What is Cyber Liability Insurance?
If hackers or cybercriminals infiltrate your business network, take over your website, hold data hostage, or steal sensitive client information, you can be held liable for the incident besides having to take care of the recovery costs. Cyber Liability Insurance, also known as Cyber-security Insurance, helps businesses recover from, and manage costs associated with such an event.
In a recent article by PCMag, the average cost for data breach for Canadian businesses was an astounding $4.74 million, hence the importance of a robust Cyber Liability Insurance.
What is Not Covered?
It is quite important to understand whether you need to add on extra cyber liability insurance coverage.
Below are some add-ons you might want to consider:
1. Acts and/or omissions of third parties: Coverage in the event that a claim arises because of the actions of one of your vendors.
2. Data Restoration Costs: If you manage large amounts of sensitive data, consider adding this coverage.
3. Failure to protect data: This coverage would protect you in case a lost laptop or USB key results in the release of sensitive data.
4. Regulatory fines and penalties: A significant breach could result in regulatory investigations, fines or penalties.
5. Business interruption coverage: Can cover the loss of revenue as a result a data breach.

Who needs Cyber Liability Insurance?
Canadian business owners may think they don’t need Cyber Liability coverage unless they are in the tech industry. The reality is that any business is at risk of a cyber attack. If your business handles any of the following, you should consider a cyber liability insurance:
- Customer payment, credit, or bank account information
- Medical information
- Social Insurance Numbers (SIN) or driver’s license numbers
- Customer names, email addresses, phone numbers, and addresses
Retailers, healthcare organizations, and financial service providers are especially at risk because they handle large amounts of sensitive and lucrative client information and because they often lack the technical sophistication to have robust security measures.
