Today, criminals do not necessarily use weapons—they also use computers. Protecting yourself and your CPA firm from crimes that may include cybercrimes does not have to be a daunting task. The combination of your professional liability policy and the crime endorsement can help limit exposure against financial loss caused by criminals, including some cybercriminals, but your firm also may face additional risks due, in part, to the sensitive information you store.
Two other optional endorsements CPA NetProtect® and CPA NetProtect PRIME®
can help address risk exposures for third party claims of network damage, extortion demands, and the expenses associated with a privacy data breach, such as client notification and credit monitoring. CPA NetProtect PRIME® can help limit exposure against covered first party loss that may include business interruption and network impairment, and could pay costs for covered regulatory proceedings and/or fines arising from a violation of privacy breach notice law. Please contact us to inquire.
