IT Liability Insurance

The information and technology industry is complex and developing at an increasing rate. As more businesses depend on online systems for core business operations, IT professionals face a range of potential liabilities from clients and third parties that can have crippling financial and reputational consequences should something go wrong.

IT Liability Insurance protects you and your business against legal liability occurring due to the failure of your IT products, services or advice. This type of policy combines professional indemnity, public liability and product liability into one insurance solution.

What does this Insurance cover?

  • Protection if an IT product or service you provided fails
  • Protection in the event that someone hacks into your IT systems or software and destroys or steals information
  • Cover in the event that something goes wrong based on advice you’ve provided on an IT service or product

Should I consider an IT Liability policy over separate Indemnity and Liability policies?

Due to the nature of IT, where you’re providing both a service and product simultaneously, it’s sometimes unclear where a claim should fall. The uncertainty is whether it should be placed under a product or public liability policy (third party claims for property damage or personal injury) or a professional indemnity policy (third party claims for financial loss).

This means that your claims could slip through the cracks between the two policies, particularly when they are placed with separate insurers. It’s best to get cover under the one IT Insurance policy, which will include all of the above.
