Data breaches and cybercrimes are growing, and these incidents can cost
your business in major fines and legal fees. Large organizations can suffer
security breaches, but so can small businesses. A data breach can risk
your computer system, but it can also harm your reputation and expose
your employees and customers to the risk of fraud or identity theft.
Cyber liability insurance can protect your business in the event of a breach.
What is Cyber Liability Insurance?
Cyber liability insurance is insurance coverage for your business’s
liability in a data breach. Hackers may breach your computer system to
gain access to sensitive customer information, including payment information,
social security numbers, names, addresses, driver’s license numbers,
and health records. Your general liability protects your business from
liability in the event of an injury or property damage resulting from
your products, services, or operations. Cyber liability insurance covers
what general liability insurance does not—your business’s
liability for stolen personal information.
Cyber liability insurance covers:
- Legal fees and expenses
- Notifying customers of the data breach
- Restoring stolen identities
- Recovering compromised data
- Repairing damaged computer systems
Many states require businesses to notify customers about breaches involving
identifying information, which can be an expensive process. Often, businesses
will also offer free credit monitoring in an effort to repair damaged
customer relations and regain their reputation. This too can be quite costly.
