Insurance for GDPR

A made-to-measure approach from specialists in emerging risks.

How can Digital Risks help?

Fine and compliance

The GDPR puts a greater onus on businesses to keep customer data secure, while introducing more serious penalties for non-compliance. From 25th May 2018, any business that fails to follow the new rules will face fines of up to €20m, or 4% of annual turnover – whichever is higher. If that happens, our cyber security policy will cover any defence costs and penalties - where legally insurable.

Protecting your reputation

Cyber-attacks and data breaches are big news, and the GDPR will increase the spotlight on those affected. How you handle your PR following a breach can make or break your reputation. That's why with Digital Risks' cover, you'll have access to PR expertise to guide you through the process and ensure your image remains intact. But, if you do suffer any reputational damage, you'll be covered for resultant lost income over a period of up to 90 days.

Cyber and data specialists

Unlike generic business insurers, we specialise in covering the new and emerging risks faced by innovative digital businesses. That means our products are built around today's cyber and data threats and perfectly aligned with the GDPR. We even have our own in-house GDPR specialist, who is on hand to answer your data questions.

A fast response

Sometimes it's impossible to avoid a breach, which is why an effective response plan is non-negotiable. Having a response plan is also a legal requirement under the GDPR. Being prepared means you'll recover from a breach more quickly, with minimum impact to your business and customers. And with our cover, everything is taken care of, including a direct point of contact on our team and access to legal, IT forensics and PR support.

Authorised by the FCA

The FCA supervises UK financial services firms to protect consumers. We are directly authorised and regulated by the FCA and our Firm Reference Number is 656459. These details can be confirmed on the Financial Services Register at or by calling the FCA on 0845 606 1234.

A-rated financial strength

Our insurance products are underwritten by security with Standard & Poor's A-rated financial strength or higher. This means the insurer has been independently assessed by the world’s leading credit rating provider and found to have a strong capacity to meet financial commitments (pay claims).
