Delaware Business Insurance Update from CNC Insurance Associates Inc. " Year Ends With A Byte" 12-24-14

As we close out another business year, the big story for 2014 has to be cyber risk. Every business owner will need to consider cyber attacks and find ways to protect against them. Cyber risk has now become part of the risk management and insurance conversation. In the eyes of business owners it should be protected against like fire, wind and other perils. How the insurance industry responded to breaches is also a big story, as many claims were excluded under the liability policy, but enhanced coverage under special cyber risk insurance policies saved the day ( if they were bought) .

Until next time be careful out there and know your risk.

Or your building just had some wind damage and as soon as the storm subsides drones from the insurance company are flying over taking pictures of the damage and sending the images back to the claims office. You can only imagine the many uses of drones in the insurance business, and that is just what insurance companies are doing.
