The GCSB has warned businesses to expect more cyber attacks, with the comment that you should now have the mindset that it is no longer a matter of “if” you are attacked but “when”.

Businesses, especially those in critical organisations such as Government or infrastructure, have been urged to take extra vigilance around cyber attacks.

The GCSB's advice is for companies not only to build their resilience to these types of attacks but also to ensure that their supply chains are protected.

They commented that organisations need to make sure that they are not only governing cyber security at an organisational level but being prepared for an attack to happen not “if” but “when”.

The agency said it recorded 404 cyber threat incidents last year, up 15% on the previous year.

With the increase in attacks, some of a very high profile nature, ICIB has prepared some information around the insurance options you can put in place to help protect your business. 

It is important to note that cyber insurance does not just cover the costs you incur if there is a loss but also offers a range of additional services that help mitigate your cyber risks before an attack even happens.
