E-Business Insurance vs. Traditional Insurance

By March 4, 2016March 25th, 2021Uncategorized

Over the last several years we have seen many changes in business and technology for business. One of the biggest changes is what we have seen in the Internet. A decade ago this was the home of only large firms, but now virtually every firm uses the Internet for many facets of their business.

Here is a short list of claim exposures for each business to consider:

  1. Utilize e-mail
  2. Storing Customer data on websites
  3. E-Businesses
  4. Click & mortar business
  5. Brick & mortar business with a website
  6. Collecting private data on your website
  7. Posting data on your website

Here is a comparison of issues of traditional insurance compared to E-Business

Traditional                                       E-Business

Physical Premises                                         Virtual World

Physical Customers                                      Virtual Customer

Limited Customer Potential                        Unlimited Customer Potential

Tangible Property                                         Physical & Virtual Property

Direct Physical Damage                                Destruction, Alteration & Manipulation

Bodily Injury /Property Damage                Acts, Errors & Omissions

Limited Worldwide                                       Unlimited

What are some of the main reasons businesses need to review their insurance for Cyber needs?

Traditional Insurance does not coverage Internet exposures:

  1. No direct physical loss
  2. Errors & Omissions vs. bodily injury or property damage
  3. Existing policies are silent on these issues
  4. Policy territory does not apply
  5. It was never intended to be covered
