Security cover

Its important to insure yourself against cyber risks, especially if your business operates online or you handle large amounts of information.

Why do I need Cyber Security insurance?

The backbone of modern business is IT (Information Technology), which derives most of the key back-office and middle-office functions. Most companies use websites as their showcase of the products.
All technology is exposed to very degrees of cyber attacks. Whilst there are financial losses, the biggest impact is usually reputational damage, especially if your business:

  • Holds sensitive customer details such as names, addresses and bank information.
  • Relies heavily on IT systems and websites to conduct their business.

Traditional insurance policies may cover elements of cyber cover, but they are not sufficient to cover all technology usage in a modern business. However, with our specialist cyber insurance policies, we provide bespoke cover tailored to suit your exact needs.

What does our Cyber Security Insurance cover?

Our cyber insurance covers businesses for losses relating to damage to, or loss of information from, IT systems and networks.

  • Theft of money or digital assets through theft of equipment or electronic theft

Third-party insurance

  • Security and privacy breaches, and the investigation, defence costs and civil damages associated with them.
  • Multi-media liability, to cover investigation, defence costs and civil damages arising from defamation, breach of privacy or negligence in publication in electronic or print media.
