Free tips every business should know about Cyber Security:
- If you are using a third party IT company, make sure they have Professional Liability (E&O) coverage. Require a certificate of insurance with your business as a certificate holder.
- If you currently have an inexpensive “throw in” endorsement within your business insurance package, chances are the coverage is extremely limited and you are vulnerable.
- Purchase this coverage with a carrier that specializes in this risk management and keep it separate from the rest of your package. These claims tend to be private and sensitive.
- If you currently have a cyber security policy, review it and confirm with your agent if it includes or excludes the coverage outlined on this website.
How do I get a proposal?
We have made this process easy because most insurance agents and consumers do not have a full understanding of the various nuances of IT risk management. Below are two questionnaire forms in PDF format to fill out. One form is for the business requesting the coverage and the other is for the IT specialist or IT company used for that business. BOTH questionnaires need to be completed and from those answers you will be provided a proposal that complies with your risk exposures to bind your coverage.
Simple as that! The process to reach a final, firm and ready to bind comprehensive proposal takes 12-15 business days once we have completed questionnaire(s) back.
Applications in PDF format:
(BOTH questionnaires needs to be filled out to bind coverage)
