Most of our commercial customers will purchase General Liability coverage to protect themselves for potential lawsuits or claims. They will also purchase professional liability insurance to protect themselves for costly errors, negligence, or malpractice. Workers’ compensation insurance is necessary when you have employees. With the over whelming amount of cybercrime, why don't they purchase cyber insurance to help protect them from First and Third party claims?
Here are three top reasons why you should invest in Cyber Insurance:
Data breaches are costly. Small businesses lose $80K on average to Cybercrime according to the Better Business Bureau’s 2017 State of Cybersecurity Among Small Businesses in North America report.
Cyber incidents are on the rise and are increasing in severity. Colorado ranked 9 in the Top 10 States in 2018 with 9,328 Cybercrime Victims. (1)
(1) Based on the total number of complaints submitted to the Internet Crime Complaint Center via its website from each state and the District of Columbia where the complainant provided state information.
