A cyber security firm, Stormshield, which counts the French government among its clients, has revealed that malicious actors gained access to a technical portal used by Stormshield's customers and partners. Whilst only 200 customer accounts were affected (with personal data being accessed and viewed), this incident demonstrates that even the most cyber aware companies are vulnerable to an attack. It is also worth remembering the FireEye (a much larger cyber security firm) incident which only recently took place at the end of last year. 

Regardless of the size or services provided, all organisations should recognise that it is a matter of "when" and not "if" they fall victim to a cyber attack. Insurance solutions are there to alleviate the damage as much as possible so that companies can quickly recover and conduct business as usual.
