Cyber Security

Protecting what matters with Speck Insurance & Financial Services PLLC

“Your customer data has been hacked” is a phrase you hope to never hear and Speck Insurance is dedicated to making sure you don’t. We offer small businesses solutions and protection through Data Theft Risk Management and Insurance.

Anthem joined Chase, Home Depot, Sony and Target in the growing list of businesses affected by cyber attacks in the news. While the loss of sensitive and confidential customer information and the associated financial costs is a distressing prospect, victims of data theft also face regulatory fines and penalties, extensive recovery and reimbursement costs, as well as a loss of consumer and public confidence.

Cyber security incidents have surged 38% since 2014.
Cyber Security Breaches Infographic
Over 169 million personal records were exposed in 2015, stemming from 781 publicized breaches across the financial, business, education, government and healthcare sectors.
Only 38 percent of global organizations claim they are prepared to handle a sophisticated cyber attack.
The most expensive computer virus of all time caused $38.5 billion worth of damage.
60% of small businesses victimized by cyber attacks go out of business within six months of the data breach incident.

Small businesses face many cyber threats including:

  • Negligence
  • Stolen equipment
  • Lost mobile devices
  • Rogue employees
  • Network security failure

Examples of cyber claim situations:

  • Malicious hacking of a system shutting down computer systems for an extended period of time resulting in loss of income and extra expense
  • A disgruntled employee spreads virus into computer system destroying data (and backup sources) resulting in expenses to investigate and recreate data
  • Teenage hacker sabotages data network with Crypto-Locker type malware, and demands as extortion fee of $50,000 to unlock your own data
  • Extortion demands of $25,000 to prevent your sensitive customer data from being released on the internet, identity thieves and the general public.

Reading and comprehending a “client” or “supplier” contract is daunting – knowing what you are liable for and committing to,  are there risks you need to consider, does your insurance cover you – all of this is tough. With Sheree Speck as my agent I feel I have an expert partner analyzing what I am committing to and what I need coverage for – it is very comforting. I have saved a so much money and have so much more support since working with Speck. All of my business policies, including cyber are with Speck. The team is very quick to respond to requests and questions I feel like I am their favorite client – it is a really good feeling!
