Accountant Cyber Liability Insurance
As more and more skilled hackers target websites that may hold valuable information such as names and contact or financial information, it is becoming increasingly important to arm your firm with Cyber Liability Insurance. This specialized coverage can protect your firm from a wide range of data breaches. It is an important tool to have — no matter the size of your firm — and it can cover more than you think.
What Is Cyber Liability Insurance?
Cyber liability insurance primarily responds to claims involving network security or data privacy arising from the disclosure of non-public corporate or personal information. That information is classified as personally-identifiable information (PII) or protected health information (PHI). Though it is becoming increasingly common for electronic devices to be involved, it is not required, making a briefcase with paper records left in a cab included in the coverage.
What Does Cyber Liability Insurance Cover?
If any of those risks happen to your business, you may lose income, be responsible for the high costs of damages or could even be sued. Cyber liability insurance can protect you from those risks and let you get back to doing business sooner. It protects your business from claims arising from:
- Business interruption
- Network security
- Internet Liability
- Web Content Liability
- Electronic Communications
- Intangible assets
If your company or business is open to cyber liability risks, consider purchasing an additional cyber liability policy. Traditional insurance products such as general liability insurance do not provide coverage against the risks associated with a cyber-attack.
