Why buy Cyber insurance?

For most freelancers, your laptop or computer equipment will be an essential tool to complete your work. Could you manage if you lost access to your devices, data and software? And what disruption and loss of earnings might this have on your business?

Cyber-attacks continue to rise. Many businesses have appeared in the news over the last year as victims of cyber or malware attacks. These attacks caused business disruption for days, weeks, and in some cases even months. As a freelancer, you most likely don’t have an expert IT team at your disposal, so having cyber insurance is even more important.
