68% of small business has experienced a cyber attack in the last 12 months (2019)
47% of businesses between 100 – 1,000 employees are hit with a ransomware attack last year.
Avg cost to remediate a ransomware attack is $505,827 for a company between 100 and 1,000 employees.
Avg cost for a SMALL business data breach is $120,000 to $1.24 million (2019)
Of small business, 37% suffer financial loss, 25% file for bankruptcy, and over 9.7% go out of business.
Part of these loses included liability for lost credit card data (some were hundreds of thousands of dollars), plus the credibility—YOU lost my data in St. Louis. Fortunately, over 89% with cyber insurance said it covered their losses—and 87% were HAPPY they had it. Especially, when you consider the average annual cost for $1 million in coverage is between $1,000 to $7k per year (depending on size and industry). It’s a fraction of the cost of the overall IT budget (a single IT employee could be $60k)—yet it could SAVE their business.
Good IT security helps—but in all these cases… the results of getting HIT (even with everything in place (Even Steve Jobs got hit))—can SHUT YOU DOWN.
You may want to consider…
It covers you WHEN you still get hacked (ransomware or breached) in St. Louis
Pays to get your systems restored (when possible), or replaced, so you can get your business back up and running
Covers the costs of lost revenue while your business is down
Helps pay to harden your systems—to reduce future attacks
Drastically reduces liability from exposed confidential data
Helps remediate your reputation
Protects you from the cost of damages to third parties
Some do not provide or recommend the right coverage. When considering cyber insurance, you need to make sure it covers the most common problems including breach, ransomware, cyber-crime, cyber terrorism—plus has the capability to properly evaluate your risk (based on actual data, not black-box formulas).
Not all carriers help you avoid a breech. They don’t do a proper analysis in advance of your potential problems, do not provide security awareness training, a risk reduction plan, or proper information—critical if a problem occurs.
Most do not provide immediate help. Most insurance companies do not know your business, and require you to hunt for an approved security expert if a breech occurs
They don’t recommend or leverage existing cyber-security tools. You need tools that will be effective in preventing and responding to St. Louis cyber attacks, plus FAST expert help, preferably from someone who knows your business, IT systems and team.
Most do not have any sources to help FIX your breach. Some will pay to replace, but do little to help you recover (which is the greater loss)—and most don’t even know who can help you.
So, how do you get the RIGHT coverage, avoid a breech if possible, get the FASTEST help if it occurs, with the right tools and HELP to fix the problem—so you can withstand an attack and recover the quickest… so you can get back to your business?
