With the rate at which cyber-attacks are occurring, it has become imperative for all business owners to take active steps to protecting their business. If you look at the statistics, you would see that reported attacks are growing exponentially every year – this doesn’t take into account the unreported attacks. So if you are aware of this global business threat and want to secure your business, here are two tips you need to take to heart.
Work Closely with Your Insurer
While cyber insurance policy has a general coverage provision, it is best to evaluate exactly what your business needs. By working with your insurer, you will be able to get a policy that is tailored to fit your business. Usually this will mean you would need to buy additional coverage if your business needs it. A good cyber insurance company will provide you with a professional broker to work with.
Ask the Right Questions
Working with a professional broker makes the whole process easier. A professional broker is always willing to answer all your questions and explain it in the simplest form. While these brokers are willing to do this, you first have to start by asking the right question. No question is awkward or silly for them to answer. You can never know cyber insurance more than the broker, so there’s basically no need to act the part. Most issues that come with insurers and their clients are as a result of misunderstanding and assumptions.
