State-of-the-Art contractual coverage blended with network security loss control and related service agreements may result in coverage for unintentional breach of contracts, fewer and less onerous exclusions for security and privacy breaches and control of defense by the Named Insured. In addition, first-party cyber-extortion, network business interruption and extra expense and damage to data and applications can be integrated with the third-party E&O coverage to insure against internal economic loss.

Buying insurance that fits the risk can only be accomplished through a thorough exposure identification based on the financial impact a product or service failure would have on your end users. Premium savings are the end-result when technology E&O insurance contract are align with a specific risk.
