Frequently Asked Questions

Cyber insurance helps a business return to pre-loss conditions after a cyber incident occurs. These events often involve a hacker or cybercriminal stealing or exposing sensitive customer information, such as Social Security numbers, credit card numbers, account numbers, driver’s license numbers, and health records.

Marsh McLennan Agency cybercrime coverage assists with incidents involving data breaches anywhere in the world. These include cyberattacks on data held by vendors and other third parties and attacks on your network. Cybercrime coverage includes reputation-based income loss, cyber extortion, data restoration, network interruption or extra expense, and more.

Proactively protect your organization from various types of cybercrime, ransomware attacks, or cyber risk by choosing from our wide selection of cyber insurance policies.

In the cyber world, a ransom is a fee demanded by the cyber criminal in exchange for them to release your data back to you safely. Ransomware protection is often covered as part of a cyber liability insurance policy, so there is no standard policy to assist your business with paying large ransoms. Every attack or data restoration process is unique, depending on the cyber insurer.

However, many cyber insurers are increasingly offering standalone coverage that may be useful to businesses in industries most in need of this type of cyber defense.

Talk to one of our cybersecurity and cyber insurance and liability coverage specialists to see if ransomware protection is a viable and necessary solution for your business.

Any company could benefit from some form of cybercrime insurance. However, organizations that store important data, have large customer databases, and host valuable digital assets, should prioritize this type of insurance.

It may seem like these qualifications fit most businesses because almost every company needs to protect their personal data from potential attacks, data breaches, and social engineering and cyber threats. Even if you don’t have enormous or vital information within your systems, investing in cyber security insurance is still a good idea to help protect your company, employees, and customer data.

The importance of a cyber insurance policy can’t be overstated. While reactive care is important to get your business back up and running after a cyber event or crime is committed, proactive risk management efforts are essential. Insuring your most valuable and vulnerable assets will provide peace of mind in the event of any potential issues.
