Cyber-insurance supplements a company's property and general liability insurance policies. In order to be granted cyber-insurance, your company must have up-to-date virus protection, a firewall and daily back-ups.
We offer large companies tailored solutions to take care of their cyber security and data security.

Cyber-insurance in practice
A retailer was going to email its customers a discount voucher, but accidentally sent them an attachment containing customers’ personal data and credit card details.
Cyber-insurance covered the costs caused by fulfilling the company’s disclosure obligation specified in the General Data Protection Regulation.
The company’s information system was under an extensive denial-of-service attack that paralysed its business for several days.
Expert services included in the cyber-insurance were able to stop the attack and the insurance compensated for the profit loss caused by the business interruption.
An employee clicked on what appeared to be an advertisement but was in fact a phishing message. Clicking the message caused ransomware to be installed in the data network, locking more than 72,000 files.
The cyber-insurance compensated the costs caused by removing the malicious software and recovering the files.
A factory’s computer-controlled production equipment we hacked, causing production to come to a halt. This resulted in extensive business interruption losses.
The cyber-insurance compensated for the profit loss caused by the business interruption.
The General Data Protection Regulation will be applied as of 25 May 2018 concerning all personal data processing as a rule. The purpose of the Regulation is to bring data protection regulation up to date and to support the development of online economy. Another purpose of the Regulation is to increase the openness and transparency of personal data processing.
The Regulation improves people’s right to monitor the processing of their personal data and creates new obligations to companies processing personal data (controllers and processors). In practice, companies must ensure that the data protection principles and requirements are followed at all stages of personal data processing and upon request also to prove compliance.
A new aspect of the Regulation concerns companies’ (controllers’) obligation to report any personal data breach to the data protection authority and the person whose data was breached. For example, the regulatory authority must as a rule be informed of any breach without any undue delay and if possible within 72 hours of the breach being detected.
Compliance with the obligations are backed up by effective enforcement – the regulatory authority may, for example, order corrective measures and significant administrative fines.
