Years ago, before the internet, smart phones, and worldwide connectivity, small businesses didn’t need to worry about cybercrime.
Today, cyber criminals are everywhere. They’re sophisticated and organized, with resources beyond our imaginations. And they’re not just targeting large corporations. They’re searching for vulnerabilities. They’re testing cyber security measures, trying to access personal information or business funds, and looking for computers left unattended.
With limited budgets or outsourced IT functions, small businesses are often more vulnerable than their larger counterparts.
Most don’t have a disaster recovery plan or the funds to deal with the consequences of a cyberattack. Which means a cybercrime can damage or even cripple a small business.
That’s why Erie Insurance designed our Cyber Suite policy—to protect the businesses that drive our economy: our small business clients have a better chance of anticipating and preventing cyber risks – and can feel confident that if something happens, their claim will be expertly managed, so they can get back to business quickly.
Our clients are covered for ransomware, computer attacks and fraud, misdirected payments, and identity theft.
Coverages form a safety net that provides essential, affordable protection for small businesses who rely on computers, connections, and data to do their jobs.
And while small businesses tend to focus on fixing their systems following a cyber event, we can also help with incident response planning, cyber security and privacy risk mitigation and employee training.
We are there with the protection they need. Because it’s not a matter of if, but when a small business will experience a cybercrime. With Erie Insurance, they’ll be ready.
