Cyber insurance for optometry practices

If you’re here, you’re already ahead of the 42%* of businesses who do not know about or have no intention of buying cyber insurance.

We’re here to tell you what it’s all about.

Cyber Insurance is designed to cover costs associated with cyber-attacks or breaches. Typical cover can include the following;

  • Cyber extortion or ransomware attacks
  • Third party data breach notification costs
  • Costs to reinstate data or restore programs following an attack
  • Network failure – cover for income lost and additional expenses you incur
  • Legal costs in the event of a third party breach – occurs from a network breach or privacy/data breach
  • Regulatory legal costs should an investigation be brought against you by a government entity
  • Multimedia liability in the event of a claim arising against you for plagiarism, breach of copyright and piracy
  • Cover for consequential harm and crisis communication in the event of a cyber-attack occurring, resulting in press coverage

How at risk am I?

It’s a fair question but you should be asking, how well your business would cope in an attack? How confident are you that you and your staff will know what to do?
