Three steps to keeping your business safe from a cyber incident
Cyber threats continue to evolve, and staying one step ahead of the hackers is the best way to keep your business safe.
“Cyber criminals are voracious in adapting and mutating their digital viruses, and continuous education and proactive security serve as our digital face masks,” says Meghan Hannes, Cyber Product Head at Hiscox USA.
Here’s a three-step plan to help keep your business safe.
1. Prevent a cyber attack
The best outcome is to prevent a cyber attack from happening in the first place. Hiscox cyber security insurance policies include Hiscox CyberClear Academy, a suite of tools to train your employees on how to prevent hackers from accessing your data.
2. Detect an attack early
Improving the cyber knowledge of everyone in your company will help them recognize an attack early, which can minimize the harm. Having a plan in place for dealing with an incident, and making sure everyone knows their role, is critical.
3. Mitigate the damage
Hiscox cyber security insurance not only protects you from the costs associated with a data breach, hack, or ransomware demand, but provides you with access to a team of breach response experts who will spring into action as soon as a breach is reported. Quick action by professionals will minimize the damage to your business and your reputation.
