In today’s world of technology, being prepared for the risks that come along with running a tech-savvy business is essential. The cyber world exposes businesses to hackers and other criminals that try to obtain personal information, such as social security numbers, credit card information, etc. from your business. Are you at risk? Do you store customer information? Do you accept credit cards for your goods or services? Does your business send customer information via email?
If you have answered yes to any of these questions, your business could be at risk. Often, cyber attacks and data breaches are not covered under your standard business insurance policy. Even with the best security in place, you must have a backup plan, which includes cyber liability insurance, to mitigate your financial risk if a data breach were to happen.
