ProAktive Commercial Insurance Brokers

ProAktive commercial insurance brokers are seeing an increase in local business awareness of the need for protection against cyber crime and cyber attacks on their computer systems.

Cyber and data risk insurance is designed to support and protect your business if it experiences a data breach or is the subject of an attack by a malicious hacker that affects your computer systems.

For cyber criminals, small businesses are big business. We’ve all heard of the large household names who have suffered a cyber attack. ProAktive now find that more and more local companies are readily open to purchasing added levels of protection to manage their risk when it comes to 21st century threats. Account Executive, Peter Ryder, spoke recently at a joint event with Taylor and Emmet Solicitors about how different risks are emerging and how best to protect your business, its data and its reputation.

Peter says, “We are now seeing an ever increasing number of incidents that are affecting our clients from rogue emails requesting money to be sent to fake bank accounts and data being held to ransom until a payment is made.  All these new emerging risks won’t be covered under standard policies and so talking to an insurance professional about Cyber and Data covers is vital.”

As you will have heard, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) changes will affect companies of all sizes from 25th May 2018 and business owners can’t get away from articles relating to advice and information surrounding the regulatory change. In fact with so many blogs and articles available on the subject, it made sense to ProAktive to have a presentation on this very topic at their next upcoming popular Business Breakfast Club in Doncaster. It’s no surprise that the event is fully booked.

The company are Premium Partners of the Sheffield Chamber and hold regular risk management seminars that are all free to attend. Their offices are in Sheffield (S9) and Doncaster and therefore the events are scattered across the Sheffield City Region. You can contact Natalie Wilson to be added to their invitation mailing list. Follow them on Twitter and or Linkedin.

Since ProAktive’s formation in 1975, the company has always strived to provide high quality insurance solutions to their clients. Whilst the business has evolved to incorporate a real focus on risk management, their founding principles remain true. They’re proud to have been awarded the prestigious title ‘Chartered Insurance Broker’ by the Chartered Insurance Institute.
