Existing insurance policies do not account for web-based
and other technology related liabilities. McAfee Security won't ensure
you against a massive claim in case of a breach.
The cost of a breach is higher than you think.
A 2012 data breach insurance claims study done by Net
Diligence found that the average cost of legal defense for a data
breach was $582,000, and the average cost of a settlement was more than
What could possibly go wrong?
A few things ... like virus attacks, hacks, physical
damage or interruption to servers, rogue laptops, natural disasters and
other systems failures.
Know the ways you're at risk.
New economy, new exposures. The risks differ from business
to business but include things like data theft, intellectual property
liability claims, employee misconduct and many other things.
Know how to mitigate your risk.
You need a data security policy, data encryption and
employee training - but you also need to transfer liability to a
third-party underwriter. That means an insurance policy crafted to
cover all your specific cyber liabilities.
And, just to lighten things up a bit:

Exactly How Many Spudnuts Does Tadough’s Make a Day? Feat: Tadough's Kitchen Managers Scott and Kevin Pekin, IL - By now you’ve seen the re-branding of our beloved Pekin classic: the spudnut. Taking place last March, the rebranding to “Tadough’s” sparked some big questions about Central Illinois’ favorite potato flour-based donut and the future of its legendary legacy. Here’s when Jacqueline and Rick enter the spudnut story. Last March Jacqueline saw opportunity when she heard the business was up for sale. An original Pekinite, Jacqueline and her father Rick are committed to maintaining the Pekin icon and want to bring a long-standing household name into the next generation of business development. “We’ve more than doubled our production of donuts made daily,” says Jacqueline . While the business has historically been known to sell out as early as 6:00 and 7:00 a.m., Jacqueline and Rick aim to keep doors open until 10:00 a.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Rick,
Ever Dream of Opening a Bar? A #PekinRestaurantWeek Special Feature Pekin, IL- Chris, Eric, and Ryan didn’t. But a plot twist to a dream dating back over 14 years ago helped a vision become a reality in 2021: The Bunker Indoor Golf Lounge. What is an “indoor golf lounge” exactly? The Bunker hosts indoor, large-scale golf simulators: a big city offering in our Midwestern, small town of Pekin. Oh, and there’s a full-service bar to boot. “We’re really lucky to have great golf courses in Pekin, and now we can enjoy indoor golf too,” says part-owner Eric. Eric lays out the history of the idea and explains he has wanted to open a golf simulator hang-out spot for over a decade, but the technology- and price- just wasn’t there yet. Eric continues, “I toured a lot of simulators in the Chicago area and then was waiting for the right opportunity.” Eric and business partner Chris checked out many property locations over the years, including the old dance and tumbling building on
The Pekin Women's Leadership Network empowers women to become effective leaders by providing essential skills and strategies for professional and personal growth. A variety of carefully tailored programs are designed to support women in all phases of their careers. Why is this program needed? Although women have made great strides in achieving equality, a leadership gap continues. In 2013, 20 women serve in the Senate, and only 78 women serve in the House of Representative. Overall, women hold 98, or 18.3% of the 525 seats in the 113th U.S congress. Locally, the statistics are even worse, with only 1 woman serving on the Pekin City Council. The business world does not fare much better, with only 22 women CEO's in the Fortune 500. Our focus is on helping young women develop the skills and abilities necessary to succeed and flourish in their chosen career paths. Sessions scheduled for the 2013-2014 series include: November 1st - Women in Politics - Rep. Cheri Busto
