HSB Cyber Insurance

E-trade Product
Access via HSB Fast Track and Acturis

An add-on computer, data and cyber insurance policy all in one; providing comprehensive cover for small and medium-sized businesses across the UK and Ireland.

Whilst data losses for SMEs may not make the headlines, the potential financial cost and reputational impact of a cyber incident can be crippling. As all businesses could be at risk from a cyber attack or data breach by hackers, viruses or errant employees, having specific insurance coverage in place to mitigate a cyber event can reduce its impact on a business from a financial, reputational and business interruption perspective.

HSB Cyber Insurance is designed to offer protection from cyber risks which could be damaging to a business and its reputation, such as data recovery following a hardware failure or full scale data breach.

Trading made simple

Available as an add-on cover via HSB Fast Track or Acturis, our product has been designed to provide brokers with the opportunity to add Cyber to other insurance products on the platforms; providing protection for cyber risks which may not already be covered.

Our policy provides four sections of cover:

  • computer system damage and loss of business income
  • cyber-crime
  • data breach expense
  • cyber liability
