The continuing COVID-19 crisis has seen increased demand from clients for help in managing key risk exposures which have arisen or been heightened by the pandemic.

This guide details four areas where clients are most commonly seeking help and explains how Gallagher can support your business starting with an initial consultation.

Cyber Insurance

Cyber Risk Consultation

The widespread move to home working has led to a dramatic increase in organisations’ exposures to data, cyber and extortion risks.

With GDPR and similar regulations putting the onus on identifying and reporting a breach quickly, it’s now more important than ever to know how to respond in the event of a breach. We want to help you face the future with confidence, by not only aiding you with reducing the likelihood of a breach, but also by giving you the tools you need to get back up and running with minimal damage if one does occur.

One of our specialists will undertake a complimentary 30-minute consultation to review your vulnerability. Before the call, they’ll search some publicly available sources to help identify potential weaknesses in your IT systems which could make you more of a target.

COVID-19 Risk Assessment

COVID-19 Risk Assessment Validation

Insurers will expect organisations to be and continue to remain compliant with existing legal obligations, specifically the duty imposed on all employers by the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 to protect the health, safety and welfare of their employees and others affected by their operations.

Gallagher’s COVID-19 Risk Assessment Validation service provides an independent check that you’re complying with your legal obligations and can demonstrate this e.g. to HSE or in defence of a claim.

We’ll review your risk assessment against the most up-to-date legislation, COVID-19 guidance and protocols. The cost of this service will vary based on the complexity and number of documents that require reviewing.

HSE Mental Health Compliance Review

Insurers and employment lawyers have seen a rise of around 30% in mental health related claims since March 2020. Mental health is a ‘protected characteristic’ under Disability Discrimination law and the HSE has received Government funding to increase inspection activity.

The team will support you with a complimentary phone consultation which will test your organisation’s compliance with HSE Stress Management Standards. They will provide a summary of our findings along with a proposed fixed price action plan if required.

Crisis Resilience

Security, Risk and Crisis Resilience Consultation

The effects of the pandemic won’t just be economic. It’s likely COVID-19 will have consequences in relation to criminality, civil unrest and terrorism. At Gallagher we have designed a solution that can help you address your duty of care to employees and the public, and minimise disruption to your business.

Our Crisis Resilience team can support your business by offering a complimentary consultation. During the consultation, one of our crisis resilience specialists will examine the ways in which you’re currently anticipating security risks, assess your risk mitigation measures and procedures and review your crisis response plan to determine its suitability by addressing any other concerns you may have.
