Cyber Liability claims scenarios

Digital threats to your business can take many forms, from phishing to ransomware, or even a negligent employee. But no matter what approach befalls your company, the financial (and often reputational) damage caused by a cyber attack can be devastating.

According to the Office of National Statistics, 39% of UK businesses identified a cyber attack in 2022, with the most common attack method being phishing (83%).

Alongside this, when looking at the cost of breaches with a material outcome, such as loss of money or data, the average cost to small businesses in 2022 was £3,080. When focusing on just medium and large businesses, the figure rose to £19,400.

To highlight some common examples of cyber attack, one of our insurer partners, Aviva, have created some Cyber Liability claims scenarios. These scenarios highlight some examples of typical Cyber Liability claims and also show how losses can quickly accumulate.
