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.
As reported 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.
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.
