cyberliabilityIf you are like most people, when you hear the term cyberattacks, you think of data breaches. You think of a hacker that undermines security systems to gain access to sensitive data. Most people think this way because the news only reports these types of breaches.

However, there are many other types of data breaches. They come with liabilities that need your business to have cyber insurance.

How Cyber Business Insurance Covers Your Business

Most cyber insurance covers data breaches. However, cybersecurity insurance usually goes beyond simply covering data breaches. The following are two coverage options that may come with your cyber insurance.

Media Liability

Whether you operate a restaurant or a dry cleaner, you can expose your business to media risks. Media liability isn’t limited to broadcasts or other types of media-related firms. If your business operates a blog or uses social media you could be liable for libel, slander, defamation or plagiarism.

If this happens, your insurance might help you. Ask your insurance provider if your cyber insurance can help you with the lawsuit.

Technical Errors and Omission

Research shows that technical errors and omission claims constitute about 40% of the claims against cyber business insurance.

In essence, technical professionals are responsible for liabilities that stem from them doing business. In the past, most people only associated errors and omissions liabilities with doctors and lawyers. However, with many people relying on tech professionals to help grow their business, specialists are often legally exposed.

Other Measures You Can Take to Protect Your Business

Beyond cyber business insurance, you can take additional measures to insulate your business. For instance, creating a media how-to package for your organization may help you reduce risks.

Additionally, if technical errors and omission claims could be a problem for you, establish risk-reducing routines to help your team avoid risk exposure.

Cyber business insurance isn’t simply for cyber breaches. Extra coverage included in the policy will help you protect your business from other risks, too.

We will help you find the right business insurance to protect all of your cyber assets. Give us a call at 843-519-2557 for more information.
