Cyber security risk and information protection can be challenging for companies of all sizes. Hackers are not the only threat — today’s businesses rely on the internet for services such as online marketing, administrative functions, inventory management, credit card processing, and distribution controls. Any intrusion that disrupts delivery of these services can lead to brand and reputation damage, regulatory scrutiny, stakeholder dissatisfaction, and financial losses.
DIRECTORS AND OFFICERS
Company directors and officers (D&O) cannot reduce the complexity of the business, legal, and regulatory environment. What they can do, however, is take steps to protect their own personal assets — through a combination of strong corporate governance, broad corporate indemnification, and a risk transfer program that includes a high-quality directors and officers liability insurance program.
EMPLOYMENT PRACTICES LIABILITY
Today's business climate has left companies open to many forms of employment risks, including sexual harassment, wrongful termination, and discrimination lawsuits, commanding ever-higher damage awards. Employment practices liability risks can result not only in dire financial consequences, but also in irreparable damage to an organization’s reputation.
ERRORS AND OMISSIONS
One of the most overlooked, but potentially damaging, liability exposures in business today is errors and omissions (E&O). An error and omissions by definition is an actual or alleged act, error or omission, misstatement, misleading statement, or breach of fiduciary duty or other duty committed when providing or failing to provide professional services.
You’re likely to be an excellent candidate for errors and omissions insurance if you provide a service, especially in technology, for a fee; provide installation, integration, support, maintenance, or related services; manufacture, distribute, or sell computer software, hardware, telecommunications products, and/or components; develop, publish, broadcast, or distribute content (whether or not you charge for it).
