Cyber Event – A Digital Fire Waiting to Happen

Cyber EventMost businesses purchase fire insurance because they are aware of just how devastating and disruptive this type of event can be.

A cyber attack on your data, however, can be every bit as devastating as a fire and recent statistics are alarming.

Government statistics indicate that a staggering 693,053 businesses have experienced a cybercrime event in recent years. This figure represents 33% of all businesses and 60% of small to medium sized businesses.

Of the reported cyber attacks on business, 40% experienced business disruption, 29% information loss, 29% productivity loss; 25% revenue loss and 4% equipment damage.

The average cost of cyber crime per business was $276,323, of which 53% is on detection and recovery services.

Just as business interruption cover protects against a fire, Cyber Event Protection Cover provides for a reduction in revenue and the associated costs to manage the impact of a Cyber Event.

Modern protection needed for doing business in the modern world

Cyber security is a growing concern for businesses.  Protecting all elements of your IT infrastructure, such as hardware, software, networks and facilities against a cyber event is a business risk worth mitigating.

The risk of cyber attacks and data breaches is increasing in both severity and frequency.

Global interconnectedness and exponential growth of web enabled devices and social media has seen a related increase in cyber criminal and activist behaviour.

The danger exists regardless of the size of your business.  Handling customer or transaction data, you run the risk that a data breach could give rise to a material financial cost to your business or significant costs relating to third party claims.
