                WE CAN HELP

                Almost all states have enacted laws requiring notification of breaches involving personal information. These laws mandate prompt notification and may impose civil or criminal penalties for failure to promptly disclose the data breach. If a business has customers in more than one state, the business is vulnerable to respond to multiple data breach laws in all states where their customers reside. Additionally, some federal laws, such as HITECH and Red Flag rules, can impact medical risks and risks involved in financial credit. With our Data Compromise Coverage, you can provide your small- and mid-sized business clients with an effective turnkey solution.


                ABOUT THE RISKS

                Virtually all businesses collect personal data on clients, employees and others. Did you know...

                • Small- or mid-sized firms are less equipped to protect private a personal data.
                  • Most organizations will experience a personal data breach at some time.
                    • Identity thieves target smaller companies since their records are easier to steal.
                      • Studies show almost 60 percent of consumers terminated or considered terminating their relationships with businesses that experienced a data breach.
                        • It’s the law. Almost all states now have laws requiring notification of security breaches involving personal, non-public information.
