Cyber Liability

Data is everywhere. It’s all around us. We collect it. We analyse. We leverage it. It’s the currency of modern business. And it guides all our key decisions. Without it, everything grinds to a halt.

Cyber Liability Insurance can help you recognise and protect the value of your data so you can grow your organisation with confidence.

Regardless of how good your company IT systems are, there is no 100% guaranteed way to protect your data. What’s more, a data breach will not only affect your business, it can negatively impact your clients and customers.

Stolen credit card numbers, financial reports, medical records, birth dates and the loss of sensitive personal data can leave you liable and exposed, causing enormous damage to your bottom line and your reputation.

Recent changes to the Privacy Act now place even greater onus on Australian businesses to ensure the security of private data – with hefty penalties in place for privacy act breaches.

Traditional insurance policies do not cover cyber attacks. That’s why you need a dedicated Cyber Insurance Policy.  

A Cyber Liability Insurance policy sourced by Whitbread gives your company an additional layer of protection.

We empower you with comprehensive cover for all types of scenarios so you can continue to thrive in today’s data driven business environment.
