If your company handles critical assets such as customers’ personal data, intellectual property or proprietary corporate data, you are at risk of a data breach. It doesn’t matter if you are a Fortune 500 company or a “Mom and Pop Business”, no Canadian company of any size is completely safe from a data breach.

A data breach is an incident where private data is accessed and or stolen by an unauthorized individual or criminal entity. Data can be stolen by a third party, such as a hacker, or by an internal actor (perhaps a disgruntled or recently fired employee).  A duty of care exists for all businesses to maintain the security of the information it controls and legal precedents defining your responsibilities are changing rapidly.

Cyber liability insurance policies protect your business when sued by a third party for their damages caused by a data breach.  In addition Cyber Liability policies can cover the cost of notifying customers, credit monitoring services, crisis management and replace lost income as a result of a data breach. In addition, policies can cover legal defense fees a business may be required to pay as a result of the breach.

Coverage for Security Breach and Cyber Liability is commonly excluded from Commercial General Liability, Directors & Officers and Errors & Omissions policy wordings.  A data breach can be very costly and even has the ability to shut down a business.
