Cyber Liability Insurance – What You Need to Know

Cyber liability insurance can be a lifeline in the event of a major incident or breach. Cyber incidents rose 35% in 2020 with data breaches costing businesses an average of $4.24 million per year, resulting in cyber insurance premiums jumping up by 50-100%. Modern challenges like phishing, ransomware, remote workforces, stolen credentials, and the use of personal devices demand increasingly sophisticated cybersecurity practices. Organizations must secure against the unknown and advancing threats while striking a balance between proactive and reactive measures. No doubt, cyber insurance is a hot topic right now. Do you need it? How do you qualify for it? How much will it cost?

With the increase in data incidents comes an increase in the demand for protection through cyber liability insurance. Like health and car insurance, cyber insurance is a line of coverage designed to mitigate losses from cyber incidents. An incident may cause organizations to suffer data breaches, network damage, stolen backups, reputational damage, and the disruption of daily operations.
