Directors and officers liability focuses on the liability a director, officer, member, president or similar “manager” has for the development and protection of a company’s direction, assets, employee information and day-to-day management. It is the responsibility of these leaders to act with unselfish loyalty to their corporation, and to make decisions that are in its best interest and the best interest of its shareholders – with no interest in personal gain. Owners, directors, officers and members alike face risking their personal assets due to claims arising from outside investors, employees, shareholders or third parties based on allegations of financial loss or other forms of injury in management of the company. Whether Public, Private or Non-profit, all companies have this exposure to loss.

Security & Privacy

Security and privacy breach exposures affect businesses in every sector of the economy. The impact from a security or privacy breach can be costly and cause irreparable damage to a firm’s reputation. Security and privacy liability covers an insured for failure of computer network security, unauthorized system access, failure to protect personal or corporate information, and violations of state and regulatory privacy laws.

Timely response is vital once a breach has occurred. Costs associated with notification can be staggering as notification laws vary from state to state, and an insured must be compliant in each state in which they conduct business. Crisis management covers expenses associated with notification, public relations efforts, credit monitoring and attorney’s fees.

Cyber-extortion involves an attack or threat of an attack against an insured’s network. Cyber-extortion liability provides coverage for expenses incurred in response to a threat, including retaining a negotiator, the costs of forensics, and funds paid to an extortionist.

In today’s world, businesses are exposed to potential claims for copyright and trademark infringement, libel or negligence resulting from content on websites, email newsletters, blogs and social network sites such as Facebook. Media liability addresses these exposures and can be added to further broaden coverage.
