Cyber insurance is an insurance product designed to help businesses hedge against the potentially devastating effects of cybercrimes.
Cybercrimes include malware, ransomware, distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks, or any other method used to compromise a network and sensitive data. Social Engineering protects a loss accomplished by tricking an employee of a company into transferring funds to a fraudster.
While you may pay attention to the headlines, what you likely don’t hear about are all the cyber-attacks managed outside of the news cycle. The reality is, any business that has a responsibility to care for their corporate, employee, customer, or business associates’ information is vulnerable to cyber risks. Between hackers and human error, no business, large or small, can guarantee their technology infrastructure is 100% secure. All companies face cyber exposures, as well as additional concerns such as satisfying demanding customers and meeting ever-changing project requirements.
