Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What does Cyber Insurance cover?

    First-Party Coverage helps cover expenses when your network is hacked or your data is stolen and can include coverage for:

    • Cyber extortion payments
    • Hiring experts to investigate breaches and assist with regulatory compliance
    • Notifying affected customers
    • Customer credit and fraud monitoring services
    • Crisis management and public relations
    • Business interruption expenses, such as the cost of hiring additional staff, renting equipment, or purchasing third-party services

    Third-party cyber insurance offers protection when a client sues your company for failing to prevent a breach at the client’s business and can include:

    • Legal defense costs
    • Out of court settlements with clients
    • Judgments you are obligated to pay after a data breach
    • Other court costs.
  2. Why does my business need Cyber Insurance?

    When criminals infiltrate a network, steal data, or hold data hostage, the business they steal from can be legally and financially liable. As a business, you are responsible for your cyber security. One data breach can end up costing you thousands of dollars in customer notification expenses, legal fees, fines or settlements.

  3. What are the most common types of cyber attacks?

    Malware is malicious software that hackers use to bug, steal and control your data and systems through link clicks and attachment downloads.

    Phishing involves the use of fraudulent emails to steal information or encourage malware downloads.

    DDoS (Distributed Denial of Service) involves bombarding a business’ server with multiple simultaneous requests to stop it from fulfilling legitimate requests.

  4. Does my Errors & Omissions policy cover me for cyber attacks?

    It does not – but this is the #1 reason business owners think they don’t need Cyber Insurance.

  5. Does all Cyber Insurance cover hacker ransom or extortion?

    The short answer is not always – it’s something your broker should clearly outline and discuss with you. It provides coverage for extortion related expenses such as hiring a consultant or negotiator and repair costs if the recovered data is locked or damaged.
