What is Cyber and Data Risks Insurance?

Cyber risk is now widely accepted as being one of the top emerging risks. As the pace of technological advancements continues to grow, organisations’ reliance on computer networks and the information they hold and process has become critical in their ability to offer products and services, interact with customers and employees and generate revenue.

What does it do?

Cyber and data insurance is designed to support and protect you from evolving e-risks. It provides comprehensive cover for your computer systems and data, whether electronic or otherwise. Even if you store data with a cloud provider, you should carefully consider the legal contract you enter into, as whilst the risk of a data breach is reduced, the liability may still fall on you.

A Cyber policy is designed to cover you against stolen funds or theft of ID, loss or theft of data and damage to IT systems and networks, as well as replacing any stolen or infected devices. In addition to this, in the event of a breach, there may be further costs involved in notifying those affected, providing Credit Monitoring, dealing with regulatory bodies, and in some cases paying compensation, as well as re-building brand confidence through public relations advice and campaigns.

Cyber Insurance cover can include:

Cover Summary
Breach Costs

Data breach - forensic investigation and legal advice, customer notifications and support

Cyber Business Interruption

Compensation for loss of income as a result of a hacker preventing your business earning revenue

Repair and restoration of websites and programs damaged by a hacker
