Reduce the impact of a Cyber attack on your business with Cyber insurance. because all Heroes have their “Kryptonite.”
One of the advantages of building a strong Cyber security forcefield is to ensure your business is resilient by reducing the impact of a Cyber-attack to your business.
As a Businesses, it is second nature to install fire extinguishers, alarms and have fire-retardant doors and floors as risk mitigation measures, but you still buy property insurance.
When it comes to protecting your home, you install deadlocks, security screens, window locks, alarms, CCTV and yet your house can still be burgled.
All those things help mitigate the risk but don’t stop it happening. It’s the same with cyber – you can have back-ups, anti-virus software and IT staff, but things can still go wrong.
If your building burns down, property insurance will cover the rebuild and get the business back to its pre-loss status.
Cyber insurance works the same way. If your IT system is hacked or you suffer a major data breach, a comprehensive cyber policy will cover IT forensics and restoration costs, lost revenue, and assist in repairing reputation damage caused by the cyber event.
Coverage provided by cyber-insurance policies may include:
This covers the costs incurred to restore, re-collect or replace affected data, and loss of revenue due to network downtime because of a security breach or adverse media event.
Hackers can threaten to release confidential information or damage your computer networks in an attempt to extort money. This covers ransom paid to avoid the threat from becoming real.
Dedicated hotline to specialist IT, legal and public relations advisors in the event of an actual or suspected data loss or network intrusion.
You may sustain a direct monetary loss from a social engineering fraud, this covers the value of the goods or monies transferred which occurs as a result of a deceptive action of a third party.
This covers your liability in the event you suffer a data breach and you are sued by the affected party including customers or employees. This also includes regulatory penalties and defence expenses that you become legally obligated to pay arising from a breach of various global data protections laws.
If a data breach occurs, this will cover costs incurred to maintain your reputation and provide support, such as a public relations firm to help repair damage to your brands; legal costs for notifying your affected customers, postage and advertising costs, and bringing in IT forensic teams to ascertain the cause of the data breach and potentially remove the hacker from your system.
To minimise the impact to your business, having access to a pre-agreed panel of specialist experts can dramatically reduce the impact of a crisis. When making a claim the breach response team is available to work around the clock.
24/7 Incident Response
The first respondent is an IT Security specialist tasked with managing the incident, diagnosing and fixing the issue to get your business back on track. IT forensic experts get in touch as soon as practical to provide triage and remediation around the clock.
This is followed up with a pre-agreed panel of experts – IT forensics, legal and public relations – to manage the crisis, all local and coordinated together.
You’ll get the very best help when you need it most.
CYBER Insurance in Action
An employee received an email to say that she had been caught speeding and clicked the button which offered to show a photograph of her being caught in the act. Shortly afterwards our client received an email from someone in Russia to say that they had infected their systems with the Cryptolocker virus and that all files on its servers were encrypted. The encrypted files included customer records and software used to run the business. The Russians were asking for $5,000 in Bitcoins for the decryption key. Insurers approved the client’s payment of the ransom.
Unfortunately this only recovered 90% of the files and they needed an IT contractor to help them recover the remainder.
Their insurance policy covered this business interruption as well as the costs of being unable to trade for a couple of days and not being fully up-to-speed for a couple of weeks.
Total payment $35,000.
