Someone else is taking a REAL interest in Cyber Risks

It must be, oh, at least 4 weeks since we last mentioned Cyber in ‘Insight’. And what, dear reader, have you done about it, I might ask?

Have you instigated a review of your own status or just kicked it in to the long grass?

If you didn’t have cover already, have you at least obtained a quote to protect your business?

Note that they say that if you suffer a cyber attack, it is a notifiable event to the FCA. It was anyway but this paper takes away any excuse you might have had to say that ‘you didn’t realise’.

I hope it doesn’t happen to you but what if it was you ….. or one of your uninsured clients.

As the young people might comment, ‘just sayin’!
