CYBER LIABILITY INSURANCE
Cyber Liability Insurance is a type of insurance coverage designed to protect businesses and organizations from financial losses and liabilities resulting from cyberattacks and data breaches.
As businesses increasingly rely on digital technologies and handle sensitive data, the risks associated with cyber threats have become more significant. Cyber Liability Insurance helps mitigate these risks by providing coverage for various expenses incurred in the aftermath of a cyber incident.
