Why is Cyber Insurance important for your Sunshine Coast business?

Whether you build information systems for organisations, process payroll online or manage something as simple as a social media page, chances are, you are not immune from the dangers of cyber attacks or serious privacy breaches.

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

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.

Without Cyber Insurance, you expose yourself to significant financial losses should your digital situation turn for the worse.

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 Caloundra or Rainbow Beach or anywhere in between - whatever the size or location, every business needs a form of cyber insurance protection. Whether you manage a professional services business, an industrial business or a business that’s based purely online, all organisations will have a digital network of some description.

For example, a digital exposure can be as simple as employee records being held on your work computer, or having an online contact form. In the event any personal records are exposed, you are obliged to notify the affected individuals.

One of the biggest digital threats to Australian businesses today are phishing scams that encourage users to click on a link which leads to your digital network being encrypted. The cyber criminal will then demand a ransom for the key to unencrypt your data.

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.
