The need for cyber protection conjures headlines of huge conglomerates with breached customer data and large cities being held “hostage” by crypto currency-seeking hackers. While these instances are true and indeed frightening, the need for Cyber insurance extends to any business owner who accepts a credit card, uses a computer or has a bank account. And yes, cyber protection is especially crucial for businesses that conduct commerce online. From the simplest transactions and information to the most complex systems and software, every business is exposed to digital risk.
While we most often think of the harm hackers and hardware failures can cause, the potential for digital loss is broad. Every day, cyber damages include data destruction, theft or extortion, service denial and interruption, privacy and identity compromise, online defamation, and the losses caused by information technology infrastructure exposure. Additionally, one of the greatest causes for concern is loss associated with lapses in internal security protocols.
