Benefits of Cyber Liability Insurance

Cyber liability insurance is quickly becoming one of the most sought-after commercial insurance policies and for good reason.

Protect Your Business

Cyber liability insurance helps protect businesses against liability related to communicating or conducting business online. It can help you recover from an attack by covering legal costs, costs associated with data restoration and repairs, etc.

Previously, cyber liability insurance was aimed at large companies and enterprises due to the high cost of premiums and the complexity involved in determining a business’s security risk. Fortunately, times and technology have changed, and now businesses of all sizes can benefit from Cyber Liability Insurance.

While the coverage can vary based on several factors, here are some of the  typical threats that cyber liability insurance addresses:

Cyber Liability Insurance Can Help with These Costs:

  • Restoring or Replacing Lost Data
  • Notifying Affected Parties
  • Extortion Payments
  • Reimbursing Lost Income
  • Fines and Penalties
  • Lawsuit Legal Defense
  • Credit Monitoring
  • Repairing Reputation

It’s Not About If It Happens, It’s About When

According to Kaspersky, 1 in 5 businesses have experienced data loss or exposure due to a cyber attack. Small businesses are often targeted because they generally have less robust cybersecurity protocols and frankly, are an easy target.

An Attack Costs A Lot More Than Just Data Lost

According to IBM, the average cost of a data breach in 2020 was $3.86 million, which includes $1.52 million in lost business, $1.11 million in detection and escalation costs, and $990,000 in response costs. In 2022, the average total cost increased to $4.24 million.

How Would a Cyber Breach Affect Your Business?

According to a recent report by Fundera, 43% of all data breaches involve small and medium-sized businesses and 60% of small businesses that are victims of a cyber attack go out of business within 6 months.
