Watch now: Managing risk – what you need to know about cyber insurance

Why is cyber insurance essential for a 21st century business?

Cyber risk is increasing, with a recent government survey suggesting that over 60% of large companies and over 30% of small businesses have suffered a cyber-attack or data breach.

The shift to remote working since March 2020 also created a catalyst for cyber-attacks, and so the need for insurance is ever-more important. Without cover, your business could be vulnerable to potentially devastating financial losses caused by a raft of internet-based and IT infrastructure risks.

In this session, 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:

  • The importance of cyber insurance and type of coverage provided by cyber policies
  • What to expect when you buy cyber insurance
  • The type of claims made by people who have bought cyber insurance
  • What protection looks like for smaller UK SMEs and how they can prioritise cover
  • The upcoming trends in ransomware and how cyber insurance may evolve over the next couple of years

This webinar is part of our Cyber Conference series.
