Bad Things Do Happen

Over 40% of American businesses say they have experienced a data breach during the past year, and small entities are the target in more than half the attacks. Local shops, restaurants, contractors, landlords and all types of service businesses appear in breach reports. What would you do if a data breach happened to you? How would you protect your customers and your business?

The clock is ticking after a breach. Under most state and some federal laws, you must investigate, find the cause of breach and notify affected customers promptly. Delays can result in fines and lawsuits.

Burger and a Breach — A $30,000 tab

A restaurant learned from its credit card companies that it had a breach. Immediately forensic investigators were sent and found 6,000 affected customers. Privacy counsel recommended the insured post notifications on its website and in print media to comply with the law.  Credit Monitoring and ID Assistance services were offered.  The total bill for all services was $30,000.  Thanks to Cyber-Data Compromise Coverage like ours, their tab was covered.
