Cyber insurance covers the losses relating to damage to, or loss of information from, ICT (Information and Communications Technology) systems and networks. Generally cyber risks fall into “First-Party” and “Third-Party” risks. Insurance products exist to cover either, or both, of these types of risk.
First-Party Cyber Insurance
First-party insurance covers your business’ own assets. This may include, but not be limited to, the following:
→ Loss, or damage, to digital assets such as data or software programmes.
→ Business interruption from network downtime.
→ Cyber exhortation, where third-parties threaten to damage, or release, data if money is not paid to them.
→ Customer notification expenses when there is a legal, or regulatory, requirement to notify them of a security or privacy breach.
→ Reputational damage arising from a breach of data that results in loss of intellectual property or customers.
→ Theft of money, or digital assets, through theft of equipment or electronic theft.
Third-Party Cyber Insurance
Third-party insurance covers the assets of others, typically your customers. This may include, but not be limited to, the following:
→ Security and privacy breaches, and the investigation, defence costs and civil damages associated with them.
→ Multi-media liability, to cover investigation, defence costs and civil damages arising from defamation, breach of privacy or negligence in publication in electronic or print media.
→ Loss of third-party data, including payment of compensation to customers for denial-of-access, and failure of software or systems.
