Cyber Threats in the Trucking Industry

Cyber Insurance in the Trucking Industry

Motor carriers may not seem like a high-priority for hackers, but the reality is that the transportation industry is one of the most frequent targets for cyber attacks.

Customer data, supply chain logistics, data lists and product data can be extremely valuable. Additionally, motor carriers and individual drivers can be put at greater risk because of outdated data systems, unsecured vehicles, location-based tracking systems and more.

If any of your business devices or vehicles are compromised, you could face ransomware attacks, social engineering schemes or even physical damage if a vehicle has self-driving technology.

One of the best ways for businesses to protect themselves against cyber exposures is with proper insurance. However, cyber liability insurance policies do not offer “one-size-fits-all” protection, and businesses need to keep some considerations in mind if they are to secure the right coverage.
