Cyber Liability Insurance

At one time, it was thought that large companies with large amounts of data were the only ones who needed Cyber Liability insurance, but in recent years many small business owners have realized how critical the Cyber Liability coverage is to their portfolio.

Cyber Liability insurance is designed to cover liability and property losses that may result from a business engaging in numerous electronic activities, such as e-commerce or data-collection within its internal electronic network. Cyber and Privacy policies cover a business' liability for a data breach in which a company's client base and their personal information, such as social security or credit card numbers, are exposed or stolen. Fulshear Insurance® represents many different carriers to ensure proper protection of your business with this valuable coverage. It is important to have data breach coverage in place if your business is victimized by a cyber-attack as quick action is critical to help restore the public's confidence.

To mitigate the risk of civil litigation and other penalties when a data loss or theft occurs, a cyber liability or data breach insurance policy can provide access to professional assistance to help businesses comply with applicable laws and regulations.

Businesses must respond swiftly to minimize the impact of a data security incident on their customers, employees and their business. Their reputation is at risk, and there are laws and regulatory requirements that must be addressed immediately, or companies that experience a breach could face steep penalties and even lawsuits.

Data breach insurance and cyber liability insurance help cover the costs of a data security breach such as identity protection solutions, public relations, legal fees, liability and more depending on the level of coverage you choose. Limits of cyber liability insurance policies are available up to $20M for select risks.  Both First and Third Party coverages are available.  Excess cyber liability may also be available for clients who require higher limits. 

Cyber Liability First Party Coverage may include the following:

  • Loss of Digital Assets, which is the loss resulting from damage to or corruption of the insured's electronic data and computer programs.
