Cyber Liability

Protect your clients with Cyber Liability Coverage

It should be easy to convince insureds that cyber liability insurance is important. Today’s business rely so much on connectivity and most types of businesses are susceptible. The news is full of stories of network extortion and phishing attacks. Politicians, the government, Fortune 500 companies all come under attack. Perhaps small business owners do not think they are targets. Maybe they think they are protected by antivirus software, their firewall or just by being careful. Whatever the reasons, the risk is real and the results can be costly, especially for small business. Health related offices for example are among the most targeted business affected by cyber attacks.

Did you know that the average cyber related loss is over $200,000? Without coverage, that size loss can put your client out of business.
