cyber insurance

Cyber insurance is a special insurance policy that covers your business’ losses and liability for intrusions into your business’s computers, computer networks, software, payment processing, and other information technology (cyber events). Cyber events that may be covered by cyber insurance include data breaches, malware, ransomware, viruses, spyware, wire transfer fraud, phishing, denial-of-service (DoS) attacks, Trojans, adware, botnets, man-in-the-middle attacks, credit card web skimming, and others.

In addition to breaching a business’s own valuable information and processes, a data breach may target a business’s sensitive customer information, such as credit card numbers, account numbers, telephone numbers, mailing addresses, passwords, driver’s license numbers, Social Security numbers, health records, and other personally identifiable information (PII).
