The technology sector is constantly evolving. With new products and developing risks set against a background of increased customer expectation & severe time pressures, businesses in this field need reliable insurance protection.

For IT companies, an off-the-shelf insurance solution is not enough. Chubb cover can guard against IT specific risks as well as protecting your property and people. These can be cyber risks, contract exposures and cover for your research and development.

Can we insure you?

The information and technology sector covers an enormous array of businesses. All with specific needs and diverse challenges. Here are some examples of ICT companies covered by Chubb.

Value added manufacturer/reseller of hardware and software:

Under their existing insurance programme this company had a number of gaps including no worldwide cover even though they had worldwide sales and no Errors & Omissions – they thought this was picked up under their general liability policy. We worked closely with the broker to put together a package insurance programme that ensured seamless cover and gave them peace of mind.

Telecommunications service provider:

We took the time to meet with this client to understand the various revenue streams of their business. With enhanced knowledge we were able to put together a bespoke programme of covers including multinational exposures. Our ability to offer loss control services that complimented the existing risk management work, at no additional charge really demonstrated our value added offering.

Developer and seller of analysis and visualisation software:

At a client meeting this company outlined that their offices in Germany were responsible for Research & Development (R&D) for the European operations and that these offices were insured by another company. It came to light that if a R&D loss had ensued at this location it would affect product development and overall business operations in Europe and it would not have been covered. We were able to provide the necessary R&D cover within the German policy and ensure all European operations were insured with Chubb to guarantee continuity of cover across all territories.
