    Cyber InsuranceFAQs



    What is Cyber Insurance?

    Cyber Insurance is the recovery payment made to your business after a cyber attack has been made and a financial loss has occurred. The financial loss can be seen in many ways, such as damage to brand reputation, loss of client information, the recovery cost to replace equipment, hire technicians and investigators. Unfortunately there is no insurance that can prevent an attack, but our Cyber Insurance can keep your mind at rest, that if an attack was to happen, that your company will still be standing and moving forward, as the financial burden will not be on your shoulders but the insurance company’s responsibility to pay your claim, if you are fully covered in the insured event.

    Why do I need Cyber Insurance?

    Although Cyber Insurance won’t prevent the actual attack on your business, it can help reimburse the costs of the damage caused to your company. This means you can have the confidence that if you had taken out Cyber Insurance through a reputable broker who is able to ensure that you are comprehensively covered based on our situation, then you will have nothing to worry about regarding the financial hit if a cyber attack was to take place. This does not mean that you should take preventative measures lightly, as actually having cyber attack preventions in place could potentially reduce your cyber insurance premium.

    What does Cyber Insurance cover?

    As Cyber Insurance is relatively new cover only breaching our ears around 2005, there is no standard for underwriting these policies as there could be so many variations of attacks and also the damage it can cause. However, below are some of the most common reasons for a claim to fund the recovery action:

    Investigation: The costs of hiring experts to determine the source of the problem, why the attack happened, if any preventative measures could have stopped the attack should had they been implemented beforehand, and what can be done now to prevent such attack happening again.

    Business losses: These could be costs around repairing or replacing physical systems, business interruption, server downtime, loss of data, repairing reputation damage, and the costs involved around managing the crisis, such as mitigating the negative impact on clients.

    Privacy and notification: It is a requirement by law to notify customers whose data has been breached or even may have been accessed by the cyber attack. This may be a simple email, a letter, account notification, or even a recorded phone call.

    Lawsuits and extortion: This may include legal disputes with the release of confidential information and intellectual property, as well as regulatory fines with being under secure against today’s minimum standards. The demand for payment from such attacks as ransomware can also be covered in this cyber insurance category.

    How does Cyber Insurance work?

    After the breach of your data from a cyber attack, you are able to claim against your cyber cover to reimburse you for the costs that you are insured against, such as investigation, lawsuits, equipment replacement, and other areas which you are covered under your policy. Preventative measures need to be installed to prevent the occurrence of such an event happening again, all of which could be covered under your cyber insurance policy.

    What does an insurance company look for when deciding cyber coverage?

    An insurance company will be looking for risk preventative measures that have been put in place such as a creation of a cyber risk profile, which determines the strengths and weaknesses of the business, and the action taken to protect the more vulnerable areas. A business will also be assessed by the level of employee education and training that has been implemented to raise awareness of phishing and social engineering cyber attacks.

    These are just a couple areas of cyber insurance assessment, however, in today’s times a company should be seeking out cyber protection agencies that can strengthen the protection of the business and highlight their weaknesses. Ethical hackers should be hired on a regular basis to execute test attacks, seeking out any areas that could be exploited by real cyber attackers that could cause the company a lot of damage.

    Does the policy cover social engineering as well as network attacks?

    Yes, our cyber policy can include cover against social engineering and phishing attacks, as well as attacks on the actual network infrastructure. A successful cyber attack could have come from an email that seemed to be trustworthy by one of your employees, and then once opened, initiated a virus across the network that gave access to sensitive business and client information to the cyber attackers.

    It is vital that you have such additional cyber cover in place, as these type of attacks are getting harder and harder to distinguish from the real trusted sources. To prevent such occurrences happening, it is vital that employee training is carried out by professionals to raise awareness of such attacks, with a clear procedure in place to prevent and also mitigate any unfortunate confrontations with such attempted cyber attacks.

    Does the cover apply to first and third parties?

    We do offer cyber protection that can extend to third parties such as one of your service providers. The cyber attack could have actually come from a third-party service provider, to which you will need to ensure that you have cover for in case they don’t have the right cyber insurance in place to also pay for the damage they had caused letting in a cyber attack to your business.

    On this note, it is very important that you ensure that anyone that has direct access to your internal network who is a third-party has comprehensive protection in the event of an unfortunate cyber attack on your company’s network. Although this is usually a required regulation anyway for certain industry service providers these days, especially in the IT support sector, it doesn’t hurt to ask the question to ensure your pre and post cyber protection.

    Does the policy cover non-malicious attacks taken by an employee?

    We do offer cyber protection that can extend to third parties such as one of your service providers. The cyber attack could have actually come from a third-party service provider, to which you will need to ensure that you have cover for in case they don’t have the right cyber insurance in place to also pay for the damage they had caused letting in a cyber attack to your business.

    Does the policy include time frame restrictions from Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs)?

    Yes, we are able to provide cyber cover against non-malicious attacks caused by an employee. Your employees could be your best friend one minute and then the next because of a disagreement they could cause some real damage to your business as they have direct access to your sensitive company and client information or at least more access than a total stranger. So depending on what company network files and client data they have access to could directly correlate to the potential power they have to enforce a lot of negative action should they wish to acts in such a way against your business.

    It is vital that you are covered in these kinds of situations, as being underinsured in such an event could be very costly for your company to rectify.
