Protect Yourself, Protect Your Business.

Strickler Insurance Offers Identity Fraud Coverage And Cyber Liability, For Your Peace Of Mind.

Cyber Liability & Security Breach Coverage

Most business owners think of securing their business risks by purchasing liability coverage and property protection. With most customer information being stored electronically and the growing popularity of the internet and social networking websites, there is another very real risk: Cyber Liability. What information does your computer contain? Do you have social security numbers, medical records, or other personal information of your clients? Whether the information is leaked by a hacker, or by human error by your employee, you need to protect your clients’ information.

Purchasing a Cyber Liability Policy  will cover you for expenses such as:

  • Cost of notifying your clients, printing letters, postage costs, etc.
  • Crisis Management Expenses
  • Fines & Penalties
  • Credit Monitoring costs for your clients, which could be mandated by the government
  • Coverage and Defense costs if a client’s identity is stolen and they file a suit against you

 Identity Fraud Expense Coverage

You’ve spent your entire life building a solid credit rating. Unfortunately, nearly 10 million people just like you fall victim to identity theft each year. The costs are staggering—according to the Federal Trade Commission, annual out-of-pocket losses exceed $50 BILLION.

Add Identity Fraud Expense Coverage to your Homeowners policy, so that you are covered for unexpected expenses such as:

  • Cost for notarizing affidavits or similar documents attesting to fraud
  • Cost for certified mail
  • Lost income resulting from the time taken off work to complete fraud affidavits, meet with or talk to law enforcement agencies, credit agencies and/or legal counsel
  • Loan application fees for re-applying for a loan when the original application is rejected, solely because the lender received incorrect credit information
  • Reasonable attorney fees incurred as a result of identity fraud
