North Ferriby
HU14 3LG

The Humber Business Resilience Forum in conjunction with Henderson Insurance Brokers Ltd and Hiscox UK are pleased to invite you to our latest seminar looking at how to insure your business against a data loss or cyber-attack and what you should look out for.
Purchasing an insurance policy may seem straight forward but what are you buying and how will it respond to a loss – we’ve asked our expert to explain.

The session will cover:
Gaps in insurance not covered by conventional policies
Business interruption caused by a loss of data or cyber breach
Crime cover vs. cyber cover
Ransom cover (is it legal to insure for payment of a ransom?)
How to choose the right policy?
Compliance requirements/risks and jurisdiction issues
How likely are policies to pay out, when would they/wouldn’t they, what will the insurer require of the policyholders?
Is there a difference between insurers?
What support can you expect following an attack?
Example costs for a sample of businesses
