What we offer

Any small or medium sized business that relies on computers and technology to function is at risk of suffering a cyber-attack. This incident can affect the company’s ability to operate and its reputation. These businesses are particularly vulnerable as their IT security tends to be less sophisticated and they have fewer resources available to them to prepare, manage and recover from an incident.  
We have designed our market leading Cyber Beazley Breach Response (BBR) solution to help businesses prepare, manage and recover from a cyber incident. Our insurance solution offers much more than just paying a claim should the worst happen.   
Our service is broken down into 3 integral parts:  

1. Pre-breach – we help clients to understand the cover, the risks and educate their employees about effective cyber security and risk management processes. 
Our clients also benefit from:

  •  Port scans - setup to spot weaknesses in their IT security system
  •  Access to a portal of information on IT security
  •  Access to a network of vendors experienced in improving and handling cyber risk

2. Breach response – if a cyber incident occurs, our in-house Cyber Services Team will work side by side with our client until the incident is resolved.  

3. Claims support - our award winning cyber & tech claims team is at the forefront of defending clients against cyber incidents.

Examples or Scenarios

A healthcare organisation’s offices in Paddington, Cambridge and Newcastle were affected by a computer virus. Forensic investigators determined that protected health information and personally identifiable information were not compromised by the incident. However the healthcare organisation incurred data losses and expenses in responding to the virus, and we paid a claim of over £120,000 in data protection loss for our client.
