What is cyber liability insurance?

In recent years, as businesses take more of their data online, cyber liability insurance has become a necessity when covering risks associated with loss. Security is a fundamental part of any business, especially when handling clients or customer data and it is important that your business covers against the potential loss of data due to human error, hacks, viruses and more.

Cyber risks for businesses

There are many ways a business could come under threat and lose vital information. The most common threat is from viruses or hackers, who operate by targeting vulnerabilities in business’ network and security systems.

Cyber liability insurance protects you and your business against all third-party risks, including loss of a laptop to a full-scale breach of security. The cover also protects against the cost of dealing with a security breach, multimedia cover for intellectual property rights infringement, extortion, legal costs and more.

The level of cover you require can be decided by you, depending on the amount of risks there are to your business’ security. It is advisable to create a list of potential threats that your business may be at risk of, from DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) to ransomware, and vulnerabilities in your network system.
