As the WannaCry ransomware virus outbreak in 2017 has proven, cyber crime is a serious issue. In fact, it's one of the top five economic crimes in Canada, resulting in millions of dollars of losses every year. Don't leave your business vulnerable to technological theft, with cyber crime insurance in Woodstock you can be ready when a hacker comes calling.

Cyber crime is prolific and varied. From data breeches designed to plunder a business' private records for customer information, to electronic impersonation and fraud, to computer encrypting ransomware, there is no shortage of ways for hackers to ruin your day. Any one of these crimes can result in crippling losses, either through the direct result of theft, the loss of critical information, or the loss of face and reputation in the wake of a breech.

Businesses don't even need to be independently targeted anymore. The nature of spreading viruses like WannaCry is to just hit every system it can and hold all the files it can hostage for a ransom. Any employee carelessly opening an email attachment or accidentally running a malicious script can infect your entire network, rendering you unable to operate until you pay whatever price the hackers are demanding. When you think about it in those terms, it's not really a matter of if your business will be impacted by a serious cyber crime, but when.

No matter what kind of business you run, you can't afford to take that chance. A cyber crime insurance policy in Woodstock will make sure you have the financial protection and resources you need to survive a hacking incident. Speak to one of our knowledgeable brokers about your options today.
