able to cover cyber property damage when a hack shuts down an infrastructure and causes physical property loss. With the number of cyber attacks rising, this form of protection is valuable to employees, clients, and business owners alike!
This type of insurance protects your business assets by paying for a legal defense, court-ordered compensation, and other expenses. It allows you to focus on rebuilding and restoring your customers and vendors’ faith without worrying about data breach related expenses!
