Advanced cover for a specialised industry
Finally there is an insurance product that fills serious IT exposure gaps left by generic professional indemnity cover. What’s more, IT businesses no longer need to take out a handful of separate insurances to cover all aspects of their products and services.
Closing the gaps in the cover
IT Insurance was developed to overcome the shortcomings of a standard Professional Indemnity (PI) and Product Liability policies. This is because of the blurred distinction in the information technology industry between a product and a service.
For example, a standard PI policy will only respond to IT claims if they relate to a design flaw – but for software and other IT developers, this is rarely the case. The history of litigation shows that when claimants have a problem with functionality, the cause is far more complex – the usual large number of satisfied users of the software only strengthens the case against design error.
Added to this complexity is the unique regulatory regime controlling IT businesses such as Internet Service Providers. This necessitates insurance for IT that covers actions in respect of the Telecommunications Industry Ombudsman Alternative Dispute Resolution Scheme.
Combine your insurances under one roof
