• Could your business easily afford to send a notice to all customers that their data may have been affected?
  • How about providing access to credit monitoring and identity restoration services?
  • These steps alone can be extremely costly. And in most states, they're required.
  • State Auto's data breach coverage includes the steps you'll need to take after a potential breach:
    • Notify customers.
    • Hire professionals to determine the extent of the breach.
    • Provide monitoring and restoration services to customers.
    • Protect your own identity - you could be a victim, too.
