After a month’s break, our regular cyber webinar series returns with a bang. For this session, I will be joined by Mark Fawcett and Luke Fardell from Control Risks – Hiscox’s primary incident response partner. They will take a deep dive in to one of our most interesting claims from earlier this year.

This was – on the face of it - just a ransomware attack against a small business, but it also involved a case of mistaken identity, multiple assailants and several other twists and turns along the way. Mark and Luke will walk through how they handled this challenging matter, which will help bring to life how any company can find themselves in the crosshairs of attackers, but that recovery isn’t just as simple as plugging in a backup, and how having cyber insurance can prove invaluable.

We are delighted to be attending Insurance Connect, a virtual conference hosted by Insurance Business, where we will be showcasing our schemes offering. It's FREE for brokers to attend Insurance Connect, register now (external link).

Lee Turner, National Schemes Sales Manager at Hiscox will be presenting a session on: Schemes: It’s Now or Never – Learn to identify, grow and manage your Scheme

Helping your Technology clients claim tax incentives with Luke Hamm, CEO, GovGrant and Tom Dixon, Head of Technology, Hiscox. 

If your clients are in the Technology sector they may be able to claim £000’s back - join this webinar to find out how you can help your clients through our partnership with GovGrant, which provides Hiscox clients with access to a full range of R&D tax relief and IP services at preferential rates. 

Here’s what clients have been saying about GovGrant:

“We are so pleased with the GovGrant service that we now introduce companies within our network who are unaware of the scheme or did not believe they qualified for R&D tax credit and relief.”

 “My words of advice would be; you may think that only scientific or manufacturing type companies qualify for R&D tax credits but that couldn’t be further from the truth, as every kind of business implements new processes, procedures and systems that are highly likely to attract the Tax credit. We paid on a no win, no fee basis so we had nothing to lose and everything to gain.”
