Did you know, when we guide you through the Cyber Essentials Accreditation process and provide you with your certification, you also get free cyber liability insurance for your business up to £25,000?
What is Cyber Essentials?
Cyber Essentials is a government-backed accreditation scheme designed to help businesses understand how to effectively protect themselves and their customers from cyber threats.
The government advises that up to 80% of common cyber attacks could be prevented by implementing Cyber Essentials in your business.
The accreditation focuses on 5 key controls which help businesses identify and address their vulnerabilities in specific areas of data security. Achieving the standard will protect your business and help it grow.
What is Cyber Liability Insurance
Whilst Cyber Essentials compliance has been proven to significantly reduce the risk and severity of a cyber attack, the danger can never be removed completely. Having cyber liability insurance for your business gives you peace of mind that, should a data breach occur, the cost implications will be covered.
What are the benefits of Cyber Liability Insurance?
With the Cyber Liability Insurance on offer, the cost of a data breach to your business is taken care of up to the sum of £25,000. The expenses covered include:
- Our incident response service and the consequent disaster recovery work required.
- Additional disaster management costs including legal fees and PR specialists.
- Liability claims made against your business resulting from media activity and wrongful acts of privacy and security.
- Ransom demands and other extortion.
- Regulatory fines.
- Loss of profit and operation expenses.
