For Your Clients
Every business collects personal identifiable information (PII) like email addresses, phone numbers, credit card information and more—and all of it creates a cyber liability exposure.
Imagine your commercial client loses a laptop or business smartphone, or one of its customers calls to say their credit card was improperly used after visiting your client's establishment. Who does that small business turn to now?

Think your small commercial clients don’t need cyber coverage? Think again.
Given the potential payoff of hacking a company compared to an individual, it makes sense for personal lines clients to disregard cyber liability insurance—until you consider the high net-worth market.
In addition to making more attractive targets for cybercriminals, high net-worth individuals have another risk factor that makes them particularly vulnerable to attack: They like their tech toys.
The insurance industry has been slow to respond to cyber exposures in personal lines. But until it does, individuals don’t have to sit around waiting to become victims—they can take matters into their own hands.
