As the new Startup Surgery Insurance Doctor at Tech City News, our Chief Underwriting Officer Ben Rose was asked:
"As a fast-growing tech startup, we're holding an increasing amount of customer and employee data. Can insurance help us in the case of a data breach or cyber-attack?"
Ben's advice is that digital businesses are prime candidates for cyber-attacks. According to the latest Government Security Breaches Survey, a third of small organisations were affected in 2015.
Ben explains that a data breach can have serious repercussions both the business and it's clients, including reputational damage as well as legal fees and compensation claims.
Before investing in cyber cover, bear in mind that policies vary significantly, so be sure to seek cover from a cyber insurance specialist to make sure it meets your requirements.
