We’ve all seen the recent news where big name companies have been victims of security breaches putting hundreds of thousands of their customers at risk for stolen identities.
Is Cyber Liability Insurance just a new fad or does your nonprofit need to be concerned with this new trend in information safety? This valuable coverage provides insurance protection for your nonprofit where your general liability insurance doesn’t. If you collect personal information from donors, community members, volunteers, employees, or anybody else online or offline, your nonprofit should take a moment to learn about the risks you face and how you can protect your organization.
By collecting confidential information like bank information, names, social security numbers, and addresses, your nonprofit is at risk for this information to be compromised through hackers in the event the data is stored electronically or through theft if it is stored in paper files. Most states now have laws that require you to send out mass notices to all that could have been impacted as well as provide credit monitoring. Without Cyber Liability Insurance, this can be a costly process that hurts big name companies and destroys smaller organizations like your nonprofit.
Cyber Liability Insurance provides coverage for claims from third-parties caused by a data breach as well as expense coverage for following your state laws to notify and provide credit monitoring to those who may have been impacted by a breach of data or security. Even though the name says “cyber”, this policy does extend coverage to paper files and computers that contain confidential information.
