Many IT professoinals rendering services to corporate clients require professional liability, cyber liability and general liability insurance
Technology services insurance covers a broad range of professions.
We help insure many Technology Services professionals and businesses including (but not limited to):
Professional Liability Insurance (aka E&O insurance) – Technology Services
Often referred to as “Technology E&O,” Professional Liability insurance is extremely important for businesses and individuals in the technology sector. It is one of the most rapidly evolving business insurance products available and is often required by customer contracts.
Basic technology E&O provides protection in the event that your advice or services are alleged to be negligent, faulty or inaccurate and causes financial harm to your customer or other third party. Coverage includes non-performance of your software or hardware.
Most policies include protection for Media Liability as well. Media Liability shields against claims related to copyright and trademark violation, something that is critical for software and hardware developers. Additionally, the Medial Liability component of coverage can protect against personal injury claims related to your service or products (libel, slander, defamation, etc.).
Professional Liability insurance (Technology E&O) may also include Cyber Liability coverage. Cyber Liability protects against your liability and notification obligations related to loss of Personally Identifiable Information (PII) such as credit card numbers or social security numbers. It also may protect your interests if there is a network security breach such as unauthorized access or hacking.
General Liability – Technology Services
General Liability is the most basic business insurance products and is recommended for many types of businesses. It can be relatively inexpensive and is often required by contract from customers, landlords and suppliers.
General Liability protects against accidents related to bodily injury and property damage of outside parties. It applies to accidents inside or outside of your place of work but it typically does not cover bodily injury or property damage that is a result of your software or hardware products. Causing someone to trip, dropping a customer’s property and spilling hot coffee are all examples of basic General Liability claims.
General Liability can also cover advertising injury and personal injury claims related to the promotion and day-to-day operation of your business (but not related to your technology products or services).
Business Owner’s Policy (BOP) – Technology Services
If you want to cover your business equipment and property, a Business Owner’s Policy (BOP) is the best way to go. A BOP is a convenient way to protect against several of the more common internal and external risks that could impact your technology business.
A BOP offers General Liability protection as outlined above, and it also provides the option to include coverage for your business property, business interruption, non-owned business auto liability, employee dishonesty, and more.
A BOP is a simple and affordable way to protect your physical assets, your virtual assets, and some of your common liability exposures.
