Why Cyber Liability Insurance?

Cyber Liability Insurance has become a necessity for every business regardless of industry due to the pervasive and growing use of computers. The 2018 Ponemon Institute Cost of Data Breach Study calculates the average cost of a compromised record is $148 and it took organizations 196 days, on average, to detect a data breach. The study goes on to report that the total cost of a breach ranges from $2.2 million for incidents with fewer than 10,000 compromised records to $6.9 million for incidents with more than 50,000 compromised records.

Data Theft or Cyber Extortion Liability Claim

A U.S. based information technology company contracted with an overseas software vendor. The vendor left certain “administrator” defaults on the company’s server and a “hacker for hire” was paid $20,000 to exploit the vulnerability. The hacker demanded an extortion payment, otherwise he would post records of millions of registered users on a blog available for all to see. The extortion expenses and payments are expected to exceed $2,000,000.
