Cyber Insurance and Privacy Insurance

Cyber Insurance and Privacy Insurance

Technology, data, and infrastructure are the oxygen of modern businesses. From a start-up hoping to make waves in media, to the laboratory business that’s developing next-gen medical devices – all organisations must embrace technology to thrive. But with new technology comes new risk, which requires cyber insurance to cover.

The invisible threat of cyber-crime, combined with the potential for tech infrastructure to fail, and the ever-evolving regulatory landscape, represents a new minefield for modern business.

Unless your organisation carries specialist cyber insurance coverage against such perils, you won’t be protected against the unusual risks that arise in cyberspace.

What if:

  • Your network or ‘cloud’ were hacked – and the data regulator insists you notify customers of the breach?
  • A malware attack interrupts your operations, leaving a hole in your revenues?
  • You incur cost in reconstituting valuable data that’s been stolen?
  • The data regulator enforces painful financial penalties on you following a breach?

In the wake of numerous high-profile cyber-crime cases, including network and data breaches, businesses globally are shoring themselves up against a range of new global tech and cyber risks. As experts in customised insurance for technology and mediatech businesses, La Playa is the ideal partner to design a watertight, tailored cyber insurance solution for your cyber risks.

Cyber Insurance Coverage can include:

Protection against costs, expenses and liability arising from:

  • Breach of Privacy or Confidentiality – critical defence against your liability for violation of privacy rights or breach of confidential information
  • Data Breach Costs – reimbursement of your costs incurred in dealing with a regulatory investigation, including post-breach costs such as legal, PR & crisis management expenses, customer notifications, credit monitoring and identity theft monitoring costs, and network forensics
  • Regulatory Fines or Contractual Damages – to reimburse sums you’re legally obliged to pay as a direct result of a breach of privacy law or contractual obligation, including PCI-DSS penalties
  • Cyber Liability Insurance – your liability for customer/user financial loss or denial of access
  • Business Interruption – for your lost income as a result of viruses, network failure or damage, hacking or cyber-crime causing ‘down-time’
  • Data Extortion – protection against the threat of extortion as the result of ransomware, theft of data, or damage to your computer network
  • Problems with an outsourcer - we’ll help build protection wherever you face loss or liability, and wherever it arises in your supply chain – including cloud providers & overseas data processors
  • Costs of restoring or recreating data

We're able to reward clients' prudence in managing their Cyber and Privacy liability proactively - if you can demonstrate the precautions you've taken, we may be able to negotiate broader coverage at better rates on your behalf.
