The Hartford Enhances Cyber-Liability Policy

November 11, 2009

The Hartford is offering broader coverage for data privacy breaches and social media liability exposures as part of its cyber liability policy, the company said.

“We’re seeing widespread adoption of social media technologies among businesses in virtually every industry,” said Drew Bartkiewicz, vice president of cyber and new media risk at The Hartford. “At the same time, data is becoming increasingly regulated, which is creating new exposures, particularly in the areas of data privacy and reputational risk.”

Among those social media exposures covered in The Hartford CyberChoice 2.09 policy: online defamation, advertising, libel and slander, by employees or casual users of a company’s Web site. The policy also defines the term “rogue employee” and provides coverage for such employee’s misuse of technology.

Available coverage options include: Data Privacy, E-media and Internet Liability, Network Security, Infringement of Intellectual Property (IP) Rights, Professional Services, Business Interruption,
Cyber Investigation Expense and Cyber Extortion.
