Cyber Liability Insurance helps businesses survive data breaches and cyber attacks by paying for recovery expenses. When cybercriminals infiltrate a network, hold data hostage, or acquire sensitive data, the company they steal from can be held liable for the incident. That's where Cyber Insurance comes in. It can often pay for customer notification, credit monitoring, legal fees, and fines after a business experiences a breach.

Many small-business owners may not think they need Cyber Liability coverage, but small businesses are vulnerable to security threats.

You may want to have this protection if your business handles:
∙ Customer payment, credit, or bank account information
∙ Medical information
∙ Social Security or driver's license numbers
∙ Customer names, email addresses, phone numbers, and addresses

Retailers, healthcare organizations, and financial service providers (like accountants) are especially hot targets for breaches and attacks. But all it takes is one employee mistake, unauthorized access by a former employee or vendor, an unshredded document, a skilled hacker, or a stolen laptop to trigger a breach. It can happen to any business, so cyber insurance is a smart safeguard.

    First-Party vs. Third-Party Cyber Liability Insurance

    The type of data breach insurance you need depends on the work your business does. Below are key things to keep in mind when considering which type of Cyber Liability Insurance to buy.

    First-party response may cover

    • Legal and forensic services to determine whether a breach occurred and to assist with regulatory compliance.
    • Notification of affected customers and employees, including costs such as letter preparation and mailing.
    • Customer credit and fraud monitoring services.
    • Crisis management and public relations to educate your customers about the breach and rebuild your company's reputation.
    • Good faith advertising.
    • Business interruption expenses, such as costs for additional staff, rented or leased equipment, or use of third-party services.
    • Cyber extortion reimbursement for credible threats to introduce malicious code, to pharm and phish customer systems, or to corrupt your computer system.

    Third-party defense and liability may cover

    • Judgments, civil awards, or settlements you're legally obligated to pay after a data breach.
    • Electronic media liability, including infringement of copyright, domain name, trade name, service mark, or slogan on an intranet or Internet site.
    • Potential coverage for employee privacy liability as well as network security and privacy liability.

    They have always been responsive to our needs, whether it's adding a driver to our auto insurance, finding discounts to help us keep our premiums reasonable, bundling our auto and homeowner's, etc. They returns calls and emails quickly and knows their stuff. When we bought an RV on a holiday weekend we were able to get them on the phone and arrange for the required insurance before we drove off the dealer's lot. Excellent customer service!

    Gino is a great agent. He's taken the time to help me adjust my policy when I moved and needed additional coverage. He came back with the right answers within hours. I trust him.

    I have been a client for years. I get personal service for the same rates I would get from the budget insurance companies out there where I would deal with a different person every time.
