Cyber Insurance

Cyber Coverages for Businesses from Maine to New York

Cyber attacks have been the subject of news stories more and more recently. With businesses becoming increasingly reliant on technology, possible data breaches are becoming less of an “if” and more of a “when”. A data breach can do more than just damage your computer system- it can also result in fines and legal fees. Business owners should have plans in place for dealing with a cyber attack, and consider if their business needs cyber insurance.
