Beazley Updates MediaTech Policy with E&O, Cyber Coverage

June 6, 2019

Specialist insurer Beazley has streamlined its MediaTech insurance policy to provide clear and concise wording and combined comprehensive errors and omissions (E&O) and media liability insurance with cyber coverage.

Beazley’s E&O and media coverage includes:

  • Broad professional liability to address the need to cover non-technology professional services
  • Unintentional breach of contract for professional liability exposure
  • Online and offline media, including content published on social media
  • A wide range of trade secret misappropriation claims
  • Unfair competition alleged with copyright or trademark infringement
  • Mental anguish and emotional distress
  • Defamation, invasion of privacy and plagiarism.

Cyber coverage has also been incorporated into the policy. This includes:

  • Breach response costs
  • First-party coverage for cyber extortion
  • Data recovery costs
  • Business interruption and dependent business interruption resulting from security breaches and system failures
  • E-crime coverage for fraudulent instruction fraud, funds transfer fraud and telephone fraud.

Beazley offers access to a full suite of pre-breach and risk management services through its in-house Beazley Breach Response Services team.

As well as accessing Beazley’s newest E&O coverage, businesses can also access its team’s claims experience. E&O claims have involved software failures, hardware defects, implementation errors and downtime, as well as intellectual property rights and personal injury disputes arising from media content.
