 Cyber and Privacy Liability - A Growing Business Threat

Virtually every organization faces data and cyber risk especially those that rely on technology to do business. By 2021, it is estimated that 35 Billion devices will be installed worldwide. With so many connected devices, data and cyber risk is an exposure that modern businesses cannot escape. When cyber attacks like data breaches and hacks occur, they can result in devastating damage. Businesses have to deal with the financial impact on business interruption, lost revenue, data retrieval and recreation, fines and litigation, and the negative press your business receives. On average, it will cost a U.S. organization $225 per record breached. You can reduce this exposure and cost by taking extra precaution, providing training and supporting with the correct insurance solution. Check out this video to learn more about this insurance option:

Cyber exposures aren't going away and, in fact, continue to escalate every day. It's not if you'll be a victim of a data breach, but when. Businesses need to be prepared in the event that a cyber attack strikes. To learn more about cyber liability insurance request a quote or contact us today!

Data and Cyber Security

What kind of damage can a ransomware attack have on my business?

A ransomware attack on your business can cause a lot more damage than simply paying the ransom itself. The attack ripples through your business and includes business interruption, reputational harm, a potential data breach, system rebuilding, and much more. 

Just the facts:
  • In late 2020 70% of attacks included threats to leak information, leaving businesses exposed to 3rd party liability due to the compromise of clients, partners or employee sensitive data.  
  • In Q4 of 2020 on average businesses experienced 21 days of downtime, leading to lost revenue.
  • The cost per record exposed in a ransomware attack that leads to a breach is estimated at $146 per record, including reputational damage and credit monitoring services.
  • The average cost of a data breach in 2020 was $716,000.
  • While the average cost of a ransom payment has decreased, the cost of recovery has more than doubled.

Having the right cyber solution in place helps immediately with ransomware attacks and gives access to a team to manage the breach, forensics, and ransom experts to negotiate the ransom. Plus, there are additional financial resources to help your business return to normal operations as quickly as possible.
