If you really think your computer data is safe, think again.
The Heartbleed Bug that recently hit the headlines is the equivalent of someone breaking into Fort Knox. Heartbleed compromised the safe haven where many internet companies keep their security codes for web, email and messaging services and they considered it impregnable. That is why we had quotes from computer experts that ‘the internet is broken’ and ‘on a bad scale of 1 to 10, it’s 11’.
Mumsnet was the high profile site that hit the headlines, but the bug had gone unnoticed for 2 years during which the hackers obtained password and user information from many sites, so it may take time before the full consequences are known.
Most cyber risks are not covered by conventional insurance policies and if you have not already done so, you should be considering specialist cyber insurance to protect your business.
