What is Cyber Liability?
Cyber Liability covers your own exposure and liability claims from other parties following a data breach. Covers include the costs to recover data, loss of profits, cyber extortion, privacy breach remediation costs and associated penalties and liabilities surrounding infringement, invasion of privacy, denial of service and inadvertently forwarding viruses.
Why Do I need Cyber Liability Insurance?
In 2016, PWC’s Global Economic Crime Survey found that 65% of Australian organisations experienced cybercrime in the two years prior, with more than one in ten reporting losses of more than $1 million.
With the majority of losses occurring as a result of company employees, the introduction of mandatory data breach notification laws, and the risks not being covered by conventional insurance programs, correctly structured Cyber Liability cover is essential for today’s businesses.
Importantly, with Cyber Liability insurance, you get access to the expertise of the specialists who will assist you in the event of a cyber event.
