Cyber Insurance 

Cyber insurance is an essential tool for organisations, not only to mitigate cyber risk exposures but also to help organisations recover should they experience a cyber breach.

Cyber insurance typically provides the following key first party and third party coverages:

First Party

  • Direct access to incident response specialists in the event of an actual or suspected cyber breach
  • Coverage for loss of profit due to business interruption that results from network or system downtime
  • Coverage for costs incurred in rectifying computer system damage and recovering lost data
  • Notification and monitoring costs for impacted customers
  • Insurable fines and penalties resulting from a regulatory investigation
  • Coverage for payment card industry (PCI) data security standards assessments

Third Party

  • Compensation and defence costs which arise from claims brought by impacted customers or employees for breach of confidentiality obligations
  • Third party privacy and breach management costs, including notification expenses, credit monitoring costs and call centre services

Whilst the above reflects typical coverage available in the insurance market, it is also important to understand that the cyber insurance market continues to evolve, by developing protection for gaps created by other lines of insurance. Marsh also works closely with insurers to ensure that cyber policies are tailored to the unique needs and requirements of each business.

What value does Cyber Insurance have for my business?

One of the most valuable features of cyber insurance is the direct and immediate access an insured has to specialist vendors, who can provide important assistance in managing and containing a cyber event. Often this knowledge does not exist within an insured’s business and the ability to access these specialists can lead to things like protection of a company’s reputation, or isolation and removal of malicious code before it causes widespread damage. For high-severity cyber events where the financial impact is significant, cyber insurance is a cost-efficient, risk transfer tool that can help companies mitigate cyber-attack cash outflows and losses.
