Beazley Breach Response (BBR) provides breach response services for up to 5 million persons along with coverage for payment card industry costs, regulatory defense and penalties, and first party and crime coverage.

Beazley’s policy form is streamlined and comprehensive to cover organizations seamlessly in the event of a cyber breach. The BBR policy includes:

  • -First party coverage for cyber extortion;
  • -Data recovery costs;
  • -Business interruption resulting from security breaches and system failures;
  • -Contingent business interruption from incidents occurring at the policyholder’s vendors and suppliers; and
  • -eCrime coverage


BBR offers more coverage per dollar of premium, through multiple towers of coverage that ensures the breach response costs covered under the policy do not erode third party limits.

Beazley recognizes that preparing for and preventing breaches have become inseparable from insuring a cyber loss. Beazley offers a full suite of pre-breach breach and risk management services through Beazley’s in-house BBR Services team. In the event of a cyberbreach, BBR policyholders will work directly with BBR Services and Beazley’s claim team to resolve the incident.

Beazley’s 360° approach to cyber risk makes BBR, quite simply, the world’s best designed cyber insurance solution.
