IT/Cyber/Digital Insurance 

 

The advance in computer technology and systems and the reliance on companies to transact their business affairs has led to a new range of potential insurance risks which need specialist cover.

Cyber and Crime cover for Solicitors - How safe are your clients funds?

The risk increases when services are outsourced such as Web Hosting, Cloud Technology and Facilities Management.

Cyber risks are generally excluded under a standard Business Interruption or liability insurance policy. Click here to read a number of claim examples and scenarios relating to cyber attacks and breaches.

We have made arrangements with a number of key Insurers to provide cover for potential cyber risks. Download our 'Mini Guide to Cyber Risks' here.

The cover available is in two parts:

  1. Own damage – exclusive for loss or damage to the computer system and can include the hardware, its failure and subsequent potential business interruption.
  2. Third party exposures where companies can be sued for loss of confidential information, breach of confidentiality, infringement of Data Protection Act and invasion of privacy.

Riskworks can assist you in obtaining the relevant cover to meet your risk exposures request a cyber proposal form now by calling Jon Davies on 01625 547754 and we can get to work on making sure you are adequately covered.

Cyber Essentials Scheme

Cyber Essentials is a governement backed, industry supported scheme to help organisations protect themselves against common cyber attacks.

The Cyber Essentials scheme has been developed by Government and industry to fulfil two functions.  It provides a clear statement of the basic controls all organisations should implement to mitigate the risk from common internet based threats, within the context of the Government's '10 Step to Cyber Security'.  Through the Assurance Framework it offers a mechanism for organisations to demonstrate to customers, investors, insurers and other that they have taken these essential precautions.

The government is working with industry partners as part of it's National Cyber Security Programme. This includes the Cyber Streetwise Campaign.
