AmTrust Cyber Liability Insurance

Cyber liability insurance is still a relatively new coverage, gaining increased visibility in the past decade since it was introduced. Data breaches have become a fact of life, and AmTrust appointed agents have advanced tools at their disposal to help policyholders expand insurance coverage and protect their businesses from the fallout of cyber threats.

As an appointed agent with AmTrust, you can easily add cyber liability insurance to a policyholder’s existing coverage, such as BOP or workers’ compensation policies. With limit options available as low as $50,000, you will be able to place this important coverage for even your small business commercial customer.

AmTrust North America and its appointed agents offer three “towers” of insurance coverage for cyber liability policyholders:

  • Policy Aggregate Limit of Liability
  • Privacy Breach Response Services including notification services, call center services, credit monitoring, computer experts, legal services and public relations

Appointed agents have access to a risk management website for all AmTrust cyber liability insurance policies at no additional charge, which provides education and loss control content to prepare your customer and minimize the impact on your customer in the event of a breach.

Evolution of Cyber Liability

Cyber threats have evolved drastically over the past two decades. Cyber liability insurance is rooted in the errors and omissions insurance policies tech companies purchased 20 years ago. These policies covered events such as software crashing another company’s network or unauthorized access to client systems. Today, cyber liability insurance has expanded to cover network security issues that expose privacy concerns resulting from data breaches. Common components of cyber liability insurance include:

  • First Party Coverage that responds immediately after a suspected incident. Coverage includes forensics, legal analysis, notification and credit monitoring as well as public relations.
  • Third Party Coverage that provides a defense in the event of litigation against your customer.
