about Cyber Insurance.


Cyber insurance refers to a specialised type of insurance coverage designed to mitigate financial losses resulting from cyber incidents. As businesses and individuals become increasingly reliant on digital systems, cyber threats such as data breaches, ransomware attacks, and hacking incidents have surged in frequency and severity. Cyber insurance steps in to offer protection by providing financial support in the aftermath of these events.

Just as traditional insurance covers risks like property damage or liability, cyber insurance focuses on the unique risks of the digital realm. It typically includes coverage for expenses related to data breaches, such as legal fees, notification costs, and credit monitoring for affected parties. Moreover, it may extend to cover financial losses due to business interruption, cyber extortion, and data recovery expenses.

Cyber insurance policies are tailored to the specific needs and risk profiles of the insured, as the nature and scale of cyber threats can vary widely across industries and organizations. Premiums depend on factors like the company’s size, industry, security measures in place, and past incidents.

By transferring some of the financial risk associated with cyber incidents to an insurance provider, businesses and individuals can better manage the potentially catastrophic financial consequences of cyberattacks. Cyber insurance serves as a crucial component of a comprehensive cybersecurity strategy, working alongside preventive measures to create a more resilient defence against the evolving landscape of cyber threats.

Research carried out by Aviva in December 2023 found that businesses are 67% more likely to have experienced a cyber incident than a physical theft and almost five times as likely to have experienced a cyber attack as a fire, so every business and organisation must take this risk very seriously and insure against it.

Our architect introduced us to Sam when we renovated our house. You asked all the right questions to understand our needs and then recommended a suitable insurance policy that dovetailed with the works contract and protected us against getting sued.

Review Quotes
I have insured my home and business with Samson Insurance for a few years and would highly recommend their advice and service.
David Piha, Double Impact IT Solutions
Review Quotes
We were introduced to you before embarking on a major building project on our home. Our then insurer would not offer us cover due to the extent and nature of the works and the prolonged unoccupancy. You explained to us all about your Renovation policy with Contract Works and Liabilities cover and how to make sure that all aspects were adequately covered. You worked with our architect, surveyor and contractors to gain all the necessary information in order to satisfy underwriters and when we had a claim during the project you dealt with it professionally and swiftly such that there was no delay to the project.

We have since switched our insurance to Samson Insurance Services.

Thank you!

R. Sedgley, London
