SBI General Insurance (SBIG), one of India’s fastest growing General Insurance company has announced the launch of its new product – Cyber Defence Insurance. The product will offer cyber insurance to businesses. While in the initial phase the intent is to focus on SME, mid-market businesses, it can cater to the larger business conglomerates as well.

This niche product ‘Cyber Defence Insurance’ offers protection against the growing threat of cyber breaches. It is designed to protect against major insurablecyber exposures like hacking attacks,identity theft, disclosure of sensitive information and business interruption.

Over the years, digital advancement has exponentially increased cyber risk exposures for almost all types and sizes of business. Cyber attackerswork on the theory that majority of the businessesdo not spend adequatelyon shoring up their cybersecurity. They work on the presumption that cyberattack techniques that have been used on large enterprises will work on relatively smaller enterprises.It therefore extremely important for businesses to be well prepared for these emergencies. To help defend such businesses from resultant financial and/or reputational losses, SBIG has its new product offering“Cyber Defence Insurance”.

Speaking on this development Mr.Subramanyam B, Head – Underwriting &Reinsurance, SBI General Insurance said, “Cyber insurance is an emerging sector for increasing resilience among businesses and is one solid step in shoring up the cyber defence. Because there is no 100% security, businesses need to move towards cyber-resilience combining security measures& risk management.With this product we, at SBIG, offer various post event services that a customer needs when a cyber event happens. This includesdelivery of a24 /7 incident response service and offers the policy holder immediate support when a cyber incident occurs. This in turn ensures that our customers are well protected at every step in their growing business.”

SBIG’S Cyber Defense comes with CyRUSS (Cyber Risk Underwriting & Solution Suite) – a cloud-based tool for Commercial Cyber polices including risk assessment, ongoing risk management and claim management as well. This will be unique to SBIG.
