Why should I have Cyber Insurance?

In today's digital landscape, businesses in the UK face a growing threat of cyber attacks and data breaches that can lead to devastating financial losses and reputational damage, and that is why having cyber insurance is no longer an option but a necessity.

Cyber insurance provides essential protection, offering financial safeguards against the costs associated with data breaches, including legal expenses, customer notification, and credit monitoring services. It also covers business interruption, ensuring that you can recover lost income and additional expenses incurred during a cyber attack.

With the ever-increasing risks and regulatory requirements, cyber insurance not only provides financial support but also offers peace of mind, allowing you to focus on running your business while mitigating the potentially crippling impact of cyber incidents.

    What are the main important features of Cyber insurance cover?

    A cyber insurance policy can provide several benefits to businesses in addressing the top 10 needs identified for cyber insurance coverage in the UK:

    • Data breach coverage: A cyber insurance policy can help cover the costs associated with a data breach, including forensic investigations, customer notification, credit monitoring services, and potential legal liabilities.
    • Cyber liability coverage: In the event of third-party claims arising from a cyber incident, cyber insurance can provide coverage for legal expenses, settlements, and damages, reducing the financial burden on the business.
    • Business interruption coverage: Cyber insurance can help compensate for lost income and additional expenses incurred during a business interruption caused by a cyber attack or system failure, allowing the business to recover and resume operations more quickly.
    • Cyber extortion coverage: A cyber insurance policy can provide coverage for costs related to responding to ransomware attacks or cyber extortion attempts, including ransom payments, negotiation services, and professional guidance.
    • Network security liability coverage: If a business faces a lawsuit or claims related to a network security failure, cyber insurance can help cover legal defence costs, settlements, and damages awarded to third parties.
    • Privacy liability coverage: Cyber insurance can assist businesses in managing the financial consequences of privacy violations, such as non-compliance with GDPR or other privacy regulations, by covering legal expenses, fines, and penalties.
    • Crisis management and incident response: A cyber insurance policy often includes access to experts who can help the business navigate through a cyber incident effectively. This can include incident response teams, public relations support, legal counsel, and guidance on managing the aftermath of a breach.
    • Reputational harm coverage: Cyber insurance can help cover the costs associated with reputation management efforts, including public relations campaigns, advertising, and communication strategies aimed at restoring trust and mitigating reputational damage after a cyber incident.
    • Social engineering coverage: If a business falls victim to social engineering attacks like phishing or impersonation, cyber insurance can provide coverage for financial losses resulting from such fraudulent schemes.
    • Regulatory and legal compliance coverage: A cyber insurance policy can assist in covering the expenses related to regulatory investigations, fines, and penalties resulting from non-compliance with data protection laws or other regulations following a cyber incident. This can include legal defence costs and financial settlements.

    What a lovely team of people they have here. Nothing is to much effort. We have been dealing with Julie and Vicki mostly, and each year I enjoy our chats before all the hard work is done to secure us a reasonable renewal! They have been particularity efficient and supportive whilst we processed a claim, and I would have no hesitation recommending them. Great work guys!

    I had Julie sorting my public liability insurance for few years now, she is so professional and quick to remind me when the insurance is coming up for renewal. The insurance comes up to less then I paid for the first year when my income was much smaller then is now. Also it gives me peace of mind knowing that I am covered if things happen. I would strongly recommend Cascade Insurance to everybody who needs insurance.

    Everyone at Cascade Insurance are amazing. It really isn't easy to get fleet insurance for a charity especially with a few claims on the vehicles! The team worked really hard to get us the best possible deal, gave great advice and managed to save us some money, always handy! We have used there service for a few years now and will continue to do so. I highly recommend their services.

    I have worked with Julie and Cascade Insurance for over a year now and having worked with other brokers in the past I can say cascade has been the best. Julie quick grasped my business and asked me questions other brokers hadn’t. This meant that we found several areas for improvement. The main reason I have found for working with a broker is to have someone who can answer questions about policies (and find good coverage) but over the last year as odd questions have come up cascade have been able to give almost instant replies even when there have been unusual circumstances. I would certainly recommend cascade insurance to other people.

    If you want advice about a business or cyber policy then you can contact Cascade Insurance Services on 01233 512548, we are happy to advise and discuss your own bespoke requirements.
