Cyber Insurance Canada with EasyCover

Cybercrime is becoming more prevalent.

Network security breaches and cyberattacks have become much more common. Statistics Canada compiled data from nearly every police organization in the country and discovered that in 2018 there were 7,727 victims and 32,968 separate cases of cybercrime.

All companies who have an on-line presence or use computers to carry out their business operations, regardless of their size or industry, are susceptible to data loss, viruses, network damages, information theft, and other digital threats. Traditional Commercial General Insurance policies will not cover your business for these types of risks. You need a specialized insurance program for these cyber exposures and threats.

Cyberattacks can put businesses in some serious hot water. Cyber threats can shut down your website or computers, access your confidential information, infect your systems and potentially your clients’ systems, and trick you or your employees into transferring money to a cyber criminal. Cyber insurance is one of the best ways to protect your business against these threats.

There is no enterprise that is immune to the debilitating impact of cybercrime. Media tends to report on privacy breaches that impact renowned, larger businesses, but 56% of cyber incidents actually target small businesses.

Fortunately, EasyCover offers a Cyber solution. Our Cyber Insurance policy coverage includes Network Security Liability, Privacy Liability, Network and Data Extortion and Business Interruption Income Loss coverage.

The Significance of Network Security and Privacy Liability Insurance

No matter the size of your company or whether you are the sole employee of your own home-based business, the threat of cybercrime is very real. Increasingly, cyber threats have become a jarring reality for many businesses in Canada. Everyone and everything is potentially online: our clients, their data, crucial business information, important files, and more. Imagine what would happen if your business suffered a privacy breach and clients’ confidential information was accessed or compromised. Could your business afford the costs to stop the breach, replace lost data and information, comply with regulations regarding notifying clients, and deal with potential reputational damage? Insurance is the best way to ensure that your business is covered from these potential risks.

With technology constantly evolving, there are many ways a business can be exposed to cyber risks. Proper network security and internet protocols can mitigate this risk; however, cyber losses may still happen. When cyber criminals access your computer systems and potentially your clients’ confidential information, you could be exposed to privacy liability allegations.

Cyber insurance in Canada is an essential part of a complete business risk management program. Few businesses are able to self-finance costly litigation that could result from privacy breaches or the lost business income when operations are shut-down due to a cyber attack.
