From regular technology to social media and even online transactions; they all play a key role in how organisations and businesses conduct themselves. These channels also serve as a breeding ground for cyber attacks. Whether launched by regular hackers, criminals or even nation states, cyber attacks are highly likely to occur to any business online at some point or another. The damage they do however, can never be predicted, from moderate to severe loss for businesses big and small. As part of risk management, companies now need to consider the necessity of technology insurance, otherwise known as cyber insurance.
What Is Cyber Insurance?
The term cyber insurance refers to a cyber risk insurance policy or cyber liability coverage. It’s designed specifically to help an organisation or business mitigate their exposure to risk. This is carried out by an adequate insurance policy that helps to offset the costs involved during recovery of a cyber-related security breach or an event similar. Cyber insurance policies taken out by companies are constantly increasing which shows that organisations are recognising the need for its existence more than ever.
Generally speaking, however, cyber insurance covers everything from investigations to determine how the event occurred, to business losses to privacy and notifications as well as lawsuits and extortion. Do keep in mind however, that cyber insurance is still very much evolving. Just as cyber risk itself changes frequently, so too will cyber insurance policies.
