04 Jan Securing Your Company Against Online Hackers with California Business Insurance
California business insurance can sometimes be a gray area when it comes to financially protecting against online threats such as hackers, viruses or denial of service attacks. A relatively new form of crime, online attacks can be devastating for the business owner, particularly if sensitive data such as passwords, codes or other personal data is accessed. Not only can this result in the security of the firm being compromised, but it may result in financial ruin. By staying one step ahead of hackers, you can help keep your business secure from online threats.
Either conduct an in-house risk assessment analysis or engage an online security expert to do one for you should you consider your company to be at risk from hackers. Once the key weaknesses are identified, take steps to rectify problems. One easy way to combat this is to regularly change passwords and to restrict access to sensitive company material.
Many California business insurance policies in force now were first prepared in the days before cyber crime so you will need to check your policy to see whether or not you have adequate coverage for any online attacks. Ask the professionals any questions you may have in this area. Our agents are available to help answer your queries.
