As hacking, malware and ransomware attacks continue to rise, it is imperative that all utilities prepare to deal with a data breach.  Requiring credit information, accepting credit/debit card transactions and holding personally identifiable information to include Social Security and Driver’s License numbers make utilities a prime target for cyber intrusions.

Are you prepared to deal with a cyber breach?  Do you know the legal requirements for notifying affected parties and how to effectively work with regulators?  Do you have the money to pay these costs without insurance?

Bailey Special Risks (BSR) proudly offers Beazley Breach Response insurance for utilities.  This unique insurance provides a comprehensive service that protects utilities that have suffered a data breach with notification, loss control, credit monitoring services, and more.

Beazley has helped clients handle more than 500 data breaches, including many involving hundreds of thousands of records. This service is designed to meet three critical needs for utilities: speed, thoroughness, and coordination.
