Cyber Insurance

For the attacks you hope won't happen

Cyber Insurance

Phishing. Extortion. Social engineering. Cyber-crime is still the thing that happens to someone else, right? Until it’s not. We don’t want you to take that chance, which is why we strongly recommend Cyber Insurance. Even if you don’t arrange it through us.

What is Cyber Liability Insurance?

Cyber Insurance protects your business against the internet, IT networks, cybercrime and even your own GDPR policy. It’s one of the most claimed-for policies (and also covers you for liability), so it’s as important as property insurance or professional indemnity insurance. In fact, we feel so strongly about this being a must-have insurance, we’ll give you advice even if you decide we’re not the right broker for you.

A cyber policy usually provides cover against cybercrime (tangible losses) and cyber liability (claims from employees or third parties).

  • Cybercrime
  • Cyber liability (employee claims)
  • Cyber liability (third-party claims)


Of all the risks we cover, cyber is the fastest growing by far. You might think you’re too small to be of interest to cybercriminals, or that because you’re big, you must be fully covered. But, the truth is, everyone is vulnerable. ”

How Cyber Liability Insurance protects you

Cyber Insurance covers the costs you might incur after a cyber-attack or security breach. It also protects you against financial losses if your company website fails or your ISP collapses. And you’re also covered for legal defence costs if you’re accused of publishing defamatory content online.

We protect you against ever-expanding digital risks so you can cope with an attack.
