Data Breach–More Common Than You Think

Did you know that many data breach cases are not even realized for months and in some circumstances years? Those who rely on you to protect their business interests also trust you to protect their personal information. When sensitive data is exposed, your reputation is on the line as a company.

Offered as an optional coverage either as part of the Business Owner's Policy, the General Liability policy, our Data Privacy -- Network Security Liability Insurance, or as a separate Cyber Choice 2.09, our data breach coverage provides you with access to professionals who can help you comply with regulatory requirements, provide guidance on how to help prevent a data breach and handle a breach crisis if one occurs.

Response expense coverage can help to quickly restore confidence in your business or practice through notification to impacted individuals and can help pay for good faith advertising expenses, for example. In most states, coverage is also available for defense and liability expenses in the event you're sued because of a breach. It is important to know that we can provide peace of mind through many of The Hartford's products that we offer.

Our coverage can help absorb some of the costs associated with a breach including notification, public relations, legal and liability expenses. The carriers that we represent can provide access to professional assistance when a breach crisis occurs — helping you comply with applicable laws and regulations to avoid civil litigation and other penalties. Please take a moment to review this quick video to see how data breach coverage can help your company.
