Cyber Insurance Canada with EasyCover
Cybercrime is becoming more prevalent.
Lately, network security breaches and cyberattacks have become more and more common. Did you know that 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? Companies, regardless of their size or industry, are susceptible to data loss, viruses, network damages, information theft, and more digital threats. It’s important to note that your traditional commercial insurance policy will not cover your business for these types of risks which is why you need a specialized insurance program to guarantee privacy breach coverage.
As the “modern crime”, cyberattacks can put businesses in some serious hot water. Cyber insurance is one of the best ways to protect your firm against these threats.
There is no enterprise that is totally immune to the debilitating impact of cybercrime. Commonly, media will report on privacy breaches that impact renowned businesses that are much larger than your run-of-the-mill retail company, but 56% of cyber incidents are actually targeted towards small businesses. Thankfully, EasyCover is here with a solution. Our cyber insurance policy covers Privacy Liability and Network Security Liability that will help secure you should your network infrastructure and/or business data become compromised.
The Significance of Network Security and Privacy Liability Insurance
No matter whether the organization that you run is a regional company, a massive, multi-million dollar enterprise or even a home-based business, the threat of cybercrime is very much real. Increasingly so in recent years, cyber threats have become a jarring reality for many businesses in Canada. Everyone and everything is online. Our clients, their data, crucial business information, important files, information, and more – so what would be the consequence if your business suffered a privacy breach? Insurance is the best way to ensure that your business is covered from any potential risks.
Many organizations are at risk of cybercrime threats, but businesses make up 84% of that total. With technology constantly evolving, there are many ways a business can be exposed to risks. One of the biggest ways to mitigate this is by practicing proper network security. Liability claims may still happen despite our best efforts, however – which is where privacy liability insurance comes into play. Cyber insurance in Canada is absolutely essential to guaranteeing security against the massive costs that come with lawsuits resulting from privacy breaches. No system is 100% failsafe, after all. Get privacy breach insurance with EasyCover and have peace of mind in knowing that if something occurs, we can help your business post-attack and maintain your operation’s financial stability.
