Cyber Liability Insurance for Cambridge Startups

Entrepreneurs are drawn to Cambridge, Massachusetts to launch their Startups. Cambridge has a thriving technology scene and tech leaders are starting to take notice of the area’s accelerated growth. Kendall Square has the largest collection of tech startup office space within Cambridge.  Namely, the Cambridge Innovation Center which holds over 450 companies, from remote office space for tech giants like Amazon to small startups working from their C3 (Cambridge Coworking Community)  space. With world-class universities such as the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), there’s no shortage of industry incubators and accelerators. Cambridge clearly gives entrepreneurs access to the resources they need for success.

Startup companies are heavily technology dependent and any business storing sensitive information on computers, laptops or hand-held devices, is vulnerable to a cyberattack. Small businesses like Startups are increasingly at risk and prove to be easy targets for hackers. In fact, the Insurance Journal, reports that:

“55% of small businesses in the U.S. have experienced a data breach and that 53% have had multiple breaches.”Yet, nearly 90% of small business owners think they’re not at risk”. Often small businesses lack the resources to protect themselves and don’t detect a breach fast enough, making the effects that much more devastating. Corporate Information Technologies reports that “on average the total cost of a breach to a small business is $665,000!”
