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


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
  • Network and information security liability
  • Communications and media liability
  • Expense Reimbursement

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.


SOLUTION: CyberFirst Technology Errors and Omissions Liability Coverage - This coverage is enterprise-wide and specifically tailored for today's high-tech companies. It protects the policyholder's bottom line against damages they must pay because of economic loss that arises out of their products or their work and is caused by an error, omission or negligent act.


SOLUTION: CyberFirst Network & Information Security Liability Coverage - This cutting-edge coverage protects the policyholder against claims for loss caused by the failure to prevent unauthorized access to, or use of, data containing private information of others.

The Network & Information Security Liability coverage also protects the policyholder against claims for loss cause by the failure to prevent the transmission of a computer virus and failure to provide access to authorized users of the policyholder's website or communications network.


SOLUTION: CyberFirst Communications & Media Liability Coverage - This broad coverage protects against infringement of copyright, title, slogan, trademark, trade dress, service mark or service name in the policyholder's covered material. The form also covers unauthorized use of any advertising material, or any slogan or title, of others in the advertising of the business, premises, products, services, work or completed work of others. In addition, plagiarism or unauthorized use of a literary or artistic format, character or performance in the policyholder's covered material is included.


SOLUTION: CyberFirst Expense Reimbursement Coverage - optional coverage provides important first-party protection for your business. Choose from the following:

  • Security Breach Notification and Remediation Expenses
  • Crisis Management Service Expenses
  • Business Interruption and Additional Expenses
  • Extortion Expenses

  • Computer Fraud
  • Funds Transfer Fraud
