Safeguard Your Business with PPA Cyber Insurance: A Must-Have in the Digital Age

In the swiftly evolving digital landscape, PPA is excited to announce a new benefit for our members: Cyber Insurance. This addition to our suite of insurance offerings for members is designed to fortify your business against the ever-growing threat oyf cyber-attacks, offering peace of mind and a robust defense system.

The Critical Need for Cybercrime Protection

The importance of cybercrime protection cannot be overstated. We hate to be the bearer of bad news, but in the world of cybercrime, small businesses are perceived as low-hanging fruit, and they often are more vulnerable due to their limited resources and a lack of cybersecurity training. In the end, cybercriminals don’t discriminate and businesses of all sizes face risks.

Think of cyber insurance as your critical ally in our current landscape. A comprehensive solution that not only addresses the aftermath, but also the prevention of cyber incidents is the best way to protect yourself! From the theft of funds and data to damage to your digital assets, it's crucial for photographers to receive support and guidance in the wake of an attack. In instances of ransomware, PPA cyber insurance can assist photographers in recovering their data, eliminating the need to pay a ransom. Remember, internet security is about being proactive and staying ahead of potential threats! 

It’s a common misconception that merely having robust IT security measures or outsourcing IT can provide adequate protection. Unfortunately, while that might be helpful, these strategies alone aren’t enough to protect a business against the sophistication of how cybercrime is carried out. Cyber insurance provides additional, critical layers of security. And of course, it’s still important for businesses to adopt basic cyber security controls to mitigate the risk of an attack.

Empowering Your Business Against Cyber Threats

We urge all PPA members to take this important step towards securing their business! In today's digital age, the question is not if but when a cyber-attack will occur. PPA Cyber Insurance is available for purchase at a discount through Lockton Affinity and is not automatically included in PPA membership.
