The Cyber Insurance market continues to firm with premium increases and contraction of coverage. Many Cyber Insurance providers have minimum requirements you must have in place before they will offer terms. For example, Social Engineering coverage can be hard to find if you are not using multi-factor authentication.
If you haven't thought of Cyber Insurance in the past, with the increase of Cyber Crime, this is the time to check the marketplace.

Privacy breaches and information security exposures affect more and more small businesses every year. Your office policy and/or professional liability policy may contain a small amount of cyber protection but for complete protection you need a separate Cyber Liability Insurance policy. Whether it is your system that is affected or a clients system that you have unknowingly infected with malware, you are at risk. You can protect your business from great financial exposure by putting in place a cyber liability plan. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will contact you to discuss this important piece of your risk management program.
Heading into 2020 with the proper coverage makes for a great New Year!
Thanksgiving is next week and Christmas is just around the corner. As we approach the end of one year and the beginning of the next it is a great time to review your personal and business insurance needs. Have your disability and life insurance plans kept up with your increased earnings and needs? Have you looked at the current property limits on your business insurance policy to make sure they are up to date? Contact us at Harold Diers & Co. to schedule a coverage review. Email us at email@example.com.
Cyber Discussions with Employees
Are you discussing Cyber Liability with your employees? If so, congratulations...you are ahead of the game! If not, now is the time to begin. Talk to your employees about suspicious email messages. Phishing emails are a great way for criminals to gain access to your system. Social Engineering risks are growing as well. A criminal can make an email look like it is coming from one of your regular email contacts. They will look for patterns and jump right into the middle of an email string. Before you know it you are opening up their attachments giving them access or sending off money you think is going to a client. If you think Halloween is scary.....it's nothing compared to the cyber criminal's potential!

Cyber Liability Threats to Small Business
Does your business accept credit cards? Do you store client or patient information in the Cloud? Do you do business with vendors in a manner where you transmit protected health or personal information electronically? If you answer yes to any one of these questions, you have a cyber liability exposure. Contact us today to discuss your cyber liability insurance needs.
Flood Season Approaches with Spring!
Spring will soon be upon us. With the thaw comes melting and Spring rains. Most businesses decline flood coverage unless they are in a Federal Flood zone where coverage is mandated. However, flooding can occur anywhere! We can assist you with insurance protection you need should your business suffer a loss from a flood. But don't wait! When flooding is imminent the availability of flood insurance usually stops. Contact Harold Diers & Company to discuss your flood insurance needs.

Welcome to 2018! Let's Get Busy!
Welcome to 2018! It always seems that in January we not only start a new year but we all want to start fresh with business and personal goals. Whether it is organizing your closet, getting paperwork ready for taxes, eating healthier, losing weight, etc we all want to do something different in the new year.
I know I have been caught up in the January changes. From trying to organize my office and de-clutter everything else I feel a strange energy to clean up what I left undone in 2017.
So this is a great time to look at your insurance program to see what needs to be updated or changed. Did you form a new corporation in the past year? Add new equipment to your office? Does it look like you will need to update your disability and business overhead limits due to increased earnings?
Whatever you need, contact Harold Diers & Company for a comprehensive review of your overall insurance portfolio. If we don't know about the changes to your business or personal needs, we can't help you stay on top of them!
