Cyber Insurance

Cyber Insurance Specialists

On the 22nd February 2018, Australia’s data breach notification laws came into force.  Now is the time to consider how cyber insurance could be a useful and cost-effective new part of your risk management plan. 

Your Existing Cover Probably Won’t Cut It

You may have existing cover – for example business insurance or management liability, but it is unlikely that any such insurance will cover losses arising from a cyber security breach.  In fact, some general policies contain specific exclusions for cyber-related losses.

What is Cyber Insurance?

Cyber insurance offers coverage for, or mitigation of, certain specified, limited cyber risks.
