I already have insurance through my general liability insurance policy. Do I need more?
While general liability insurance policies may provide some coverage for cyber incidents, the coverage amount is usually very small and may not provide full coverage for all cyber incidents. We recommend that all businesses purchase a supplemental cyber liability insurance policy. These policies are specifically designed to support and help companies in the event of a cyber incident and offer coverage limits better aligned with the true costs of a cyber incident.
I already have a cyber liability insurance policy. Am I still eligible?
