Some reasons why you should consider Cyber Liability Insurance:
GDPR – WHAT DATA DO YOU HOLD?
In the digital age companies are responsible for increasing amounts of data. On an individual level, if payments are taken by credit or debit card, you are responsible for the personal data recorded. Employee data can be even more detailed and include payroll details and medical history. Sub contractors that you use will also have access to this data, and if they suffer a breach Cyber Liability Insurance will cover your liability as well.
On a corporate level, information regarding new developments and planning issues can also be sensitive, and you are responsible for it being stored securely. If you hold data on US clients, you are required by law to notify them in writing of a breach. Cyber Liability Insurance will pay for these notification costs whether mandatory or voluntary, and the policy responds to local laws in the applicable territory.
THE FULL COST OF A BREACH:
Your company/practice may be exposed to the following costs:
– Regulatory fines
– Damages and litigation expenses associated with defending claims from third parties
– Diagnosing the source or loss of a breach
– Reconfiguring networks, re-establishing security and restoring data and systems
– Notification costs
– Credit file monitoring
– Implementation of disaster recovery plan
– Lost billable time.
A professional indemnity policy is unlikely to indemnify you for breaches of data protection legislation or the costs to your firm following a breach.
News of a data leak spreads fast, especially in an age of social media. Public confidence in a company can diminish within hours. The situation requires careful management and consideration of the media, customers, staff and stakeholders. Swift action and a carefully managed PR response will be needed to regain trust and protect the company’s reputation.
COULD YOUR BUSINESS CONTINUE TRADING WITHOUT YOUR IT SYSTEMS?
If your IT systems failed, or you experienced an intrusion or were hacked, what would the effect be on your business? Inability
to transact business and document work? Damaging existing relationships and hindering the development of new
relationships? Negative publicity? All these lead to a loss of revenue that is out of your control. Cyber Insurance can help cover the loss of revenue, recover the lost data and notify the data subjects of the breach.
CHECK FOR GAPS IN YOUR INSURANCE COVER
It is unlikely that coverage required in the event of a data breach will be provided by standard Professional Indemnity,
Directors & Officers or Commercial Liability policies and it is possible that you may not be compliant with your regulatory
obligations. If limited cover is provided it will not be adequate in certain claims scenarios such as virus transmission, business
interruption without physical damage to premises, and mandatory and voluntary notification costs.
