Your Business and Cyber Liability Insurance
What is Cyber Liability Insurance? 

Cyber Liability Insurance protects your business from losses or liabilities due to a data breach. 

Cyber insurance is not just for large corporations or businesses with e-commerce available on their website. It’s for every business that utilizes the Internet. 

Cyber Liability coverage is affordable, flexible, comprehensive and scalable for your business type, size and risk potential. Coverage includes damages for direct losses, such as business interruption and out of pocket expenses, such as coverage for damages as a result of a legal claim.

  • Approximately 19% of those impacted were classified as “small business”.
