Gone are the days of paper books, files and Rolodex contacts. The digital age is in full force. Technology has made our lives, in business as well as personal, far more efficient. With that efficiency and ease unfortunately also comes risk.
Computer networks, no matter how well secured, can potentially fall prey to hackers. Once accessed, client and private business information can be breached. Potential loss from cyber security breaches can cost your company dearly.
The average data breach costs a company $154 per record. With a database of just 10,000 clients that is a potential breach of $1,540,000.00 in a single hack. Is your company ready?
It is important to be prepared. Not only prepared with proper security but also backing that up with cyber security insurance. This type of insurance transfers some of the financial risks of a breach away from the business and over to the insurer. Cyber security insurance typically covers damage to digital assets, business interruptions, network damage and if stipulated, damage to your reputation.
