ForeFront Portfolio 3.0SM

CyberSecurity Insurance

A data breach can result from a simple mistake. Can you afford it?

Technology your company relies on to conduct its business may also increase its vulnerability to costly electronic security threats. In today's wired world, cyber attacks on businesses are increasingly common, and experts report that cyber attacks worldwide have been rising steadily. In a 2010 survey of more than 2,100 companies worldwide, Symantec Corporation found that 73% of small and midsized companies experienced a cyber attack in the past year, and that 30% of the attacks were "somewhat/extremely effective."1 Symantec also found that the number of cyber attacks on enterprises increased 93% in 2010 over 2009.2 That's why Chubb created ForeFront Portfolio 3.0SM CyberSecurity Insurance specifically for private companies like yours.

Why your company needs cyber insurance:

· A security breach could result in losses of

hundreds of thousands or even millions of dollars, not to mention an incalculable loss of reputation.

Data breach incidents cost U.S. companies an average of $194 per compromised customer record. ­The Ponemon Institute (2012)

· The culprit may be someone close to your

business...or could live halfway around the globe.

· A breach can result from a simple mistake. An

employee might misplace a laptop, Blackberry, or computer tapes or leave these in an unsecured location, such as an unlocked car.

ForeFront Portfolio 3.0 CyberSecurity Insurance highlights:

Privacy notification expenses covered (voluntary on part of customer with limits approach or as required by law with number of affected persons approach). Crisis management and privacy notification expenses covered even if no cyber liability claim and covers cost of legal counsel and information security forensics investigators. Extra expense coverage has no retention and is triggered even if system impairment is potential.

· Federal or state laws may mandate that your

company take (and bear the expense of) certain measures in the event of a security breach.

· The more people from whom your company

collects personal information, the broader your exposure and the more you need insurance protection.
