Your job is to keep your customer's accounts and systems in good working order. More companies than ever are looking for ways to keep their clients and customers safe, but security risks continue to grow. Even large retailers have had customers’ credit card numbers stolen, and health insurance companies have experienced breaches of patient data. How does this impact your business as an IT security provider or IT company? It's important to look at all risks and to keep the right business insurance in place to protect it.
Protecting Your Business
The first risk is the increasingly risky environment. Your company can be put at risk financially if your data is exposed to hackers. In this industry, this could leave some of your clients' information exposed. It's important that you have ample security in place, of course, to minimize this threat. However, there is no surefire way to protect your customers' data. For that reason, you need to have sufficient data theft liability insurance in place. This covers you for exposure risks.
Protecting Your Customers and Their Customers
Next, look beyond the environment to your company directly. As an IT company, you provide a service to your customers and clients. If security of their information and data is a component of the service you offer and a breach occurs, it is quite possible that your company could be held at fault in these situations as well. You need to have the right level and amount of coverage in place to minimize threats when your services fail. Professional liability coverage that extends to the levels necessary is essential in this matter.
Business insurance can be overwhelming, but you do have options to protect your company. You worked hard to build your IT company and you don't want to jeopardize it due to hackers or other thieves. Strive to have ample liability coverage in place, making sure that it extends to cover all areas and types of risks your business faces. It could make the difference in allowing your IT company to stay in business if such an event occurs.
