Whether your business is large or small, there are predatory hackers interested in any of your customer’s information they can find. Data loss insurance offers protection to your business and your customers in the event of a data breach. Here are three reasons no business should go without it.
Protect Your Customers from Identity Theft
Many cyber liability policies cover services to benefit any of your business’ patrons who may have had their personal information compromised in a data breach. This can include assistance with informing about the hack and providing a service to monitor customer credit reports. This will give your clients the peace of mind they need after a loss of data leaves them feeling confused and vulnerable.
Safeguard Your Business Interests
Data loss insurance often offers services to a company not only to help confirm that a hack has occurred but also to manage the emergency monetarily and to provide assistance with public relations efforts, so there is not more damage to your business reputation. In the event of a hacker attempting to force your business to behave in a certain manner at the risk of compromising your business systems, this is also an option in many first-party data loss insurance plans.
Defend Your Company Against Loss at the Hands of Another
If a partner or service provider is hacked, leading your business to be sued, third-party policies are able to offer coverage against legal fees. These policies can also guard against breaches made to your employees’ personal data and protect your business’ intellectual property that may have been compromised.
With cyber threats on the rise, every business owner would be wise to look into how their business could be safer with data loss insurance.
