QBE North America announces The Solution for Cyber Risk to help protect against the growing threat of cyber intrusions

NEW YORK, Feb. 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- QBE North America, an operating division of QBE Insurance Group Limited, today announced the launch of The Solution for Cyber Risk. This Privacy & Network Security offering is the latest addition in the company's continued Specialty Insurance expansion.

Cyber-attacks, including privacy violations and breaches of network security, are becoming more sophisticated, more dangerous, and more prevalent. Billions of dollars are lost every year repairing systems hit by such attacks. The Solution for Cyber Risk is a comprehensive product suite that addresses these potentially devastating exposures, and protects businesses in the event sensitive or protected data is compromised.

The Solution for Cyber Risk can help customers be proactive in mitigating the risk of security breaches, and respond quickly if such an event occurs. The Solution for Cyber Risk includes access to our eRiskHub® portal, powered by NetDiligence®. eRiskHub® helps organizations combat cyber losses through online, mobile-friendly access to loss control expertise, risk management tools, cyber risk news and education, and breach response guidance.

"Most organizations will experience a data breach at some point, whether from a computer glitch, a hacker, or an unfortunate employee mistake. The costs of such an incident can be steep and long-lasting, including losing customer confidence and shareholder value," said Steven Anderson, Vice President and Product Executive – Privacy & Network Security. "To address these risks, QBE has created a custom privacy and network security solution that will minimize them, and help safeguard their organizations from cyber vulnerability."

Coverages contained in the new policy include:

  • privacy and network security liability
  • media liability
  • data breach notification costs
  • restoration costs
  • regulatory defense and penalty costs
  • public relations costs
  • forensics costs
  • credit monitoring costs
  • business interruption and extortion

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations.
