Cyber attacks are one of the biggest risks facing businesses today, so companies must ensure they have robust IT security and comprehensive Cyber cover in place.
Our Cyber policy protects against the range of risks associated with digital technology and provides critical support in the event of a cyber attack.
Today, every aspect of modern business relies heavily on information technology. Unfortunately, the more valuable data is handled digitally, the more incentive there is for cyber criminals – and the more exposed organisations are to the risks of network failure. Increasing legislation about an organisation’s responsibilities in the event of a cyber attack only adds to the burden for companies.
Our Cyber insurance provides wide-ranging cover you cannot get under any other type of policy, including Property, Liability and Crime policies. To make sure you are protected, our underwriters will work closely with you to create cover that suits your specific needs. We can also send in a consultant to audit your IT security and provide pointers on how to bolster it.
At your service, 24 hours a day
We’ve teamed up with data breach specialist ReSecure to provide 24-hour a day access to help in the event of a cyber attack. ReSecure can provide a forensics team to work out how the cyber breach happened and fix the problem, restoring digital operations quickly and effectively. It can also manage a PR response to minimise any impact on your reputation. Other useful services include legal advice – particularly relating to fulfilling regulatory requirements – and ID monitoring after a financial theft.
We have specialist Cyber underwriters across our offices in the UK, Europe and Canada who provide Cyber cover to companies all around the world. For companies with operations in multiple territories, we can write global Cyber programmes.
Keeping you informed
We also offer free access to our online portal – QBE E-Risk Hub – which offers a wide range of information on data breaches and cyber attacks, as well as how to protect yourself from them. We pride ourselves on providing continuous support throughout the policy period, rather than just before or after a breach.
Our Cyber policy is modular and can include cover for:
- Cyber Liability
- PR, crisis management, forensics and security specialist services
- Information and communication asset rectification costs
- Cyber business interruption costs
- Regulatory defence and penalties
- Privacy breach costs cover
- Dishonesty of employees
- Cyber extortion
