Back on the Road: The Coach Operator's 'Renaissance' Guide to Insurance and Driving in 2021

We may tire of hearing it, but March 2020 marked the start of an “unprecedented time” for both the UK and coach sector. Over the past 12 months, hundreds of operators have ceased trading with only 15% eligible for government support. However, some fleets have weathered the storm through hibernation and may now be buoyed up by news of the Covid-19 vaccine programme’s roll out speed and the potential return of school runs in March. If you are still operating in the sector, you need to get your house in order, in terms of your passenger fleet insurance, your maintenance, your driver controls and also, if you tour abroad, what is required of you since Brexit. This guide should help you take the right action to get you back on the road, as we look forward to the future together and embrace the ‘new era’ for the coach sector.



James & The Giant Breach: Your Guide to Cybersecurity

In the year, up to and including July 2020, there have been more than 19 billion data breaches, with key sectors attacked in July being healthcare and health science, education, tech and media. June saw Avon’s UK website attacked and taken offline. In May, EasyJet had 9m records breached. But it’s not just the big boys. 88% of UK businesses have experienced breaches in the last 12 months. And still the cyber insurance message does not seem to be getting through.

We are on a quest to do something about this. We have commissioned our own research, to assess how lockdown may have affected cybersecurity but to also find out how the average Charlie, in or outside of his chocolate factory, knows about cybercrime and how it ticks. 

Download our Cybersecurity Guide to discover how various tales of the unexpected could catch you out and make you the central character in a ‘James (or Jane) and the Giant Security Breach’ tale of woe.
