Overview
CYBER
 
What is it?
Cyber insurance delivers protection for an organisation in the following ways:

Privacy protection:
– Third party and employee privacy liability for damages and claims expenses
    as a result of a privacy breach
– Privacy regulatory defence and penalties
– Notification expenses to notify victims of privacy breaches
– Forensic costs to contain a breach and carry out the necessary forensic
   audits following a breach
– PR expenses to help limit the reputation impact following a security breach
– Credit monitoring costs to monitor the victims credit history for
   fraudulent activity
– Payment Card Industry (PCI) fines
– Reputational risk extension as a result of a data breach
   (case by case basis)

Plus other Cyber Liability coverage includes:
– Network Security Liability for damages and claims expenses the insured
   is legally obligated to pay, as arising out of computer attacks caused by
   failure of security
– Negligent transmission of a virus: damage to customers' computer
   systems and/or data
– Multimedia Liability, Intellectual Property Infringements and Libel and
   Slander due to email or website content

Loss of digital assets including non-physical business interruption:
– Data/Electronic information loss: The costs to restore data that has been
   lost or corrupted
– Indemnification for loss of revenue following unplanned system outage
   and increased cost of working
– Cyber extortion coverage: Covers both the costs of investigation
   and the extortion demand amount related to a threat to commit a
   computer attack
– Cyber terrorism coverage (case by case)
Who should consider buying this insurance?
