British specialist re/insurer Beazley has added a number of features to its cyber insurance product to provide enhanced coverage to UK businesses against a cyber-attack.

Forms for both its Beazley Breach Response (BBR) and InfoSec offerings have been streamlined to provide simpler and user-friendly policies to customers.

BBR has been designed for small- and medium-sized enterprises whereas Beazley’s InfoSec is aimed at offering information security and privacy coverage to larger corporations.

The company has integrated first-party covers, such as cyber extortion, data recovery costs, business interruption, contingent business interruption and e-crime, into the main policy instead of adding them by endorsement.

This, in turn, will make coverage offered clearer to understand for brokers and customers.

Additionally, the company has extended access to its in-house breach response unit, BBR Services, to give larger organisations the option to use the services under their policies.
