HSB Cyber Insurance

An add-on e-trade product designed to mitigate a cyber event affecting small and medium-sized businesses; reducing its impact from a financial, reputational and business interruption perspective.

Today, virtually all businesses collect and store personal information about customers, employees and others. The frequency of data breaches - the theft, loss or mistaken release of private information - is an all too common occurrence. But data breaches aren’t just a big business problem; small and medium-sized businesses with fewer data security resources are particularly vulnerable.

In response to the growing demand for cyber insurance, HSB has developed an e-trade policy covering computer system, data and cyber risks specifically for small and medium-sized businesses.
