To be blunt, your IT guy MUST carry cyber liability coverage. If he doesn’t, he is exposing your businesses to potentially catastrophic cyber threats.

With cyber liability coverage, sophisticated computer systems get the following protections:

  • Privacy Liability Protects personal health and identity information.
  • Privacy Breach Notification Covers costs incurred when notifying those who’s security has been breached.
  • Forensic Expense Protection Pays for the necessary security expert to analyze a data breach.
  • Crisis Management Coverage Takes care of expenses related to hiring a Public Relations expert.
  • Regulatory Defense/Penalties Protection Covers any expenses related to claims and penalties incurred due to violation of Privacy Law.

Your IT professional is not the only one who should have this coverage…you should as well. As a business owner, you must protect yourself from everyday mishaps such as employee errors, lost or stolen unencrypted laptops, mobile devices and the occasional employee that goes astray.
