Cyber attacks are becoming more common. In 2017 there were several major cyber attacks that exposed vital personal information about millions of people.
- Verizon was attacked and 14 million personal records were stolen.*
- Equifax suffered a breach that exposed the identities, credit information, and other data of 143 million people.* One of them might be you.
It has also been revealed that Yahoo was attacked and nearly a billion email addresses were compromised just a few years ago.
NSA, through it’s insurance administrator, FTJ, offers these products that help “Main Street Practitioners” in the event that their systems are compromised.
Cyber Liability Insurance
Accounting and bookkeeping firms face security challenges other small businesses don’t because of the sensitive data they retain for client tax preparation and payroll. Social security numbers, bank account information, and other types of highly sensitive financial data can be easy pickings for a hacker if your security is lax.
In a world where you see and hear about cyber-related events, businesses failing and client lawsuits, it might be possible to still think that it couldn’t happen to you. Not so. The incidence of data theft and security breaches is steadily rising. Cyber Liability insurance provides protection for your firm’s liability to third parties for network or security breaches.
