Cyber security risks have become more significant as we store more consumer financial and health information in electronic form. Hardly a week goes by without this topic in the mainstream news. As businesses and consumers become more reliant on electronic storage, there are more opportunities for cyber-attacks. Recent high-profile data breaches against companies such as Equifax, Yahoo and the WannaCry cyber-attack have led to a surge in requests for protection in the form of cyber security insurance policies. However, securing a cyber-liability policy is not simple. Insurers writing this type of coverage need to look at multiple factors to determine if it is worth the risk. For example, they need to look at the business’s anti-virus and anti-malware software, the business’ risk-management techniques, its physical assets, its intellectual property and even personnel. This will determine rates as each plan is not “one size fits all” and is usually specifically tailored to the business itself.
