"Technology companies are not the only businesses susceptible to website disruptions, network breaches, lost data or other technological issues," according to Scott Schleicher, XL Insurance's Technology E&O manager. "Companies of all sizes and representing all industries use technology to perform significant aspects of their business. Therefore, they are also at risk of technology failure." XL Eclipse offers a wide range of cyberliabilty coverage under one policy form, including:
Network Security Liability
Media Content Services Liability
Privacy Notification Costs
The coverage can be tailored to address the specific technology risks of a variety of industries, especially service providers such as lawyers, real estate or insurance agents, and medical offices.
XL EclipsePro offers these cyberliabilty coverages but also incorporates technology E&O to address the professional liability needs of technology products and service providers.
"XL Insurance first introduced its technology E&O product in December 2008," explained Mr. Schleicher. "We are constantly looking at ways to improve our products and services and keep pace with our clients' changing risk management needs. These policies offer a complete package that can help both our tech and non-tech clients thoroughly and effectively address their tech risk."
XL Eclipse and XL EclipsePro are underwritten by XL Insurance's Indian Harbor Insurance Company and are available with liability limits up to $10 million. These coverages are administered through XL Insurance's Select Professional unit which provides various miscellaneous professional liability coverages including E&O coverages for lawyers, real estate and insurance agents and other service providers.
