Cyber Insurance from ProWriters

Get Access to the Top Cyber Insurance

Are your clients vulnerable to a breach?

Cyber Insurance is a very complex, high-risk type of coverage. The legal and technological aspects of privacy and data breach are constantly evolving. Without this coverage, your clients may be forced to pay for the damage out of pocket—which could be millions!

Many business owners aren’t familiar with the risks associated with cyber threats or what damages this type of insurance covers. Cyber Insurance has drastically evolved to provide comprehensive protection and these insurance coverages can protect your clients from the devastating consequences of cyber crime.

What Companies Can ProWriters Cover?

We offer Cyber and Privacy Insurance coverage for companies of all sizes

For large, billion-dollar companies and up, we can obtain custom Cyber Insurance terms. These companies benefit from our long-standing partnership with the top 30+ cyber markets and can also take advantage of our customized coverage to address their specific needs.

For small businesses to middle-market companies, we offer broad liability coverage from multiple top markets. This keeps your clients’ cyber security insurance costs low as they only pay for the coverages they need, relative to their risk.

First-Party Coverage for Costs Associated with a Breach

What does Cyber Insurance cover? These policies cover a wide range of first-party exposures for business owners:

  • IT Forensic Costs
    The costs to determine what information may have been breached or how unauthorized access to sensitive data occurred. This is an important (and often costly) endeavor.
  • Notification Costs
    The costs to notify individuals, businesses, regulators and to run a call center related to the notification.
  • Credit Protection Costs
    These are the costs to provide credit monitoring services to the affected parties who may suffer a loss to their credit scores.
  • Crisis Management Costs
    This covers media liability costs, including the cost to hire a public relations firm. How your clients publicly respond to a breach within the first several hours is crucial.
  • Crime and Social Engineering
    This coverage applies when a stolen username and password are used to direct funds out of your account (involuntary parting of funds coverage). This “voluntary parting of funds” is often perpetrated via a phishing campaign.
Third-Party Liability Related to a Breach

This covers costs related to a breach of Personally Identifiable Information (PII), including:

  • Credit card numbers
  • Social security numbers
  • Bank account information
  • Personal health information
  • Sensitive corporate information

When you have a Cyber Insurance policy, your third party insurance will cover costs related to:

  • Breach of contract
  • Negligent protection of data
  • Network security breaches
  • Transmission of software viruses
  • Denial of service attacks
  • Defense of regulatory actions related to a breach, as well as possible fines and penalties
  • PCI fines and penalties and assessments
Additional Elements a Privacy and Cyber Policy Can Include
  • Multi-Media Coverage
    This may cover:

    • Online advertising
    • Intellectual property
    • Copyright and trademark infringement
    • Libel or defamation claims
  • Cyber Extortion
    With ransomware, hackers may destroy, damage, or otherwise incapacitate your network or data if you don’t meet their ransom demands. Coverage is available to include ransom payments during extortion.
  • Cyber Business Interruption
    Coverage is available for companies that rely heavily on the internet or their network for their revenue. If you or your client has this exposure, you need to specifically address it with your cyber policy as General Liability policies typically do not cover this. This may also include dependent business interruption (when a third party that you rely on goes down). It may also extend to system failure. This is when a power outage causes your digital computer systems to go offline.
  • Hacker Damage or Digital Asset Damage
    This covers the cost to rebuild your client’s:

    • Website
    • Intranet
    • Network
    • Electronically-held data

    IT is a large investment for most companies—minimal network damage at the wrong time can cripple a business.
