Learn How We Can Help

Heightened Cyber Exposure due to a Convergence of Three Trends

  1. Increasing reliance on technology - digitization of business
  2. Increasing value of non-physical assets - relationship between cyber risks and multiple classes of insurance
  3. Increasing moral and legal obligation - from the public, regulator, insurer
    • Regulators' intensified focus on protecting consumer data
    • Regulation not moving as quickly as cyber criminals

Privacy remains the prevalent exposure and has historically driven the purchase of insurance.

Impact on Your Company

Cost & Disruption

An incident can create downtime to internal systems, and require staff attention and effort, without ever causing disruption to actual revenue flow - but creating disruption and additional expense for the company related to:

  • Internal Resources
  • External Resources
  • Communication & Notification
  • Customer Demands - Short & Long Term
  • Regulators - OEB & Privacy

What Makes Up the Cost of Loss?

Whether an incident originates from a technology-based source or just an employee's physical mishandling or private information, the result is the same: private information gets exposed and/or your computer system environment is compromised.
