What You Get with Cyber Liability Insurance

Cyber Liability Insurance goes beyond the coverage provided by General Liability Insurance, which mainly protects a business in case of bodily injury to individuals or damages to others’ property incurred on your company’s property. This insurance prepares a company to be able to mitigate the threats to a company’s financial well-being if they suffer a cyberattack. With this insurance, businesses will receive:

  • Liability coverage within 24 hours
  • Service Agreement with no underwriting required
  • Easy online self-service for certificates
  • Assistance with claims
  • 24/7 crisis management, including access to one of the nation's top cyber security law firms

How Does Cyber Liability Insurance Work?

You’ll be covered under any of the following circumstance, so you can still meet payroll obligations and bill payments.

  • Interruption of Business Operations

    If you require legal fees stemming from a civil action, face regulatory fines and penalties, or mandatory forensic examination.

  • Customer Notifications

    Reaching out to inform your entire customer base can be time-consuming and expensive, especially if you use regular mail.

  • Security Updates

    Services will be available to re-certify compliance with PCI Security Standards.

  • Rebuilding Reputation

    Crisis management expenses could include the need for public relations assistance and credit monitoring.
