    Data breach combined with crime and professional liability cover

    Innovative package that combines data breach with crime and professional liability cover.

    Financial institutions’ information exposures have many causes and are difficult to control. And even with the best systems, controls, personnel and procedures, no organization is immune to the risk.

    It only takes one small human error, or an office break-in, or a clever hacker to compromise millions of records and create potential havoc.

    Essentially, a data privacy breach is not a question of “if”. The only question is “when?”

    Beazley pioneered the development of data breach related insurance and has helped define the market. We have used our expertise and experience to create an innovative new package that combines data breach with crime and professional liability cover.

    Central to our approach is the understanding that a data breach isn’t always a disaster but mishandling it is.

    The negative publicity resulting from a data breach can lead to massive reputational and brand damage. However an effective response can be complex and challenging. Therefore as well as providing cover for financial liability, our coverage features a range of services designed to mitigate the reputational damage and the risk of legal action being brought against financial institutions, including:

    • Forensic investigation services to assess the cause, gravity and extent of a data incident
    • Breach notification and call center services for third parties, lessening the administrative burden of the breach
    • Legal advice and support to assess the legal ramifications of the breach and the actions required to mitigate them
    • Public relations and crisis management specialists to handle the crisis response plan and communications strategy.

    Our cyber products are available worldwide and are enhanced in a growing number of countries by our unique Beazley Breach Response product. In countries where Beazley Breach Response is not available, cover is available through Beazley Global Breach Solutions.
