Key Coverages & Features
Privacy Regulation Liability Coverage
With the Province of Alberta having (what we hear is) the toughest Privacy Legislation in the country, whether it is the possibility of cyber liability lawsuits or answering to Alberta’s Privacy Commissioner, is a reality that every business owner should consider.
If a business were to violate any Privacy Regulation, the intent of this coverage is pay for all regulatory expenses incurred during a privacy regulation claim including a civil proceeding, investigation, or request for information against the insured for the actual or alleged violation of privacy regulations. This could be brought forth by any government, be it local, provincial, federal, or foreign.
Ransomware Attack Coverage*
Ransomware is the fastest-growing cyber trend that cost victims over $24 million in 2015, according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation2. A ransomware attack occurs when a cybercriminal infiltrates a computer system, inserting malware that blocks access to data, systems, or files until the user pays a ransom to end or remove the attack. This coverage acts to pay expenses for crisis management, fraud response, public relations, and forensic and legal costs.
A social engineering fraud is a scheme that intentionally misleads an employee into sending money or diverting a payment. Typically the fraudulent information is provided to the employee through email, letter, phone call – or even in person by pretending to be someone else.
Beyond the actual loss limit, this coverage includes expenses related to crisis management, fraud response, public relations, and forensic and legal.
* All insurance coverage described is intended to be general in nature and subject to the applicable insurer’s specific policy wording, terms, conditions, and exclusions.
