Cyber insurance for office-based businesses

In today’s environment every company, irrespective of its size, relies heavily on technology and web connectivity to operate its business. All business owners and operators should ask themselves "what impact would there be on my business if our computer network security was compromised? And how would we deal with it?" Here are some of the things that those in an office-based environment should consider:

  • Staff are your greatest asset and main exposure to risk. Training them to be aware of cyber risks is imperative.
  • Employees can accidentally introduce malware or viruses through opening emails or by using their own devices on your network.
  • Criminals now use social media engineering to profile a business so they can target employees with credible e-mails from realistic sources. For example, an email allegedly from the CEO to the Accounts team requesting a (fraudulent) payment.
  • If a breach on your network got into the press, how would you rebuild customer confidence?
  • If you do hold client/customer data (even non-financial data), you are responsible for its security and potentially liable should it be stolen or accidentally disclosed.

Network security must be your first line of defense but if it should be breached where does your business stand? Do you have a plan of how you would respond to a serious event?

Traditional insurance policies do not provide cover for many of these risks, but cover is available through Cyber Insurance. The 24/7 expert assistance provided by a cyber insurance policy can help your business survive a cyber attack or incident.
