606 has always given our customers comprehensive cover and market leading service. We pride ourselves on our deep understanding of our customers lifestyles and needs. As a result we have recently made some improvements to ensure we cover many of the new risks emerging from the Covid-19 pandemic.
More customers are working from home, have other family members living with them, are changing the way they commute, improving their homes, changing travel plans, ordering more online or becoming more aware of the increased threat from hackers online.
Our updated policy wording includes a number of enhancements to cover, offering your clients even more protection for their homes and contents to help protect their evolving lifestyle.Find out more
The proportion of businesses targeted by cyber criminals in the past year increased from 38% to 43%, according to the Hiscox Cyber Readiness report 2021, with over a quarter of those targeted (28%) experiencing five attacks or more. Those attacks are pushing many firms to the brink, with one in six businesses attacked (17%) saying the financial impact materially threatened the company’s future.
Encouragingly, the report shows firms are responding to the cyber challenge: mean spending per business on cyber security has more than doubled in the last two years.
Now in its fifth year, the Hiscox Cyber Readiness Report surveyed more than 6,000 organisations in the UK, Europe and the USA.Find out more
