Need cyber insurance? Our relationships may be able to help get you a good deal!

We have over 45 years experience working with:

Globally cybercrime has increased by 600% due to the changes triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic. Yet here in the UK, 86% of SMEs don’t have a cyber insurance policy even though four out of ten British businesses have undergone a cyber attack or security breach in the last 12 months.

Cyber insurance can cost as little as £10 per month

The majority of organisations are used to paying for certain types of insurance every year. As cyber insurance is not traditionally on this list for many businesses it is understandable that a large number of entities do not have it. However, with premium costs coming in from as little as £10 per month, the price is not prohibitive.

Cyberattacks carry an average price tag of £2,670

Cyberattacks carry an average price tag of £2,670 each based on UK data for the last 12 months. The larger the business, the higher the price tag is for cyber attacks.

4. Loss of revenue due to a malicious attack, extortion or a data breach on your IT systems or your outsourced IT or data provider

7. Loss of the business money due to an external hack into your IT network or by Social Engineering fraud

Why cyber insurance should be part of your annual insurance premiums

More than three-quarters (86%) of British small to medium enterprises (SMEs) do not have any cyber insurance in place, according to research by insurer Aviva.

Even though

39% of UK businesses have reported a cyber security breach or attack in the last 12 months

26% of UK charities have reported a cyber security breach or attack in the last 12 months

Among those that have identified breaches or attacks, around a quarter (27% of these businesses and 23% of these charities) experience them at least once a week.

A sizeable number of organisations that identify breaches report a specific negative outcome or impact. On average, for those that do, the costs are substantial.

Among the 39 per cent of businesses and 26 per cent of charities that identify breaches or attacks, one in five (21% and 18% respectively) end up losing money, data or other assets. One-third of businesses (35%) and four in ten charities (40%) report being negatively impacted regardless, for example, because they require new post-breach measures, have staff time diverted or suffer wider business disruption.

The COVID-19 pandemic has led to significant changes in ways of working. This has made cyber security harder for many organisations.

Cybercrime, which includes everything from theft or embezzlement to data hacking and destruction, is up 600% as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Nearly every industry has had to embrace new solutions and it forced companies to adapt, quickly.
