At Short 24 News, we understand the paramount importance of safeguarding your business in the digital era. Cyber threats loom large, and having a robust cybersecurity strategy is not just prudent but often mandatory, depending on your location and the regulatory frameworks you fall under.

Is Cyber Security Insurance Required by Law?

In today's interconnected world, adherence to regulatory frameworks is crucial. Depending on your location, regulatory standards like the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) may necessitate a high standard of data privacy for organizations. We delve into the details to help you comprehend and meet these requirements seamlessly.

Coverage of Cyber Insurance: Beyond the Basics

Data Breach Claims

In the unfortunate event of a data breach or phishing incident, the aftermath can be daunting. Cyber liability insurance from Short 24 News comprehensively covers various costs associated with such incidents, including:

  • Legal Fees: Ensuring you have legal representation when needed.
  • Forensics and PR Costs: Addressing the aftermath with forensic analysis and public relations efforts.
  • Customer Notification: Covering expenses related to researching and notifying affected customers.
  • Credit Monitoring: Offering protection through credit monitoring services.
  • Regulatory Penalties: Mitigating financial repercussions resulting from the breach.
  • Miscellaneous Incident Response Tasks: Addressing any other unforeseen incident response needs.

Ransomware Attacks

The ever-looming threat of ransomware can cripple a business. In the unfortunate event of a ransomware attack, where a hacker encrypts your business data and demands payment for its release, our cyber liability insurance steps in. We ensure that the cost to restore your data and recover from the attack is covered comprehensively.

  • Business Interruption Coverage: Addressing potential income loss and expenses due to a security failure, such as a Denial of Service attack (DoS).

Tailoring Coverage to Your Business

Factors Influencing Coverage Needs

Understanding that one size does not fit all, Short 24 News acknowledges the unique nature of each business. When determining your cyber security coverage needs, consider factors such as:

  • Nature of Work: The specific industry and activities your business engages in.
  • Workforce Size: The number of employees and subcontractors working within your organization.
  • Risk Assessment: Evaluating the level of risk your company faces in the digital landscape.
  • Geographical Considerations: Recognizing the distinct regulatory landscape in the state where your business operates.

Tax Implications of Cyber Security Insurance

Ensuring that your business is not only secure but also financially savvy is part of our commitment at Short 24 News. Cyber liability insurance premiums are often tax-deductible. Our advice is to consult with a licensed accounting professional to confirm your eligibility. The IRS views payments for this insurance as an "ordinary and necessary" business expense, so keeping meticulous records is essential.
