177283686Data is being transferred online through numerous devices at an ever-increasing rate. As a larger percentage of your business operates online, it is extremely important to protect your company and your customers from a cyber-attack.

The Need for Security

Your business is handing sensitive information online. From customer contact information to your employees’ Social Security numbers, your company is exposed to risk and liability if you don’t deploy a security solution. If you host your own data or use a third-party vendor, you are responsible if you’re attacked. Develop a strategy and implement a data security plan that aligns with customer and employee expectations.

The Need for Insurance

Cyber liability insurance won’t stop an attack, but it can protect your business assets in the event of an unexpected incident.  This is not just a large business problem. With the majority of businesses touching the Internet, small companies need to invest in cyber liability insurance. There are many levels of coverage with premiums that won’t break the budget. The investment might save you a lot of money in the long-run.

The Need for Protection

Although you can take measures to prevent a cyber-attack, it is extremely difficult to completely avoid any kind of incident. If you enact a security strategy and hold cyber liability insurance, you’ll be covered for a variety of situations. Cyber liability insurance policies also often offer “first party” coverage, which helps with things like business interruption, public relations costs, and the expense of informing your customers about the breach.
