From your brand reputation to employee and financial data, cyber attacks are increasing in their frequency and their intensity. Couple that with the need to comply with regulations like the GDPR and it can seem overwhelming. It doesn’t have to be. Gallagher’s cyber liability insurance team is ready to customize the solutions that can keep your organization and all its information flowing smoother and safer.
Protection for a new class of cyber risks

Assessing and understanding known and unknown risks within the cyber liability scope is complex. It requires expertise and an aggressive approach to understand how threats are emerging and how coverage can be evolved to protect your organization. Using ‘traditional’ insurance coverage as a benchmark, the cyber liability insurance and risk management team builds a stronghold of support to confront and protect against developing risks so you are fully prepared. We broker information security services and insurance products to combat and protect against the full spectrum of cyber risks. Our cyber liability insurance practice process and strategies include: analysis of current cyber risk coverage gaps; identifying potential future gaps in coverage based on trends and expectations of carriers; matching exposures to these potential gaps and; designing risk management solutions.
