Charities collecting donations online need to consider cyber insurance

The impact of a website failure for a charity could be severe if the charity relies on donations made via its website. The level of donations may fluctuate according to the season, such as Christmas, or in connection with a sponsorship event or advertising campaign. If the website failure was to coincide with such an activity, the fund-raising could be compromised preventing the charity fulfilling its charitable aspirations and responsibilities.

Cyber insurance would pay for the loss of income and increased costs of working. This type of policy would also meet the cost of any forensic investigation work into the cause of the failure, and the cost of restoring the site in full.
