When you think of protecting your company’s data and network, firewalls and antivirus software may…
The loss or compromise of data can have a serious impact on your business and customers, and your company may be liable for damages. This is where cybersecurity insurance could save the day.
Cybersecurity insurance, also known as Cyber Liability Insurance or Cyber Risk Insurance, is much like any other insurance. It is a paid contract that helps an organization reduce financial liability associated with using the internet and doing business online by transferring some risk to the insurer.
Cybersecurity insurance plans typically cover data loss and recovery, business interruption due to breach, loss of transferred funds, fraud and extortion. For companies storing customers’ personal and payment information, additional policies would be needed to cover the loss of third-party data and resulting civil damages, reputation management, and computer forensics.
Traditional business insurance policies are simply not equipped to handle the risks that cybersecurity insurance can. It is unique in that it is ever-changing due to the evolution and volatility of cyber risks. Hackers are always finding new ways to wreak havoc on businesses and their customers, so having a flexible insurance plan is key.
