5 things to know about insurance and the holiday season

Santa and insurance
1. Property is at its most vulnerable over the holidays. Make sure you double-check your security, potential fire causes and storm protection before any planned closures. 2.

Regularly ensure your website and other IT systems are up and running and free from any cyber threats, especially if you make sales online.
