DONAU Versicherung advises: Cover cyber risks comprehensively

Cyber ​​attacks on micro, small and medium-sized companies are constantly increasing and make it necessary to optimize computer security.

Vienna (OTS) Cyber ​​insurance also reduces financial risks in the event of an attack. The cyber security check, which DONAU Versicherung offers together with Risk Experts, reveals weak points in the IT system.

The cyber security of companies, especially micro, small and medium-sized companies, has become the center of attention. A funding package from the Federal Ministry for Digital and Economic Affairs to optimize IT protection supports companies in implementing cyber security measures. The “KMU.Cybersecurity” program started in April 2022. Applications can be submitted via the Austria Wirtschafts service.

DONAU Versicherung has also set out to offer companies comprehensive solutions against cyber risks and to expand their information security.

Cyber ​​protection for companies

The speed of digitization in a world connected by the Internet brings great opportunities for companies. However, the resulting risks must be covered technically and financially. Due to the current trend of employees working from home, cyber attacks are also becoming more common in SMEs. With cyber insurance for business customers, DONAU Versicherung offers comprehensive protection against risks in the digital sector.

“Few companies are insured against the financial consequences of a cyber attack. Cyber ​​insurance is necessary for most businesses. A common argument is that the company is too small or insignificant to be an interesting target for cybercriminals. However, experience shows that any company can be affected. DONAU Versicherung closes this protection gap in the area of ​​cyber risk. By doing so, we help cushion the financial consequences of a cyber attack and keep economic damage to a minimum.”explains Wolfgang Petschko, CEO of DONAU Versicherung.

Advice with the DONAU Cybersecurity Check

An important advisory tool is the cybersecurity checkup that Risk Experts developed for DONAU. The possibilities of attacking the domain of an SME through a specially developed program are analyzed. The results of the analysis are compared with those of other companies and contain recommendations to bring IT security to the forefront.

“Today, modern and comprehensive advice for companies means that the issue of cyber insurance must be addressed.”emphasizes Reinhard Gojer, Commercial Director of DONAU. “We consider awareness of this risk to be an essential part of our customer focus and have made it a standard in our offerings. A company, regardless of its size, is only safer in the digital world if it is protected against the financial consequences of digital theft.”

Comprehensive financial security

DONAU’s cyber insurance offers comprehensive protection that can be adapted to the size of the company. Insurable items include data corruption or loss, data breaches, and payment system failures. Also included in the basic protection are damages derived from the violation of the duty of confidentiality, infected software on third-party servers or networks, and the inadequate functioning of computer systems. Insurance coverage can be expanded to include crisis management and public relations, business interruption, blackmail support and cyber fraud and cyber theft.

Support in case of cyber damage

“DONAU’s cyber protection completes the offer for companies and is an essential part of our offer”emphasizes Wolfgang Petschko. “Advice, service and assistance in the event of a claim are the primary tasks of an insurance company. For our business customers, we offer a guide that presents our support services transparently and clearly.”
