Cyber insurance goes beyond your general liability or business policies to cover the costs of getting you up and running again after a breach, as well as the lost income due to a business shut down.  A breach can cause crippling damage to your data and your pocketbook.

Speciality insurance coverage for cyber risks is relatively new to the marketplace. However, the possibility of a cyber attack is a reality that every business owner needs to consider.  It is certainly not just a “big business” issue, as small businesses have become more attractive targets in the eyes of many hackers.

  • 40% of all cyber attacks target business with fewer than 500 employees

  • The average cost per incident is $15,000.
