Technology businesses run ahead of the curve. Although forward thinking can lead to success through innovation, it may also expose them to higher levels of risk – like a software glitch that causes their customer to lose important data or missing code that prevents a customer from booking reservations. Nothing can short-circuit a tech company faster than a lawsuit. Worse, what many don’t know is that they can be sued even if they’ve done nothing wrong.

Optional Coverages For Technology Companies
Technology Professional Liability coverage provides protection if a tech company is sued for damages resulting from the services they provide – or the failure of their products and services to perform as intended. It can also help cover the cost of their defense.
Our suite of professional liability products was designed exclusively for tech businesses. This suite offers increasing levels of professional liability protection. No matter the size of the business or the type of protection needed, we have the solution.
Example: A technology service provider fails to reactivate a client’s firewall after making updates to the network. The service provider is sued by the client for a failure to prevent the disclosure of their customers’ personally identifiable information (PII).
Technology Services coverage provides protection for bodily injury or property damage to a third party resulting from a tech company’s professional services. In some cases, personal and advertising injury could also be extended. This is not professional liability protection but an important extension of general liability coverage.
Example: While working on a customer’s server, the technology service provider causes physical property damage to one of the racks.
Data Breach coverage helps pay for expenses associated with the loss or theft of a customer or employee’s PII. It helps pay for first party expenses like notifying impacted parties, crisis management, monitoring services, good faith advertising, legal and forensic services, in addition to third party expenses for defense and liability costs.
Example: While riding the subway, an IT contractor accidentally loses an unencrypted flash drive that contained PII for both customers and fellow employees.
Computers & Media coverage helps protect against the physical loss or damage to hardware, software and data along with damage caused by computer viruses. It also helps cover lost business income due to a suspension of operations caused by loss or damage to computers, software or data.
Example: An IT company’s network suffers a virus attack that corrupts their data. The data has to be researched, replaced and restored.
Employee Dishonesty coverage provides coverage for loss of money, securities and other covered property resulting from dishonest or fraudulent acts of a business’ employees, including while the employee is at a client’s location. This is important coverage for any IT firm that sends employees to a client’s premises for work.
Example: An employee of an IT staffing company steals money out of the petty cash drawer at a client’s office.
