Stories about cyber security and companies getting hacked are a constant in the news cycle. Both small and large businesses are at risk of attack by cyber criminals. All businesses that maintain data on their customers or employees have a duty to protect that information. Say your organization does everything possible to prevent a data breach or cyber attack, but one still happens. You will need an insurance solution designed to help you respond to all types of cyber incidents including threats of unauthorized intrusion, damage to data and systems from a computer attack and cyber-related litigation.
