Insurance Brokers have many qualities, but self-promotion is not one of them and over the years we have not been particularly great at publicising the benefits of using our services.

But following the recent widespread flooding, it is perhaps an appropriate time for a little blow of the brokers trumpet and an insight as to some of the work done, much of it unseen.

In the early 2000s, just around the time of the Dot Com Boom, some insurers stood up, took notice and began to develop a product designed to address the financial loss that might arise out of data breaches. This was at a time where most companies were just beginning to realise the economic potential of the Internet.

This isn’t the first and will not be the last time that I write about the danger of underinsurance, but yet another recent survey has revealed that a significant proportion of buildings in the UK are underinsured.

Whilst maintaining adequate IT security is a must, things happen that can be beyond your control or simply go wrong. Criminals are also becoming far more sophisticated and evolving ways around advancements in IT security. How confident are you that you and your staff will always follow procedures regarding passwords and security, not open that email containing a virus or leave a laptop or phone containing information on a train, plane or a bus?

There will always be unintentional human error and unfortunately also the risk of intentional damage. Tight contractual requirements with providers are also a must, but how easy will it be to obtain damages or what if that company goes bust?. And it's not just big businesses being targeted by hackers, but lots of small ones too. Whilst the large-scale hack attacks on the news often involve big companies, small companies are also at risk and often don't have the financial resources to get back on track after a hacking attack or other kinds of data loss. In fact, over a third of global targeted attacks were aimed at businesses with less than 250 employees. Cyber-attacks are quickly becoming one of the greatest risks faced by smaller companies.

More and more Mobile Applications and Non-Mobile Applications are converging on us and people are continuing to download applications without thinking. Users are asking for more seamless plug and play technology such as HDMI, USB & SD Cards bringing with them more complexity and in consequence greater vulnerability.
