Why do businesses need Cyber cover?
Cyber-attacks are not just reserved for the corporate giants with the type of incidents that we read about in the daily papers. Every business is exposed to some form of indiscriminate cyber risk.
Over 875,000 SMEs have declared that they have been affected by a cyber-attack in the last year. With costs from £10,000 up to over £2.5m, enough to put a small to medium sized business in financial trouble. There are many potential consequences, including the cost of getting things rectified, business interruption and third party exposures.
Why do you need it?
When thinking about cyber risk and whether or not to purchase cyber insurance, it is worthwhile considering how the client will:
- Resolve a security or privacy breach. Do they have a plan in place with immediate access to individuals who are experienced at handling cyber events?
- Restore corrupted or encrypted systems and data.
- Respond to system disruption. What is the likely impact on a client’s ability to trade?
- Manage any reputational issues arising from a breach.
- Manage communications with the Information Commissioner’s Office.
- Manage any civil suits and regulatory actions seeking damages or imposing penalties.
