At TL Dallas, more and more of our clients are seeking to insure their businesses against a cyber-attack. With so much technological advancement in recent years, cyber security is increasingly becoming a priority for all businesses, irrespective of their field.
In recognition of this, we recently attended a cyber security breakfast seminar, hosted by TheBusinessDesk.com, to help us gain valuable insights into how we can potentially better protect our clients in this area.
The panellists were from a range of backgrounds, from fraud specialists to senior legal associates, meaning that delegates were able to gain a wide variety of perspectives on a single issue.
The event kicked off with an opening speech, before the floor was opened up to all attendees. Unlike other cyber security discussions that we have attended, this one focused on the steps that businesses can take to protect themselves from a breach, rather than focusing on recovering from a breach itself.
The panellists stressed the need to adopt a ‘belt and braces’ approach, by not only putting policies in place for when a breach does occur, but also by embedding structures within the business to prevent an attack from occurring in the first place.
Attending this event further underlined the importance for us as brokers of educating businesses that insurance isn’t there simply to cover their tangible assets. With cyber attacks becoming increasingly common, we want to stress the importance of taking out cyber insurance, particularly as secure online data is the backbone of most businesses.
At TL Dallas, we can help you to protect your company’s insurance and reputation, by providing tailored cyber insurance for your business. Our team can cross-benchmark premiums and compare policy wordings, ensuring that you receive the most suitable cover.
