Common misconceptions

I am not liable if my IT provider is hacked

Those who decide to collect and process (or have processed) information are always legally liable for its confidentiality, accessibility and correctness. If you choose to use external parties you are still liable.

We have our security organised

Even professional Cloud and IT providers recognize that they can be hacked. But when you depend on people, mistakes can always happen. Phishing links in emails, opening the wrong attachments, or sending information to the wrong email address can be an opportunity for cybercriminals to break into the corporate network. We are also seeing that third-party software can be vulnerable. Compare cyber insurance to fire insurance. Despite fire extinguishers, sprinklers and fire-resistant equipment, the risk of a fire always remains. That is why companies with excellent fire prevention have fire insurance as well.

We can do without ICT for a while

Most organisations are dependent of communication and information. Communication often takes place via the internet. Think of e-mail, IP telephony, and video calls. Every company stores information digitally. Without communication and information, almost all business processes are at a standstill. Just try to imagine what a week without email, document access and telephony looks like.

No matter the situation, insurers won't pay out anyway

Cyber incidents are legally difficult to define, thus insurance terms usually adopt a very broad definition such as "any unauthorised access”. For example, a data breach resulting from the loss of a laptop also falls under that definition. In practice, therefore, we rarely see discussion about the nature of an incident.

We are perfectly capable of responding to a cyber incident ourselves

In practice, a solid response often takes a team of outside experts, your IT provider(s) and your own organisation. For example, someone who negotiates with the hackers and performs digital forensics, or provides legal assistance. A cyber insurer can facilitate all of this. Including the costs. Besides this, we recommend to have a business continuity plan for security breaches ready. This states how business operations will continue during a cyber incident. The incident response plan helps mitigate damage on the incident. A recovery plan is there to get software and data back up and running after an incident.

In my 25 years of IT, nine were in cyber consultancy. I have asked myself whether you should insure cyber risks because prevention is always better than a cure. But if things do go wrong there is a standstill, and possible claims from third parties. The organization must then jump into action mode as soon as possible. Can you manage that damage yourself? Who do you need to call? What should you do? I believe in a complete solution: prevention, detection and response – supplemented with damage insurance and a team of First Response experts. If Meijers cannot offer the solution, then I would like to refer you to someone else. Transparency, commitment and expertise are essential in cooperation. We don't make it more attractive than it is.

I love helping people, connecting and providing security. Therefore, my relations can always count on me. I enjoy what I do and I like to radiate that. My motto is as follows: when I see someone doing something right, I compliment them. When I see something going wrong, I ask if I can help. I recently chose to specialize within Cyber, from support to consulting. I am very much looking forward to this new position. At Meijers, employees work with a drive from the heart.

Know the enemy

A common pitfall is the desire for airtight protection. That is neither possible nor necessary. It’s smarter (and cheaper) to become and to stay informed of the so-called “attack landscape”. Attack is a broad concept: it can be an error resulting in an ICT shutdown, a sudden ICT failure, an untargeted attack by a bored teenager or a targeted attack by a professional criminal organization. Additionally, you must continue to comply with laws and regulations to prevent low client confidence, damage to your image, and fines.

We are happy to talk to you about mapping out the threats specific to you so that you can take the necessary cost-effective measures.
