What is Corporate Cyber Insurance?

A corporate cyber insurance policy, also referred to as “cyber risk insurance” or “cyber liability insurance”, is a financial product that enables businesses to transfer the costs involved with recovery from a cyber-related security breach or similar events. It protects businesses against computer-related crimes and losses. This can include targeted attacks, such as malware and phishing, as well as the occasional misplaced laptop containing confidential material.

Why is Corporate Cyber Insurance Necessary?

Today’s business technology opens up a world of possibilities but also raises some cyber protection concerns. Threats of data breaches and computer hacks are real for all businesses. With hackers becoming bolder and cyber-attacks getting bigger and more frequent every year, business owners must take control of their computer security and protect themselves. Cyber insurance provides businesses the coverage they need to protect one of their most valuable assets – data. It offers comprehensive protection against first and/or third-party liabilities arising due to system security breaches, flaws in payment portals, data fraud or any other internet related risks.

Features of Corporate Cyber Insurance

Cyber Extortion/Ransomware

Cyber Insurance pays the ransom costs when hackers deny an insured access to their own network and threaten to obtain or disclose sensitive information unless a ransom is paid.

Data Loss and Restoration

In a digital world, property is no longer exclusively tangible, so cyber coverage is needed to pay for the recovery costs of intangible data. It covers the costs to replace, restore, or repair damaged or destroyed data and software.

Reputational/Crisis Management

Data breaches can have profound PR implications for any business. Cyber Insurance covers costs of engaging a crisis-management team to help mitigate reputational harm due to a cyber event.

Forensic-Investigation Costs

This covers costs to hire computer forensics consultants working under the direction of your attorneys to determine whether a data breach has occurred, to contain and prevent further damage, and to investigate the cause and scope of the breach.

Breach costs

Covers costs associated with responding to a breach, such as forensic costs to confirm and identify the breach, costs to notify affected individuals, credit protection services, including costs to staff a call centre for redemption of monitoring offers, and crisis management costs.

Business Interruption:

Covers lost business income when a company has its network-dependent revenue interrupted. Technology growth has created new business income perils, such as viruses, tech failures, programming errors, and computer hacking, so cyber coverage is needed to pay for interruptions from these events as well.

Digital Media Liability

Covers costs to defend and resolve claims related to online content, such as copyright or trademark infringement, invasion of privacy, defamation, unintentional infliction of emotional distress, unfair practices and negligence in connection with your media activities
