Crime & Cyber Insurance
Burglary and traditional break-in thefts are now less frequent than “Cyber Crime”. The definition of Cyber Crime can vary, but it can involve deception, the obtaining of data from computers or smart-phones and the taking of money by electronic means.
A traditional Insurance programme will insure against “Theft”, but it is outdated. In order to make a claim, you will typically require to have suffered a physical break-in, or “Forcible or Violent Entry or Exit” from your premises.
As the years pass, the number of thefts from businesses which fit these parameters has reduced dramatically, and it appears the drop is likely to continue.
At the same time, the increasing risk of deception theft, data theft, insider theft and other emerging crimes is a significant challenge for businesses throughout the country. As mentioned, these events are now far more likely to impact your business severely than a burglary break-in.
As you can tell from the news, stories of hackers, data leaks, and exploitative fraud tactics crop up all the time. While it might get less press in comparison to high-profile robberies, small businesses are also at risk and are less likely to be protected by insurance.
Although generally not covered by traditional packages or commercial combined insurance policies, there are solutions and premiums for small businesses which can start from as little as £50 per month.
