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.
