Cyber Insurance



What Is Cyber Insurance?

Cyber insurance is often referred to as cyber risk insurance or cyber liability insurance. This type of coverage could help protect your business against computer-related crimes and losses including data breaches, network security attacks, media or content liabilities, and other various technology-related risks.

If your business computer system is compromised by a targeted or an accidental attack, your business might be responsible for costs related to responding to the attack. Cyber insurance may cover expenses for repairs, lost income, notifying customers and affected parties, legal fees, and fines.

Cyber insurance from PolicySweet® is included in our business owners policy (BOP). General liability and property insurance are two other types of insurance that are part of our BOP coverage. All three coverages are combined into one package to help protect businesses from multiple risks.

Why Is Cyber Insurance Important?

Businesses of all sizes and industries are at risk for cyber threats. With more businesses allowing employees to work from home and many brick-and-mortar stores offering online products and services, cyberattacks and data breaches are becoming increasingly common especially for businesses that use or store digital data.

A cyberattack or network failure can not only be inconvenient, but it can impact your business financially and put your employees and customers at risk. Cyber insurance could help to reduce the impacts of a claim and may cover costs related to data restoration, legal fees, fines and notifying customers. It could even help cover public relations costs to help protect your business’ reputation after a cyberattack.
