Why Cyber Cover?

We live in an era where all our personal information is constantly being mined. Our data is valuable and we share it daily with a myriad of companies. We are under constant threat by hackers and cyber criminals looking at ways of extorting information for resale or for ransom.

Almost daily the headlines name large organisations that have been hacked and had data stolen but what we don’t read is that more and more micro and small businesses are being targeted by phishing and social engineers. There is now also a greater duty of care being placed on your business to protect your employees, customers and suppliers’ personal data (recent GDPR regulations) so, it is becoming more apparent that no matter how small your business is, you require a partner who can help protect your business in the event of a cyber breach.

Your employees are your strongest link, so upskilling your staff to recognise potential threats is one way to minimize a loss, but should that fail, then transferring the risk to an insurer who understands the threats to your business and reputation, is an investment you can’t afford to be without.
