What we offer
What is Cyber & Data Risks Insurance?
With businesses becoming ever more reliant on technology and storing an increasing amount of personal data, the risks and subsequent fallout from a hacking event continue to grow. The costs associated with handling a system and data breach can extend to lost revenue, a damaged reputation with both clients and suppliers, notification costs, legal and regulatory costs, not to mention the associated business disruption.
