Anno Distillers Silver Medal
Anno Distillers are delighted to announce that our high strength gin, 602, has been awarded a silver medal at the 17th San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Anno 602 was judged in the gin category, going up against many different styles of gin such as London Dry and Old Tom. This is the second award for 602 which also won the Specialist Drinks category at the 2016 Taste of Kent Awards. 602 now joins our Kent Dry Gin, which won gold at the 2015 San Francisco World Spirit Competition, as an internationally recognised, multi-award winning product.

Portcullis Insurance
Cyber and data risks insurance protects your business should it suffer a data breach or an attack by a malicious hacker, impacting your computer and industrial control systems.
The Hiscox Cyber Readiness Report 2017 states that more than 57% of UK businesses have been attacked in the last year, with SME firms hit hardest; the average estimated cost to the business is £25,736; and only 36% of UK businesses, despite the very real threat, have Cyber Insurance.
If your business:

  • Handles sensitive customer data (names, addresses, bank details, merchant payment services etc.)
  • Are reliant on computers and industrial control systems to trade
  • Have a website

You will need Cyber and data risks protection.
Typically, and there are many variations in insurance cover provided and of course exclusions, you can be covered for:

  • Breach Costs – unauthorised access; use or disclosure of personal data
  • Cyber Business Interruption – loss of income and increased costs of working
  • Hacker Damage – corruption, misuse or theft of programs
  • Cyber Extortion – third party ransom demands
  • Privacy Protection – claim made against the business for release of personal information or data
  • Media Liability – alteration of email and website content that results in a claim made against the business

Portcullis are offering a complimentary meeting to Marden businesses and manufacturers to describe the different types of Cyber attacks, typical impacts, and the insurance solutions currently available.
Contact Portcullis Insurance mentioning Marden Business Forum.
