Why invest into Cyber Insurance?

As a business owner, you understand the importance of protecting your assets and your reputation. But in today’s digital age, cyber threats are a real and growing concern. That’s why cyber insurance is more important than ever.

A single data breach can cripple a business, causing damage not only to your bottom line but also to your reputation and customer trust. The costs of a data breach can include lawsuits, regulatory fines, and the expense of restoring operations and rebuilding customer trust. And that’s not even taking into account the indirect costs, such as lost business and a damaged reputation.

That’s where cyber insurance comes in. It can help cover the costs of a data breach and minimize the damage to your business. But more than that, it can give you peace of mind. Knowing that you’re covered can help you sleep better at night, and it can also give you the confidence to invest in growth opportunities.

Don’t leave your business exposed to the risks of a cyber attack. Invest in cyber insurance and protect your assets, your reputation, and your future.

Why is Cyber Insurance Important?

In today’s digital age, cyberattacks are a very real threat to every business, big or small. The reality is that the majority of cyberattacks happen to small and medium-sized organizations who may not have the same level of security infrastructure and digital safeguards in place as larger companies.

Cyber Liability Insurance FAQ

DOES MY BUSINESS NEED CYBER INSURANCE?

The short answer is: yes.

Every organization, from startups through fortune 100 companies, that store or transact data on a network are exposed to rapidly evolving cyber security risk. To put this into context, data privacy attacks now occur every 40 seconds in the U.S. and carry a legally required response and notification practice. The cost of this mandated response can be substantial and that is before you take into account the cost of a public backlash due to data breach.

Organizations that skip securing cyber insurance will be forced to independently fund state and federal fines, penalties, digital forensic investigations, breach notification costs and ensuing class action or third party lawsuits on top of public relations expenses.

Cyber insurance covers a broad array of first-party and post-breach expenses:

  • Privacy attorney legal costs
  • IT forensic investigation services
  • Compliance with state notification laws
  • Credit monitoring for breached individuals
  • Hiring a PR firm to manage the crisis
  • Covering regulatory fines
  • Class action lawsuits resulting from the breach
