Zurich Cyber Insurance

Cyber incidents: what you should know

Every fourth Swiss SME has already been affected by a cyber incident.
SMEs in general are often an attractive target for hackers because they invest less in their IT security.
Might your company be affected too?

How do hackers attack firms?

Blocking of IT:
so-called ransomware.

Data theft:
customer data is particularly valuable for hackers.

Denial of service:
communication systems are overwhelmed and service is denied.

Cyber fraud:
hackers entice employees to transfer money in order to enrich themselves.

Which companies are affected?

Cyber risks are a hazard for companies if they:

Carry out daily communication activities and office work on computers.

Process confidential data, e.g. health data or payment transactions for customers.

Are dependent on platforms (booking, e-commerce).

Manage their production, logistics or distribution chain automatically.

What might the cost be for my company?

Costs for the IT expert who restores the data and systems.

Ongoing operating costs (salaries, rent) in the event of a business interruption.

Compensation and defense against unjustified claims, e.g. in connection with the loss, theft or publication of confidential data.

Financial damage due to acts of deception (social engineering), ransom demands or the hacking of e-banking accounts.

IT contingency plan: How SMEs protect themselves

Nowadays, no company can afford a prolonged IT system failure. In the best case, the failure "only" costs money; in the worst case, it costs the company its existence. Every company therefore needs an IT contingency plan.
