Provide peace of mind by offering Cyber Liability insurance.
Cyber liability and data breach insurance provides legal protection and assistance for your business if a data breach occurs. It helps investigate the breach, pay for legal defense expenses and handle regulatory issues—minimizing the impact to your business, reputation and assets.
The ASME Cyber Liability and Data Breach Response Program*
Any business handling customer data will, sooner or later, be confronted with the challenge of a data breach. It’s not a matter of “if” but “when”.
Information exposures are difficult to control and subject to many different types of loss events. Even with the best systems, controls, personnel and procedures in place, no firm is immune: It only takes a small human error, one lost laptop, or a clever hacker to compromise client records and wreak havoc on your organization.
Investigating and responding to an incident can be complex and costly even before legal defense expenses and regulatory fines and penalties begin to accrue. An effective data breach response is a complicated process. It is fast moving and involves a carefully coordinated set of decisions. Forty-eight states have enacted security breach notification legislation. The law varies by state and notification to affected individuals in some states is no later than 45 days.
And the stakes are high. After a breach you’re fighting to protect your reputation. If they don’t think your business can be trusted, the very future of your company may be at risk. A data breach is not a learning opportunity – you have too much to lose to risk mishandling it.

Businesses face increasingly complex information and computer security risks.
