Whether your business is a small, family run shop or a large corporation the impact of losing access to your computer systems or data can be disruptive enough to bring your business to a standstill.
If a company has had their systems/data compromised, they are now legally obligated by the EU General Data Protection Regulations (GDPR) to report it to the Information Commissioners Office (ICO) and can be fined up to 4% of their annual turnover or €20million (whichever is greater) and so a Cyber Security and Computer Insurance policy should now be considered a business essential.
