Why Cyber Insurance?

Every business that depends on digital technologies (such as emails, databases and websites) is at risk of a cyber attack. With increasing reports of some of the world’s largest companies and institutions being victims to cyber attacks, it’s clear that businesses that rely on any form of digital technology are not 100% safe. No matter their level of security.

Cyber Insurance is a cost-effective way to protect your business should your cyber security systems fail you. For a nominal cost, Cyber Insurance can provide you with protection against financial losses should the situation turn for the worse.

Cyber attacks do not discriminate against the size of the business they are attacking - everyone with a digital presence can be at risk. Data shows that Australians are reporting cyber crime every 10 minutes.

Whether it’s a task as simple as checking emails or as complex as building information systems for organisations, chances are, your company is not immune to the dangers of cyber attacks or serious privacy breaches.

Whether it be fraud, a DDoS attack on your website, the theft and exploitation of your password, the unauthorised access and manipulation of your clients’ data, or another threat altogether, Gold Coast businesses have the risk of being a victim of a cyber attack on a day-to-day basis.

The challenge is finding the most suitable Cyber Insurance policies for your business. As business insurance brokers, we’ll do the hard work for you. We’ll use our extensive insurer network and experience in the industry to help you find suitable policies while working with you to reduce premiums.

What is Cyber Insurance?

A Cyber Insurance policy is designed to protect your business from a breach of your digital network and the resultant financial loss that could include:

Losses payable to others for breaching their right to privacy

Financial losses arising from cyber theft

Loss of your company profits

Fines and penalties payable for breaching privacy regulation laws

Who needs Cyber Risk Insurance?

Whether you’re in Alberton, Surfers Paradise or anywhere else in the Gold Coast, most businesses need some form of Cyber Insurance protection.

Highly destructive cyber attacks could occur from something as simple as a fake link in a text message or Zoom meeting invite; they could also be sophisticated enough to infiltrate highly secure national institutions. As businesses become more and more dependent on technology, Cyber Insurance can leave you with peace of mind.

Do I already have Cyber Insurance?

Traditional insurance policies such as Professional Indemnity Insurance and Public Liability Insurance specifically exclude claims that arise from a data breach including ransomware. A comprehensive Cyber Risk Insurance policy protects your business from the financial fallout of a cyber attack on your business.

Cyber Insurance Gold Coast: what is covered?

Additional expenses required to manage a cyber event response, such as notification costs, legal costs, crisis management costs and forensic IT costs to establish the cause of the breach and a remediation plan.
