Take < ctrl > over cyber attacks

The risk of cyber threats is greater than ever before and barely a day goes by without the media reporting another attack on a major company. What gets less media attention are similar attacks on SME businesses and yet a recent survey reported that 74% of SME's had experienced an IT security breach.

The risk of cyber threats is greater than ever before and barely a day goes by without the media reporting another attack on a major company.

Could your business survive without access to your systems and data? Losing sensitive data could be seriously damaging so it's vital to make sure you have the protection you need.

As cyber attacks become a real and present danger to businesses of all sizes, so the Insurance market is reacting by bringing tailored protection products to market.  Insurance Brokers have been slow to advise their clients about the risk and the available solutions, which vary greatly in cost and the scope of cover provided.

At Franklands we favour robust risk management, to minimise the risk of an attack occurring in the first Instance and an Insurance policy from a quality insurer that includes a swift hands-on response, by cyber risk professionals, to ensure the breach causes minimum disruption and mitigates reputational damage.

Data breaches impact business owners significantly in terms of time, money and reputation and you're not just at risk from malicious attacks like hacking, stolen laptops, and viruses. System failure and employee error are equally common and can be just as damaging.

It's all part of providing you with cover that fits the way you work, so you're free to focus on running your business.
