Cyber Security Liability Insurance


In one of our previous posts Cyber Security: Is Your Business Safe? , we discussed cyber security weak spots, and the different things you can do to protect your Ohio business and your clients.


Most of us whether in business or not are more vulnerable on the Internet than we may realize. In the case of businesses, however, it's not just the company's information that is vulnerable, but also the personal information of all its trusting customers. Consider the breach of security to which retail giant Target fell victim in 2013: millions of the company's customers had their credit card numbers stolen. If Target is vulnerable, who isn't?

Taking all the precautions listed in our last post does not guarantee your Ohio business is completely safe in the cyber security world. With cyber security liability insurance, however, you and your business will be financially protected from claims that may result from a breach of your cyber security.

What is Cyber Security Liability Insurance?

Cyber Security Liability Insurance is designed to cover your company from a variety of potential incidents, including the loss of income due to the business interruption that may come form cyber security issues, and protection against mitigation that could come from stolen client data. For example, if one of your clients sues you because a third party has obtained his personal information, you will have coverage for damages. Other areas of coverage include:

  • Loss of digital assets
  • Cyber extortion
  • Cyber terrorism
  • Security event costs
  • Customer notification expenses in the event that security has been breached
  • Expenses associated with interruption to business
