Why Insure With Hamilton Robertson?

If you own or manage a care home, you will no doubt be aware of the genuine and current threat or cyber crime. A relatively new risk over the past 155 years that we all have to consider, cyber attacks can occur to all companies, no matter how well protected the IT system.

A hacker may want to breach a care home’s firewalls and gain access to sensitive data, not just from clients but also staff and suppliers. If they gain hold of such data, what could they do with it? This kind of information in the wrong hands could be very costly for the people in your care home as well as your business overall.

Also it is important to note that the new GDPR rules which require you to be extra careful with data mean that you could receive fines of up to 4% of your annual turnover if there is such a leak. Consider the legal costs as well as the disruption to your business if this were to happen. Business Interruption is very costly and damage to your reputation is immeasurable!
