CyCon

CyCon, a tailored cyberinsurance solution for the construction industry.

CyCon covers the unique cyber risks construction clients face every day.

  • Cyber risk exposure is a growing concern for the construction sector as the industry migrates to “smart” systems that automate project design, safety management and project delivery.
  • A growing reliance on digital communications to connect with partners, suppliers and subcontractors can also increase exposure to cyber risk.

The results of the Willis Towers Watson Construction Risk Index showed that risks related to digitalization and new technologies are top of mind among global construction executives, with four of the top 10 risks falling into this category.

The increased risk of cyberattacks and data privacy breaches ranked particularly high as a strategic concern, highlighting that cyber loss prevention and mitigation has become mission-critical for construction companies.

It is more important than ever for the construction industry to have a risk transfer strategy in place. Cyber risk can never be fully avoided, and a claim or loss stemming from a cyber event can cause significant financial damage, contingent bodily injury or physical damage and long-term reputational harm.

Our cyber proposition is unique to the construction industry.

CyCon (currently only available in the U.S.), a response to this dynamic risk environment, surpasses off-the-shelf cyber coverage to relieve a construction client’s key concerns.
