Why Cyber Liability Coverage?

What does cyber insurance cover?

  • The cost to respond and recover from a data breach
  • Theft of funds electronically or through fraudulent instructions
  • Cost of ransom if your computer is encrypted
  • Business interruption if your computer systems are damaged due to an attack

What if I don’t have sensitive data?

Almost every business stores or collects sensitive data including credit card information, banking information, employee information, customer’s driver license numbers, social security numbers, or protected health information; and you are legally obligated to protect information you collect.

We don’t take credit cards or store other sensitive information on customers or tenants.

Do you bank online? Do you pay vendors or collect rent using ACH or Wire? Social Engineering fraud is a leading cyber exposure. Cyber criminals deceive small businesses into sending money by using transfer instructions which seem legitimate.

Do you rely on a computer system or network to conduct day-to-day business that is also used for email and web browsing by your employees? Ransomware is a leading form of cyber extortion. Criminals lock your computer after infecting it with malware typically through an email. All files and access is denied until the ransom is paid. What if your computer system is hacked and computers and servers are wiped out or not available for use? How will you conduct your business? Can your business cover the lost income?

These costs and services can be covered through this policy.
