Choosing the right carrier for network security and privacy liability

Choosing the right carrier for network security and privacy liability


As targeted network attacks continue to rise and governmental agencies increasingly regulate the privacy and data security environment, an increasing number of organizations are transferring their risk to insurance products.

In many cases, organizations find they have little choice. It has become common for written contracts to require service providers to obtain coverage for network security and privacy liability, in addition to coverage for professional and/or technology errors & omissions.

In response to this trend, more than thirty carriers today offer network and privacy insurance products. This number compares with only five carriers ten years ago.

Of course, quantity does not guarantee quality. Your trusted insurance broker will chose from these carriers to determine which ones offer the best product for your organization’s needs.

At KMRD Partners, we work closely with our carriers to design insurance solutions with the right coverages for our insureds. For each insured, we follow this four-point process:

  1. Assess your operational risk.
  2. Invest time and resources to visit and inspect operations and gain a first-hand perspective.
  3. Identify & address areas of weakness that could lead to a loss. Before transferring risk to an insurance product, we seek to eliminate the risk.
  4. Review the insurance program to determine whether the appropriate risks are transferred and make sure the best possible value is achieved.
