    The information commissioners responsible for enforcing the UK data protection regulations. Change is coming and new EU data protection laws are set to be implemented around 2017/2018.  They will be similar to existing US laws that are very strict and also carry severe penalties.  Businesses will have compulsory notification of all instances of a data breach and any firm not complying will suffer fines and penalties.  Any business suffering a cyber breach, unable to demonstrate that they have taken basic cyber security steps, can expect harsh treatment, compared to businesses that have embraced cyber security measures.

    Following the implementation of new EU data laws, small businesses could find themselves being hit with heavy fines and penalties following a data breach and that’s before they receive they receive claims from customers, suppliers and their own losses following a breach.  It is expected that small businesses could be hit with fines of up to €1 million or 2% of worldwide  turnover (whichever is the greater). Other infractions will result in other fines set out in a tiered structure.  Small businesses must adapt to the change in culture surrounding data protection and cyber security.

    Cover is also available for computer security failure.  This would protect your business if a security event involved data alteration, corruption, transmission of malicious code or a denial of service attack.

    Claims may be brought against you should a data breach result in an individual’s right to privacy being breached.

    New breach notifications law will also require firms to notify of a breach and failure to notify could be result in penalties.

  5. What is cyber risk?

    Read More

    Cyber insurance covers the losses relating to damage or loss of information from IT systems and networks. 

    Cyber risk is now the recognised term for any business that can result in loss or damage, usually when technology has been used to gain unlawful access to secure items.  In most cases, secure items relate data and information.  For example, if you hold client information such as emails, phone numbers, bank or card payment information, then you are a potential target for cyber criminals.  You have a duty of care to protect that information. 

    Stolen bank and card details are often sold online by thieves, however they may also want to steal intellectual property, designs, confidential information or client lists. 

    One of the large risks posed by cyber is a data breach.  The breach of sensitive data as mentioned above can have serious impacts on your business.  However, not all data breaches are a result of hackers.  Employees can send an email to the wrong person or containing the wrong data or may be tricked into revealing passwords.

    Cyber risk is not reserved for large organisations.  Small businesses are potentially even more vulnerable because they have less sophisticated defences and can be a back door into larger businesses.  As such, many large businesses are increasingly concerned about their supply chain as a major cyber weakness.
