Coverage for Your Agency

We realize that protecting the future of your agency is a major priority. You trust us to represent your interests at the highest political level and as your association we also want to provide you with the security of knowing you are getting the best overall E&O value in the marketplace—not just a policy, but a comprehensive program.  We have a market for every type of agency (individual, start-up, small, large).

 

What would you do if your agency had a data breach?
The vast majority of businesses that suffer a data breach fail to recover because they did not have a plan in place to deal with a possible breach.  Responding to a breach is a complicated process that requires the assistance of many different professionals.  Failure to notify the affected individuals without unreasonable delay could cost your agency up to $1,500,000 in fines from government agencies.  Add this to the $200,000 average cost to comply with notification laws, the legal liability and the reputational harm caused by the breach and you can quickly see how this exposure can be devastating to your agency.
