Share |

Cyber insurance protects businesses from computer, network and internet based risks. The policy covers both first and third party loss. Every business that uses the Internet, accepts credit cards, or uses a system network needs cyber insurance. 

If you answer yes to any of these questions, you need a cyber insurance policy:

  • Does your business accept credit card payments?
  • Does your business bank online?
  • Does your business use Facebook, Twitter, or LinkedIn?
  • Does your business store sensitive customer or employee data?
 YOUR CYBER EXPOSURE  HOW OUR CYBER INSURANCE POLICY RESPONDS

 FUNDS TRANSFER FRAUD

A hacker breaks into your computer system and gains access to your online banking account. The hacker uses his access to request a funds transfer.

Covers the money lost but not reimbursed from a criminal fraudulently issuing instructions to your bank to electronically transfer funds.

 RANSOMWARE

  • Defense and settlement costs for related lawsuits.

 NETWORK SECURITY
