Cyber & Data Security

Keyboard intruderHow confident are you that your computer systems are protected from the ever-growing threat of cybercrime?

Technological change is affecting the way we work, play, and live. We are no longer content with obsolete methods.  As technological advances continue, our dependency on this technology increases.  As a result, consumers expect more, and your pressure to meet these expectations escalates.

The rapid change in technology has had an impact on the insurance industry as well. Traditional insurance programs do not meet the changing exposure to loss that has been created by new technology.  State and Federal privacy laws designed to prevent and deter identity theft are being enacted with increasing frequency.  Security breaches range from a misplaced mobile device to a sophisticated cyber attack.

In most instances, the law requires companies to notify potentially affected individuals and take proactive steps to minimize the possibility of identity theft.  Even if no identity theft results, compliance with legal mandates can be a significant expense.

Marsh & McLennan Agency can work with you to identify the cyber liability exposure to your business and evaluate the best way to minimize the risk through insurance solutions:

Coverage options include:

  • Liability coverage for financial losses resulting from identity theft
  • Privacy notification expense
  • Credit monitoring services for affected individuals
  • Lost income resulting from computer hacking and virus transmissions
  • Extra operating expenses from cyber attacks

Marsh & McLennan Agency also conducts an annual survey about perceptions of Cyber Risk and Cyber Liability insurance.  We then analyze the feedback of employers across the United States and draw out observations about how small and midsize employers view cyber issues.
