With the rate of cyber-attacks occurring almost every day, it would not be out of place to say any business could just be next. This doesn’t mean you should give up on securing your business. While you invest in cyber security, it is always a smart decision to purchase cyber insurance for your business. As you embark on this, here are some tips to take to heart.
Report a Breach as Soon As Possible
This may not seem like a proactive tip but it surely is worth mentioning. If your business deals with large volume of sensitive information, every minute wasted after a data breach is crucial. Even if you do not deal with sensitive information, as long as the hacker has access to your business data, it can cripple your entire business in minutes. Get in contact with your insurer and report the breach ASAP.
Do Not Accept “No” from Your Insurer
This is not prepping you for a violent battle with your insurer. When it comes to data breaches, if you are aware the amount of damage it could do your business, you would know why this tip is important. When you have a data breach and file a claim, have it in mind to never get it rejected by the insurer. There are some insurers that like to shy aware from responsibilities but you should ensure you demand for your coverage.
