What Is The Need For Cyber Liability Insurance Cover? 


With so much of our daily correspondence communicating through mobile phones and laptops/computer devices these days, it is inevitable to say that cyber attacks are on the rise. With so much valuable and important information literally at our fingertips, it is becoming increasingly easier for hackers to worm their way through your accounts to pluck out the information they are looking for. It is reported that in July 2019, there has been a record of 2.2 billion records leaked of data breaches and cyber attacks! Therefore there is a crucial importance to ensure that YOUR business is protected by a trusty Cyber Liability Insurance cover to protect yourself from possible dangers. 


What Are The Risks If I Don’t Have Cyber Liability Insurance?


Human Error – This could include loss, theft or unauthorised access. 


Cyber Criminals – With the purpose to attack your online presence or stored data. 


Held Data – When an individual or illegal enterprise take data from you and threaten to only restore things once they have received a payment. 


How Can I Manage My Cyber Risks?


You can manage your cyber risks by:


– Evaluating first and third party risks associated with the IT systems and networks in your business.


– Assessing potential events that could cause first or third-party risks to materialise. 


– Analysing the controls that are currently in place and deciding whether they need improvement. 


In addition to these steps, the most obvious way to protect yourself from cyber risks is of course, with a legitimate insurance policy. 


What Is Cyber Liability Insurance?


A Cyber Liability Insurance policy simply covers the losses relating to damage to, or loss of information from IT systems and networks. If your business does rely on IT equipment to store information and confidential data then you are at risk of being exposed to business interruption, a potential loss of income and possibly reputational damage if your systems are failed or interrupted. If your business holds particular information such as sensitive customer details, relies heavily on IT equipment to conduct business and/or uses payment processes with card information, then it is vital that you get on board with a Cyber Liability Insurance policy as soon as possible.
