Cyber Liability Insurance

Small businesses are increasingly at risk for data theft, also known as data breach.  According to the Verizon 2013 Data Breach Investigations report (DBIR), organizations with fewer than 100 employees comprised 31% of data breach incidents investigated in 2012.  You can minimize your business's risk of data breach by taking these essential steps:

  1.  Secure sensitive customer, employee or patient data.
  2. Property dispose of sensitive data.
  3. Use password protection.
  4. Control physical access to your business computers.
  5. Encrypt data.
  6. Secure access to your network.
  7. Protect against viruses and malicious code ("malware").
  8. Keep your software and operating systems up to date.
  9. Verify the security controls of third parties that have access to your data.
