Cyber incidents – the underestimated risk

In the digitised world, cyber attacks today can have serious consequences. IT alone cannot overcome these growing challenges. Companies should therefore consider the matter holistically and act accordingly.

Hackers just have to find one small vulnerability in a system – and virtually every company has one – or trick one employee. Then they already have access to external computers and can steal data and infect networks. Once the IT is paralysed, the machines themselves quickly shut down, too. The damages of cyber attacks are enormous and can even become an existential threat. And it’s not necessarily criminal acts that can cause damage – more frequently it is technical problems or a company’s own employees that put the company at risk.

Read on to find out where cyber risks are hiding and how you can equip your company to face these new challenges. You can identify vulnerabilities in your company with the cyber risk analysis or a pen test. Different types of insurance cover can be combined based on your risk situation. Our experts from risk and insurance management will be happy to advise you on the details.
