Cyber Liability insurance is specially designed to tackle the problems associated with your computer systems, websites and emails. These issues can extend from your misuse of material, through mis-handling of data to loss and damage caused by viruses or hacking.
Not only do we provide practical support to help you deal with the immediate situation but also help with costs associated with advertising and customer contact to reinstate any loss to reputation.
In this modern world it seems almost impossible to run a business without using computers in some way or another but what happens when something goes wrong?
We all know of the constant battle against computer viruses so imagine how easy it would be for you to be targeted by one which you then inadvertently transfer via your email or website to customers or other businesses.
Employees are carefully chosen but even the best of them can have a bad day and can share some inappropriate comments about a customer or competitor or send an email with confidential information to the wrong person.
And then there are hackers who will, for fun or money, choose to hack your site causing damage or total loss, changing content or leaving inappropriate pop ups. It's happened to thousands of businesses, small to large, including the NHS and it can certainly happen to you.
So, if your business has a website, stores electronic data or uses email to correspond then you should consider this protection.
Having a comprehensive policy in place provides you with peace of mind, meaning that if the worst does happen, the best are there to help.
The cost for Cyber and Data liability is as little as £40 per year or £3.33 per month plus tax. When you think that's about the same as a cup of coffee each month to keep your business safe from malicious attack, then it's worth every penny.
You are also able to choose the cover level to suit your needs
£15,000 £40 / €40 + tax
£25,000 £75 / €75 + tax
£50,000 £120 / €120 + tax

Again, two options here:
1. If you are obtaining a new insurance policy with Cyber & Data Liability add-on, you will be able to choose payment by monthly instalments.
2. If you want to add this cover mid-term, you will be required to pay the whole amount of the add-on product.
Yes. With this policy in place we will be able to indemnify you in such an unfortunate scenario. The appropriate level of cover will also provide you with compensation for the advertising costs aimed to restore your reputation following such a claim.
If you have received a notification for a claim, please get in touch as soon as possible.
Short answer, yes.
Long answer, if you happen to transfer a computer virus to someone with whom you do business OR if a hacker attack was specifically targeted at you, we will pay you the necessary costs and expenses for the damages you incurred.
This policy would not cover any claims, including arbitration, brought outside of United Kingdom, Republic of Ireland, Channel Islands or Isle of Man.
Yes, you can add this additional protection to your existing policy at any time during the period of cover. We refer to this as a 'mid-term' adjustment.
Simply contact us by phone or email and we will arrange this with you.
Once you have added an additional area of cover to your policy, it cannot be cancelled during the term of the policy. However, when your policy becomes due for renewal you can remove it from the coverage that you require for the following year's policy.
