CFC expands cyber insurance offering with market-leading business interruption cover
LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jan 8, 2019–CFC, a specialist insurance provider and leader in emerging risk, today announced the latest version of its cyber insurance product, introducing market-leading cover for business interruption as well as expanded cover for a variety of cybercrime activities.
Under CFC’s new cyber insurance product, businesses will now benefit from business interruption cover that is triggered by IT system failure as well as malicious cyber events. The updated policy also provides full supply chain business interruption cover, extending to events that impact the insured’s systems, the systems of their technology suppliers as well as those of non-technology suppliers where named. CFC is the only cyber insurance provider to offer this cover with unlimited reinstatements as standard.
“Cyber insurance is about much more than a data breach. The costs associated with system failure or downtime following a cyber attack, like ransomware, can be hugely detrimental to a business and shouldn’t be overlooked when purchasing a cyber insurance policy,” said James Burns, cyber product leader at CFC. “By extending the triggers and breadth of our business interruption cover to address the real-world needs of our clients, CFC is delivering the most compelling first party cyber cover in the market.”
Additionally, CFC’s cyber insurance offering adds affirmative crime cover for a new type of cyber attack on the rise, cryptojacking, where the hacker hijacks the processing power of a victim’s computer network in order to mine cryptocurrency for their own benefit, leaving the victim to foot the bill for the increased use of bandwidth. CFC’s new cyber policy also adds affirmative cover for the replacement of hardware. ..Read More..
