Cyber threats can have serious consequences.

Risks range from loss of information on a single laptop to the threats posed by cloud computing. Businesses may also face issues regarding denial of service or defacement and disruption to their web presence.

Data leaks and data losses can lead to regulatory fines and PR nightmares. Cyber attacks could lead to shut-down servers, loss of confidence or loss of profits.

AIG has developed ‘CyberEdge’ – an innovative protection package designed to counter some of the potentially far-reaching consequences of data leaks and breaches.
