What is Information Technology Insurance?

Information Technology Insurance (IT Liability Insurance) is a combined professional indemnity and public and product liability insurance cover. IT Liability Insurance provides protection for IT professionals and product suppliers for legal costs and claims for damages to third parties arising out of the delivery of the advice, services and products.

As a combined professional indemnity and public and product liability insurance cover, Information Technology Insurance can cater for those providing professional advisory services only, or advisory, supply of product including modification and/or installation services.

Why Do I Need Information Technology Insurance?

Today, businesses are highly dependent on their IT consultants and products to conduct business. In the event of an IT failure, businesses are often unable to operate and therefore may suffer a loss. Invariably they will seek to recover any losses from their IT consultant or supplier.

Given the potential for disputes over whether the claim involves a professional service, the provision of a product or a combination of both, a correctly structured Information Technology Insurance scheme provides the necessary protection.
