Cyber Liability Insurance
The frequency and severity of cyber threats to Aussie business are increasing. Protect your business from digital breaches with cyber liability insurance.
What is Cyber Liability Insurance?
Cyber liability insurance is a fairly new form of cover, designed in response to the growing costs of data breaches and hacking to SMEs.
The Australian Cyber Security Centre has some great guides to cyber-security for businesses. In this day and age, especially with the growth of cyber threats, it’s important for your security and data protocols to be adequate.
Most businesses have websites that are vulnerable to cyber-attacks. Even if you don’t have a website, almost every business uses some form of accounting or cloud-based software (think MYOB, Xero, Microsoft 365, etc.). These are all vulnerabilities.

Cyber Liability insurance claim example
Damon is the practice manager for a small dental clinic. One of their staff clicks on a link within an email, and accidentally downloads malware which locks the entire practice network down, and requires $50,000 ransom to be paid in Bitcoin to unlock it.
Damon contacts the emergency cyber response line for their cyber insurance policy who immediately appoint a specialist to come and evaluate the situation. The specialist authorises payment of the $50,000 ransom, and fortunately – the system can be unlocked.
The downtime for the practice was less than 1 business day, but Damon was able to rest easy knowing that if the unlock was unsuccessful, the practice’s lost income would have been reimbursed while they tried to restore/recover their data.
