Cyber risks are one of the most significant risks facing UK businesses today with cyber-attacks continuing to grow in both frequency and scale.
Cyber risks include denial of systems and networks by means of human, natural or viral intervention in addition to data lost through error or theft. Cyber losses often pose complex insurance coverage and recovery issues for which specialist insurance advice is required.
