CyberFirst® - a powerful, modular approach to offering cyber insurance solutions to technology companies

Find an Agent

An independent insurance agent can help you make the choices that are right for you.

Cyber threats are real, growing in both number and sophistication.  There is an increased potential for errors and omissions, copyright or trademark infringement, and breaches of private information.

Damages from these events can be devastating to any technology company’s bottom line. 

Technology businesses today are driven by data. With that comes the profound responsibility to protect customers’ private information, to prevent the inadvertent transmission of computer viruses and to ensure that authorized users are able to securely access your website or computer network. The theft or misuse of private or confidential customer information occurs daily.

Today businesses are exposed to an increasing number of cyber-driven disruptive scenarios, driven by three growing trends:

1. There is a growing interdependency of industries, businesses and processes 
2. There is a growing inter-connectedness of things other than computers and mobile devices
3. Wireless connections are available almost everywhere

Tech companies handle huge amounts of data. That means huge risks and consequences if it gets into the wrong hands. See how Travelers helps navigate the risks of innovation.

Cyber threats continue to grow and represent a serious challenge that all technology companies face

Just as technology companies would not go without an insurance policy to protect themselves from a fire, they shouldn't go without protecting themselves from cyber risks. CyberFirst offers a flexible approach to meet many of the specialty insurance needs of today's innovative technology companies including:

  • Technology errors and omissions liability

In addition to financial loss, a breach can halt a business' operations, create legal issues and damage customer confidence. Damages from these events can be devastating to your business' bottom line or to the reputation you've worked so hard to build.
