We look not just at the story of how a staggering 400,000 police records were accidentally deleted but also at the wider picture of what information is held about us UK citizens by the authorities, and what powers we have over that data.
What’s Cyber Insurance and Why Do We Need it?
A data breach can damage more than just your small-business computer system; it can also damage your reputation and put your customers and employees at risk.
That's why cyber insurance can be a smart precaution for any size business. Cyber insurance generally covers your business' liability for a data breach involving sensitive customer information, such as national insurance numbers, credit card numbers, account numbers, driver's license numbers, and health records.
Should You Purchase Cyber Security Insurance?
In today’s environment, the answer is obviously YES! Organisations of all sizes and types increasingly rely on large amounts of their own or their customers’ data to effectively carry out operations and are tasked with ensuring the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of that data.
Some may even argue that good cyber security insurance is as important these days as your server security: i.e. a strong firewall, virtual private network, and a secure web hosting service.
If you aren’t sure of your IT cyber security protection and fear that you could possibly suffer fatal financial losses in the event of a security breach, purchasing cyber security insurance certainly should be a serious consideration for your organisation.
