Cyber Risk Prevention
March 12, 2018
Cyber Risk Insurance
Cyber liability coverage (for data breaches) has evolved from just insurance for information technology companies to coverage that nearly every type of business should carry. From retailers, property managers, banks, contractors, distributors, restaurants and medical offices, many businesses are unaware of the severe data breach exposures they face. Any business not making an effort to protect the personal private information, either virtual or on paper, of employees, vendors and clients is seriously out of step with the emerging landscape of privacy law. Our office can provide your business with the right combination of coverages to fit your unique exposures. Cyber risk insurance is still available at very reasonable premiums.
Cyber Risk Prevention Tips
- Do not use the same password for all of your accounts. Log-ins associated with online banking, financial services, and online purchases should have different passwords.
- Install security software that is designed for your specific business.
- Only connect to the Internet over secure, password-protected networks.
- Don’t collect or maintain information that you don’t need.
- Reduce the number of places where you store information.
- Don’t store important information on laptops.
- Password protect all important documents.
- Review bank and credit card statements monthly.
- Never email information using an unsecured Wi-Fi network.
