What’s in store?


Managing risk – what you need to know about cyber insurance

Insurance – you wouldn’t buy a car or a house without it; so why leave your business unprotected?

Hacking attempts are ever-increasing due to the ‘new normal’ world of remote working. That means that cyber insurance has become more important than ever before, for risk management. Without it, your business is vulnerable to potentially devastating financial losses caused by a raft of internet-based and IT infrastructure risks.

HCR’s Adam Finch is joined by Lindsey Nelson of CFC Underwriting, Camilla Walker of Canopius, Corinne Hammond of Axis Capital, and Simon du Boulay of Lime Street Insurance Brokers to discuss key points on cyber insurance.


Fighting back

Your data is being held hostage; what do you do?

Businesses of all sizes in all industries can find themselves targets of ransomware attacks. If it happens to your business how do know when it’s ‘safe’ to act? Should you pay the ransom? How do you negotiate whilst also trying to stop the attack in progress? Can you ‘go after’ the attacker?

Former FBI Jerry Bessette joins HCR’s Simon Beasley and Claire Holford to answer these questions and break down the steps you can take for getting out of a data hostage situation if it happens to you.
