Hunter Insurance STEPPING INTO THE BREACH With losses from data breaches growing and losses from hackers amounting to $1.5 billion in 2016, cyber incidents are now the third-largest global business risk, according to the Insurance Information Institute (III). While companies (such as retailers) were once viewed as easy targets, many have hardened their defenses against future cyber breaches. Now, hackers are increasingly turning their attention to smaller businesses and other sectors. In 40 percent of all hack attacks, according to the III, computer hardware and data are held for ransom. With this in mind, businesses of all sorts and sizes are recognizing the need for cyber insurance. While liability and property-casualty coverage usually deal only with physical events, cyber coverage protects against information theft and loss. A strong cyber insurance policy can help businesses weather the storm more effectively when a data breach or network security failure has occurred. HUNTER INSURANCE, INC. is a small business, so we know how to address the issues and concerns of similar companies. We even have insurance programs tailored for general contractors, funeral directors, and restaurant owners.. To learn more, please call 401-769-9500, or visit us at 389 Old River Rd., Lincoln. We are the first agency in Rhode Island to receive the Rive Star Award of Distinction. NOTE: According to the Insurance Information Institute, medical and health care records represent 35% of all data breaches and more than half of all records stolen.
