Protecting your Business from Cyber and Data Crime

Are you putting your business and clients at risk?

As the threat of cyber crime increases, it’s more important than ever that you protect yourself, your business and your clients.

Cyber Crime and Fraud Insurance is designed to protect businesses from internet-based risks and risks relating to information technology infrastructure. It can also limit the damage caused by a successful attempt to access your business or confidential data.

From data recovery and business interruption cover to payment of costs associated with regulatory investigations and civil penalties levied by regulators, Cyber Crime and Fraud Insurance provides protection.

Do you need Cyber Crime and Fraud Insurance?

If your business handles sensitive customer data – such as names, addresses or banking information – or you are reliant on computer systems, you should be protecting your customer data against security breaches.

You should also have protection against the financial loss that you will suffer if your customers’ confidential, identifiable information is lost, stolen or leaked.

Cyber and Data Security and GDPR: what you should do

From 25 May 2018, the enforcement of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) means that your business can be fined up to €20m or 4% of your turnover (whichever is the greater) for breaches of your customers’ data. Here’s what you need to do now:

  • Appoint a senior manager with some expertise to take responsibility for your cyber and data security and draw up an information security policy
  • Make sure you understand your obligations to notify the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) within 72 hours (and, in some instances, the individuals affected) of personal data breaches
  • Consider whether the confidential data you hold should be pseudonymised and encrypted

What to do if you suffer a cyber attack: 3-step checklist

  1. Log and monitor any suspicious activity This can help to inform you as soon as a breach happens, giving you a chance to respond quickly and limit potential damage. It’s also useful to have a trail of activity carried out by the hacker.
  2. Regularly back up your data This will make it easier to access data – reducing downtime – in the event of a breach. But be aware that there’s a risk that you may restore the same vulnerabilities which caused the breach in the first place – consult a specialist on how to mitigate this risk.
  3. Inform your cyber and data security insurance provider If you don’t have cyber and data protection insurance, Towergate can create a policy tailored to your needs that provides cover for a range of different cyber-attack scenarios.
