Did you know that nearly 2,244 cyberattacks happen each day? This means that hackers get computer access and steal or corrupt files and sensitive information. A hacker can access this data in several different ways—by breaking through firewalls, sending phishing emails, installing malware onto your computer, and so much more. 

Why do hackers want to steal your information? The most common threat companies face an attacker holding your data for ransom. This means that they will hold your information hostage until you pay them a specified amount of money. According to Cisco, 53% of cyberattacks resulted in damages of $500,000 or more. However, breaches can also give hackers access to complete control of a user’s computer or smartphone and access to online accounts. 


How Does This Affect You?


Each day, your company’s information and data are at risk. If you store any customer information, like names and addresses, payment information, etc., their data is at risk of a cyberattack. One of the most common stolen data is customer payment information, including their credit card number.  

So, what exactly does this mean for you? Being aware of potential data breaches isn’t enough—your company needs to have a protective plan of action in place if this ever happens to your business and its data. Without protection in place, your company could lose hundreds—if not thousands—of dollars if a data breach occurs. When a cyberattack takes place, you, as a company, lose credibility and trust from your customers. 

How can you prevent this from happening? You can purchase a window cleaning policy with Cyber Liability Insurance from Insurance Canopy in less than ten minutes. If you already have a policy with Insurance Canopy, you can add it to your existing policy. If you are not a current customer, you can purchase this policy at the affordable price of $99 per year. This is a small investment to protect your business and its sensitive information from hackers.
