Reasons to consider a Cyber Liability & Data Breach policy:
- Responding to a breach is not only costly — it's complex. Experts from multiple disciplines—from forensic investigators, to public relations firms, to privacy counsel — may be needed to mount a coordinated response to even a small incident.
- A single laptop left on a commuter train or stolen at an airport can cost an agent nearly $50,000 — most of that being expenses to respond to data breached—or potentially breached.
- State and federal regulations dictate proper handling of private information. If this information is breached, agents must navigate the different laws in 46 states that mandate how victims must be notified.
- Even if you outsource data handling, your exposure stays in-house. Some 70 percent of small businesses report that breaches are more likely to occur when outsourcing data.
- The exposure is not just from hackers intruding on electronic systems. Breaches are caused by everything from lost, discarded, or stolen laptops, PDAs, smart phones, and portable memory devices, to innocent procedural errors and acts of disgruntled employees.
