The Department of Homeland Security’s website identifies Cybersecurity Insurance as a tool – designed to mitigate losses from a variety of cyber incidents, including data breaches, business interruption, and network damage. This broad definition affects every company that could be sued for an employee or an intruder using your clients’ information for illegal purposes. Remember that with today’s technology an intruder doesn’t have to throw a brick through your window – they could just compromise your wifi signal, send a virus in an email, use a skimmer to take your information or use some other new technology that will be invented tomorrow.
Most insurance companies will try and sell you different packages, but Black’s Insurance is dedicated to providing you peace of mind. We take the time to sit down with you and understand your current exposure and craft a plan around meeting your needs.

But if your company needs greater security we will work hard to show you all of your options to make sure you’re fully covered.
