HSB Total Cyber™: Comprehensive cyber risk insurance for mid-sized companies

Total Cyber Insurance

Cyber-attacks now occur to every size business, including mid-sized firms, not just large companies. Such attacks are experienced by many types of mid-sized companies. And the high cost of cyber-attacks makes going without cyber insurance a real risk.

HSB Total Cyber™ was specially designed to provide comprehensive coverage for U.S. based companies with annual revenues from $10 million to $250 million. With eight available coverages HSB Total Cyber™ gives clients the flexibility to tailor cyber insurance to their needs.

Data breach protections

Coverages for data breach:

  • Data Breach Response Expenses covers notifications, monitoring and other services.
  • Identity Recovery pays for expenses and expert help for a victim to restore credit standings and identity records.
  • Data Breach Liability covers litigation and settlement costs resulting from victims affected by a breach who bring a claim or lawsuit against the insured.
Cyber attack recovery

Coverages for cyber-attacks or threats of attack:

  • Computer Attack covers data restoration or re-creation, system restoration, loss of business, and even includes payment for public relations help to manage the insured’s reputation.
  • Cyber Extortion pays the amount demanded of an insured under threat of a computer system attack — including the cost of an investigator.
Protection for criminal deception

  • Misdirected Payment Fraud coverage pays for direct financial loss resulting from criminal deception using email, facsimile or telephone communications to induce an insured, or a financial institution with which an insured has an account, to send money or divert a payment.
Cyber liability defenses

Defense and settlement costs for cyber liability:

  • Network Security Liability provides for claims that “negligent failure of computer security” caused third-party damage.
  • Electronic Media Liability covers claims that information displayed electronically on a website infringes on or violates their rights, or defames them.
Limits and liability

HSB Total Cyber™ is available for companies with revenues of up to $250 million, although we anticipate most companies will typically have revenues from $10 million to $150 million. Typical limits range from $1 million to $5 million, but higher amounts are available on an account-by-account basis.
