Providing Cyber Liability Insurance in Huntersville and Throughout North Carolina

Insurance coverage for privacy, data breach, and the more traditional risks of cyber liability has been growning. Over the past five years, this niche has progressed from a specialty product into a coverage that is readily quoted and obtained.

Data Breaches: Caused by Oversight

A data breach is classified as one of two occurences. The first is the unintentional release of sensitive information into an unsecure environment. The second involves the intentional theft of that information by an unauthorized individual. Data breaches may involve more than what one might originally expect. Release of financial information such as credit card or financial account details, personal health information (PHI), personally identifiable information (PII), trade secrets or intellectual property all count as a data breach. The party responsible for protecting privileged information may be subject to criminal and/or civil penalties for failure to do so.

Why is Cyber Liability Insurance Necessary?

Designing a web site is an exciting prospect. The exposures and risks that come with it aren’t. Private companies that function in the internet marketplace face liability exposures that are , changing, and intricate.Traditional liability policies do not address data exposures and the risks involved with running an internet business or managing e-commerce.

 

When a company operates in today's high tech world, cyber liability & data breach protection is a necessity. For example, a typical computer network will more than likely provide internal and external email. Companies will probably have web sites providing information about your company, its products and services, and how customers can obtain said products.

 

Cyber liability insurance addresses the first and third-party risks associated with the above types of e-commerce, the internet, and informational assets. Cyber liability insurance offers protection of internet communication's inherent risk exposures. These risks include infringement of intellectual property, virus transmissions, or any other serious trouble that may be passed from first to third parties via the web.

 

The ease of worldwide communication brought by the internet is accompanied by a developiong list of liability exposures. For example, by distributing information to the public online, commercial businesses are now subjecting themselves to some of the same exposures experienced by literary pulishers. Copyright infringement, defamation, invasion of privacy, and other traditional publishing exposures have become more prevalent in the digital world we all use for shopping, communicating, and even simple driving directions. Many businessowners develop websites and are unaware of the legal responsibilities that come with maintaining a web presence, especially in the areas of user privacy and domain name infringement.

Testimonials

I've had Erie for a fair amount of time; however, I don't stay because of their policy offerings or pricing, I much like my parents whom have been with Erie for 25 or 30 years, stay because people like you are always ready to jump in and get things done. No matter the outcome, I very much appreciate your continuous effort.

April , Thank you so much for your help these past two weeks. Getting the Mustangs onto a collector car type of policy like Hagerty offers has been on my to-do list for a number of years. Fortunately I haven't had to make a claim in that time...but unfortunately I've been missing out on the savings. Nevertheless as soon as I mentioned the idea to you and you told me you underwrite for Hagerty I was very interested in pursuing it. You made the transition seamless and provided significant savings while improving the coverage on my beloved Mustangs. I very much appreciate your assistance!!
Troy R.
Quick note to say thanks for your assistance on dealing with my recent car repair – the adjuster – all that. You were very helpful, responsive and couldn't have done it without you. Thanks so much!
