Cyber liability insurance for charities

Cyber Liability Insurance for charities

There are only two types of companies, those that have been hacked, and those that will be.

Does your charity:

  • Hold sensitive customer data electronically, such as names, addresses or banking information?
  • Rely heavily on IT systems and websites to operate?
  • Have a website?
  • Use email or social media?
  • Accept payments online or by card?

If the answer to any of these is yes, we advise protecting yourself from cyber crime.

Cyber Liability Insurance

What can be covered*?

A Cyber Liability insurance policy can cover the following type of losses:

  • Breach costs can offer practical support in the event of a data breach including forensic investigations, legal advice and notifying customers or regulators.
  • Cyber business interruption cover can compensate for loss of income, for example, if a hacker targets your systems and prevents your organisation from earning revenue.
  • Hacker damage cover reimburses you for the costs of repair, restoration or replacement if a hacker causes damage to your websites, programs or electronic data.
  • Cyber extortion will protect you if a hacker tries to hold your organisation to ransom by covering the ransom you have paid, as well as the services of a leading risk consultancy firm to help manage the situation.
  • Network security, privacy and confidentiality liability.
  • Network security, privacy liability (regulatory).
  • Crisis containment can provide expert support to mitigate reputational damage.
  • Privacy protection cover pays to defend and settle claims made against you for failing to keep people's personal data secure.
  • Cyber terrorism.
  • Payment card industry data security standard – fines.
