Pavey Group’s ‘Donate & Do Good Day’ for Children’s Hospice South West (CHSW) was a resounding success.

We are all more reliant on technology. This increase in reliance creates new risks and potential liabilities for businesses which traditional insurance policies are insufficient to provide cover for.
Insurance that protects you in the event of a cyber-attack may seem like something only a large corporate organisation would require. However, cyber criminals are non-discriminative, using malicious codes across the internet to search for vulnerabilities, with the potential to attack business of any size, anywhere in the world.
