What is Cyber Insurance?

The frequency of cybercrime incidents continues to increase, posing a significant risk to companies' data security. As a result, businesses face the potential threat of data breaches, ransomware attacks, and other forms of cybersecurity incidents. By having Cyber Insurance in place, a company can help minimize its financial responsibility for damages resulting from a cybersecurity attack. Cyber Insurance acts as a proactive measure to mitigate the increasing cyber risks that businesses face in the digital realm, offering protection and reassurance while conducting online operations.


Why do you need Cyber Insurance?

If a company or business stores or transfers digital data, having Cyber Insurance can be highly beneficial. Industries that can benefit from it the most include finance, manufacturing, healthcare, and service industries, and many more. Most likely, the stored data is sensitive and can be used for cyber-attacks if accessed by unauthorised individuals. That's why for businesses, including Cyber Insurance as part of your insurance policy is crucial. It provides financial assistance in the event of a worst-case scenario.

Common Cyber Crimes


Hacking refers to the misuse of devices and networks to cause damage, gather information, or disrupt activity. It involves identifying and exploiting weaknesses in computer systems or networks, usually with the goal of gaining unauthorised access.


Malware is a general term used to describe malicious software that disrupts the regular operations of a computer. It encompasses various harmful programs, such as viruses and other destructive software, which can be used to infiltrate systems and networks.


Ransomware is a type of malware that prevents users from accessing their computer files, systems, or networks by encrypting or locking them.


Phishing is a form of social engineering attack that focuses on deceiving users through the use of counterfeit messages and emails. Its objective is to manipulate the recipient into divulging sensitive information or installing malicious software.
