Cyber crime poses a serious threat to organisations like yours. To help you manage these complex cyber risks, we've joined forces with IBM. Our cyber security solution is designed to get you back in business after a cyber attack. More importantly, it's set up to prevent one from succeeding in the first place.
The combination of IBM's IT security knowledge and our insurance capacity means we promise you a 360º solution - from prevention to remediation.
Prevention. Together with IBM, we use our resources and expertise to create a complete picture of your cyber risks, many of which your own IT experts might have overlooked. Our services include free penetration testing and online training to help prevent breaches caused by human error.
Protection. Once we fully understand your cyber risks, our underwriters will put together bespoke insurance solutions to protect your brand and your growth. Our coverage can account for lost profits and even extortion, and provide liability insurance. Crucially, our localised professionals are empowered to act decisively and independently to support you in the event of an incident.
Remediation. When a cyber attack does occur, we immediately deploy a local incident response team of IT forensics and crisis, legal and reputation management experts to get you back in business. Furthermore, we provide accessible, transparent, responsive claims services.

Because data breaches also, so far, generate most of the cyber-related insurance claims, we limit the scope of this publication to those types of events.Learn more

Edward Snowden is a well-known hacktivist. He disapproved of what was happening in the National Security Agency (NSA) so he leaked confidential information in protest. Elsewhere Sony Pictures Entertainment was subjected to a high-profile cyber-attack, presumably because it wanted to release a film about a national dictator who perhaps takes himself more seriously than Sony realised.Learn more
