Why Consider Cyber Insurance?
Even if you have the best possible cybersecurity plan available, a company is only ever as secure as its weakest link. No matter how much training you offer, it will always be possible for an employee to accidentally click a dangerous link or open a dangerous attachment and compromise a company’s network. With this ever-present risk in mind, cyber insurance is here to help mitigate and reduce the costs associated with cyber breaches. Cyber insurance is not only for large companies either; in a press release written by the Small Business Committee, it was reported that in 2016, 60% of all targeted attacks struck small and medium sized entities and also a staggering 60% of these small businesses closed within 6 months. No matter the size of your business, you can benefit from having a cyber insurance plan that will rectify any losses incurred in cyber attacks.

The Value of Having a Plan
Cyber insurance is coverage for cyber and cyber-related assets, like the loss of corporate intellectual property or data due to a ransomware attack. It’s not unlike the same insurance you would get for the destruction of corporate offices or buildings due to a natural disaster or an arson attack. Cyber insurance can cover many costs associated with breaches, including specific types of breach attempts such as social engineering or ransomware. Ultimately, the key to getting the most out of a cyber insurance plan is knowing your company’s needs and which of them to prioritize; this will allow you create the most effective and cost-efficient cyber insurance plan with your broker.
