Security and Privacy Liability Coverage
Cyber liability insurance with security and privacy liability coverage provides protection for third party claims alleging liability resulting from a security and privacy wrongful act. This includes the failure to safeguard electronic or non-electronic confidential information, or the failure to prevent virus attacks, denial of service attacks or the transmission of malicious code from your computer system to the computer system of a third party.
Consider this scenario:
A restaurant manager stores employee records, including names, dates of birth, and social security numbers on a flash drive to review payroll records — and does not take precautions to encrypt or otherwise protect the stored data. The manager’s laptop and flash drive containing the sensitive data are stolen from his car. After being notified of the breach, several employees file lawsuits against the restaurant and the manager for failing to safeguard their personal information. Cyber Liability insurance would pay for the defense costs and settlements incurred in the lawsuits.
At a time when technology and the risks associated with it affect every person and business, Society Insurance provides leading-edge Cyber Liability insurance with comprehensive data security and privacy coverage.
To learn more about this important coverage and other small details that make a big difference, contact your local Society Insurance agent.
