Cyber risks
Cyber risks and cybercrime has become big business and can be found throughout all sections of society. The damage caused to the economy each year by cybercrime and/or cyber risks in The Netherlands was recently estimated by TNO (Netherlands Organization for Applied Scientific Research) at more than 10 billion euros.

Cyber risks

The damage consists not only of the loss of intellectual property, (sensitive) personal data (more information: Privacy desk), but includes also the risk of discontinuity of the business and reputational damage which can be suffered.

Cyber security should therefore be a top-level concern within any organization. Combatting cybercrime is no longer purely a matter of technology, also a cyber insurance can be very helpful. A cyber insurance policy cannot protect your organization form cybercrime, but it can keep business on stable financial footing should a significant security event occur.
