Frequently asked questions

Why is my business at risk?

Companies store lots of sensitive customer data. A cyber-attack and a data breach could cost thousands of pounds in fines and damage the company’s reputation.

You may need Cyber-Liability Insurance if you:

  • hold customer data, including names, addresses or banking information
  • are reliant on computer systems to conduct your business
  • have a website
  • are subject to a payment card industry (PCI) merchant services agreement.

Hacking, is it really likely to happen to me?

Computer hacking is on the rise, according to the UK’s National Crime Agency, affecting essential services, businesses and private individuals alike. So, no business is immune.

We have good protective software. Why do we need cover?

Hackers are constantly changing their tactics. High profile breaches at large enterprises such as the BBC, British Airways and Boots show that software breaches can happen even when cyber security is apparently robust.

We back up to the Cloud, so why do we need cover?

The Cloud is just another platform for hackers to breach. The sheer volume of data and number of users means that the Cloud is an attractive target for hackers.

Won’t our Cloud provider pay?

You may have some recourse in this situation. However, this would be time-consuming, potentially costly, and wouldn't provide the immediate management you’ll need.
