Hack & Virus Attacks on Arts Organisations

Hack & Virus Attacks on Arts Organisations

Protecting Your Organisation:

  1. Use and regularly update anti-virus software and keep your firewall turned on
  2. Use encryption software on laptops to keep your data safe
  3. Remember to remove personal information and valuable data from PCs and other devices if you recycle or resell them
  4. Carry out regular back-ups and test them to make sure they are working effectively
  5. Be careful what you and your employees download
  6. Have a plan! – so that when the worst happens, everyone knows what to do and when
  7. Cyber Liability Insurance: this is rapidly becoming an insurance essential in the creative sector.  La Playa’s Cyber Portfolio is an affordable policy designed especially for arts organisations. It will protect you from the financial impact of costs arising from hack and virus attacks, leaked information, defamatory statements and copyright infringement.

Conclusion: it’s a jungle out there, with technology and legislation evolving rapidly – make sure you have water-tight insurance in place. To talk through your risks in cyber space, just hit reply.

About La Playa Arts & Entertainment

Specialist & Independent

Specialist & Independent

The arts present a very specific set of risk exposures – and now your digital and online risks can expose you globally. We understand the risks and pressures you face - and we speak your language. We’ll support you with great advice - helping you make good decisions for your organisation.

Our exclusive portfolio policies can help streamline costs, and we’ll always help you stay ahead of the game in managing risk. The show must always go on - insurance isn’t just about processing a claim, it’s about thinking laterally to solve challenges and problems fast.

At La Playa, we’re passionate about the arts and creative industries – many of us are practitioners and active consumers; in fact, La Playa founded the first ever corporate art collective!
