Cyber Liability Insurance – are you covered?

Cyber Liability insurance is a type of insurance coverage that helps protect businesses from the financial loss and other damages that can result from cyber attacks.

If your business relies on technology to operate, it is essential to consider Cyber Liability Insurance. It acts as a safety net in the event of accidental or malicious data breaches or incidents. To determine whether cyber insurance is necessary for your organisation, consider if you use business software on computers, store personal information or employee/client email addresses on computers, process card or electronic payments, or operate a website or use cloud storage for data. 

The exposure of such information to unauthorised parties can be detrimental. Understanding the repercussions of a security breach is crucial for grasping its potential impact on your organisation. 

For instance, ransomware attacks can render systems inaccessible, while viruses or malware can compromise crucial data, resulting in financial losses due to downtime and the costs associated with response and recovery.

Typically, cyber insurance policies cover expenses directly linked to a security breach, including investigation, data recovery, hardware repairs, consumer and regulatory notifications, crisis management, and PR damage control, if necessary.

Companies seeking cyber insurance must, at a minimum, adhere to basic safety measures:

Prior to exploring cyber insurance options, it’s vital to fortify your organisation against potential attacks by implementing fundamental cybersecurity measures, such as those outlined in Cyber Essentials or Cyber Essentials Plus certification.

Adopting Cyber Essentials not only enhances your cyber security posture but also provides £25,000 of cyber insurance. Obtaining a Cyber Essentials certification can lead to reduced insurance premiums by showcasing your commitment to mitigating cyber risks.

Some insurers may even offer discounts for organisations that have implemented recognised cyber security standards like Cyber Essentials or Cyber Essentials Plus, signalling to stakeholders that adequate security measures are in place.
