Protect your charity from ever-increasing cyber risks

With over a quarter of charities experiencing a cyber breach in 2020*, the risks of becoming a victim to a phishing attack, ransomware or other cyber hack has never been greater.

Combine this with the potential fines and penalties your organisation could face under GDPR following a data breach (up to £10m or 2% of annual turnover, whichever is greater) and the subsequent disruption and reputational damage and you can see why having appropriate cyber insurance in place is essential.

What does cyber insurance for charities cover?

A Cyber Insurance policy will help protect your charity from the moment a breach is identified. With over 40 years’ experience in the charity insurance sector, we can help you find the best policy for your charity’s needs.

An effective policy won’t just cover financial losses incurred, it will also provide access to leading specialists in both cyber security and legal matters that may occur in resolving and containing the breach.

The responsibility for identifying the risks your charity could be exposed to will sit with your trustees and committee. To help, our expert team will take time to understand the risks your organisation faces, we’ll then advise you on the appropriate level of protection you need.

Our independent, ethical team will make recommendations based on:

  • The type of information you hold (personal, sensitive and confidential)
  • The size of your charity and the volume of information you hold (which will be linked to the activities of your charity)
  • Technology risks i.e. how data is stored, shared and accessed.
