Pro ERM is a fully integrated solution that enables professional service firms to manage and insure the growing exposures that companies face in the digital era. Pro ERM is an expansion of Chubb’s comprehensive Cyber ERM policy that gives organizations of all sizes an enterprise risk management solution to address professional, media, and cyber exposures.

Pro ERM combines the following coverages:

  • Professional Liability
    • Professional liability results from errors or omissions in the performance of professional services.

For such companies, it is increasingly necessary to purchase professional liability insurance that covers both professional and technology services.
  • Electronic, Social and Printed Media Liability
    • Chubb understands the advertising of a professional service firm in today’s world encompasses printed materials, websites, and a social media presence. Defamation, copyright infringement, and trademark infringement are just some of the exposures associated with the promotion of an organization. Chubb’s Electronic, Social and Printed Media Liability coverage was developed to address these media activities.
  • Cyber, Privacy and Network Security Liability

Why should a professional service firm purchase Pro ERM?

  • Clients may require a service firm to carry professional liability insurance.
  • Clients may hold a service firm responsible for their liability if such liability arises out of the service firm’s action.
  • Clients may incorporate the service firm’s work product into the products or services they provide to others. A lawsuit can be brought by any third party who relies on, or is adversely impacted by, the service—not just the immediate client.
  • Service firms may have access to proprietary business information or personal protected information and have a duty to safeguard that information.
  • Service firms may hire and oversee subcontractors to provide certain services on their behalf. Clients may hold the service firm responsible for the work product of the subcontractors.
  • Having the right insurance in place can actually be a marketing advantage when competing against companies to win a service contract.
