Business Insurance: Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What happens if I make a mistake (professional negligence)?

    We know that you’re very careful and thorough in your work, but you’re human. If you overlook an important detail that results in your client not receiving the agreed-upon service, your E&O coverage is designed to protect you from serious financial loss.

  2. Does my General Liability policy cover me for cyber attacks?

    There is often some confusion associated with General Liability (GL) coverage for cyber incidents that centers around the “3rd party property damage” coverage provided in GL policies. Unfortunately, in the world of GL insurance, “property” only encompasses tangible property and not your digital assets. Nor do GL policies cover the 1st party costs you might incur to recover from a cyber incident (e.g., the costs to hire computer experts to investigate the cause or restore the damage, the costs to restore data in a ransomware attack, business interruption losses, among numerous other loss possibilities).

    For IT providers and consultants, GL policies do often include an endorsement titled, “Digital Data Protection Endorsement”. Where this endorsement is present, the GL policy will cover the loss of data, but only for situations where 3rd party data is lost due to property damage.

    In summary, General Liability policies do not provide adequate coverage for the cyber and technological risks faced by nearly every company. This is why cyber insurance exists. Cyber policies are designed to provide coverage for the various loss exposures companies face (both 1st party, and liability to 3rd parties) that result from a cyber incident.

  3. Your client says your advice has cost him, what now?

    If a client claims that the professional advice you offered resulted in damages that led to direct economic losses, you could face a lawsuit for the costs associated with those losses. E&O coverage will provide a safeguard in this instance.

  4. What happens when your staff member misses an important detail?

    If you or an employee were to present information that your client feels is faulty or misleading or misrepresenting. Your client could launch suit. Even if there is no merit to the claim. Errors & Omissions policy coverage will respond to legal expenses associated with these claims.

  5. My laptop was stolen or lost, am I covered?

    If a consultant’s laptop is stolen from their vehicle, there could be sensitive material lost or your client’s data could be compromised. If due to this breach of information their client suffers harm, the consulting firm could be sued. Protect this with General Liability coverage.
