Cyber liability insurance for businesses

Cyber risk solutions

Data breaches are complicated and costly. In 2017, our annual survey of business owners found that:

  • 58% had experienced a cyberattack
  • More than 20% of those victims spent at least $50,000 and took longer than six months to recover
  • 7% spent more than $100,000 
  • 5% took a year or longer to rebuild their reputation and customer trust1 

With cyberattacks becoming more frequent, there’s a growing chance that a business like yours will suffer a data breach or computer attack. That’s why you need protection to help offset the devastating effects it can have on your business from a financial and reputation standpoint.

Cyber risk solutions

Along with cyber insurance coverage, you have access to experts to guide you through compliance with state breach notification laws to avoid fines and penalties.

Expenses that are typically covered include costs associated with:
  • Notifying customers about a data breach
  • Providing credit monitoring services as required by some states
  • Setting up a call center for affected individuals to obtain additional information and sign up for credit monitoring
  • Protecting your electronic data and computer systems from damage and computer attacks
  • Assisting with any associated legal expenses
