What is Cyber Insurance and Who Can It Benefit?

If you are a business owner, cyber insurance may be something you should consider purchasing.

At Martin Insurance Team, serving the greater Evergreen Park, IL region, we want to help you learn more about cyber insurance. Read on to get started. 

What Is Cyber Insurance?

Cyber attacks can be costly. If you suffer a data breach, you may have to pay for credit monitoring services for all of your clients or customers’ information that was impacted by the breach. Additionally, you may have to pay to upgrade your security after that happens. If you suffer a ransomware attack, you may have to pay a large amount of ransom to get your protected information back. And there are other types of cybersecurity incidents, including malware attacks, can negatively affect your business. Cyber insurance helps to offset the costs related to these types of cyber attacks. 

Who Can Benefit From Cyber Insurance? 

These days, nearly every business has some protected information that is being stored. This may include personal customer information or protected business secrets. If you have information that is being stored in a cloud or network, you can benefit from purchasing cyber insurance. 

Cyber insurance is designed to protect your business against any losses it may have suffered as a result of cyber attacks. If your business has a protected network or protected data, you could benefit from cyber insurance.
