Cyber Insurance BC

Cyber Risk loss exposures are an evolving area of concern for business owners from a business risk management perspective.  Organizations face new risks arising from network security issues, privacy breaches and E-commerce. Basically internet risks are increasing at a rapid rate. These risks are dynamic and can affect a wide variety of businesses and industries.

In addition, in the globally based world-wide web, national boundaries do not necessarily exist, giving rise to concern that cyber liability risks extend beyond our borders. Even though a company is a local BC based organization, they could still face potential threats from overseas.

With the rising frequency of high-profile data breaches highlighting the growing risk of Cyber related exposures, there is a growing need for insurance products to properly protect against losses stemming from cyber-attacks and internet related risks. Traditional insurance policies do not typically cover these Cyber Risk exposures or do so in a very limited way. Cyber Risk insurance however provides protection against these complex and evolving risks.

  • Network Security and Privacy Liability
  • Cyber Extortion
  • Business Interruption
