Are you adequately covered in the event of a Cyber attack on your business
Monday 10th of July 2017 08:00
It seems barely a week goes by without news of an organisation losing data containing personal information or suffering a cyber-attack. The WannaCry ransomware attack of 12th May 2017 targeted Microsoft Windows operating systems and infected 230,000 computers in 150 countries, other high profile attacks have targeted Yahoo and the online loan company Wonga.
The insurance market is responding and a number of insurers are offering products which will offer support to organisations who suffer a data breach or cyber-attack. So what cover is available, are you potentially at risk and are there any practical actions you can take?
Are you at risk?
If an organisation;
then it could be vulnerable to a data breach or loss of business services.
What can you do to help protect yourself?
Hackers are incredibly adept at exploiting vulnerabilities, but there are three things organisations can do to keep on top of ransomware attacks; firstly have good back up procedures in place, secondly keep software patching up to date and finally do regular phishing training with employees.
