Digital Technology Exposes Business to Greater Liability

Digital Technology Exposes Business to Greater Liability

LAKE SAINT LOUIS, Mo., April 2, 2008 /PRNewswire/ -- As the use of digital technology continues to expand, technology companies are threatened with greater liability for loss associated with unauthorized access, data theft, and even denial of service attacks. Stuckey & Company gives critical professional liability options that offer coverage for cyber liability and network operations security. Their technology insurance program can give both 1st and 3rd party coverage for networks and sensitive data to small firms, who don't typically have access to this type of coverage, at an affordable price.

According to Maggie Hammett, Senior Technology Underwriter at Stuckey & Company, "This coverage is rarely seen in the market. Some companies say they include 'cyber liability' but only give coverage for work that they do for others [3rd party]. At Stuckey, we offer network operations security coverage that's typically labeled cyber liability. Network Operations Security gives coverage for failure to prevent Unauthorized Access to or Unauthorized use of the insured's computer system that results in theft, alteration or destruction of data, hacker attacks against third parties, breach of privacy, denial of service attacks, denial of access and the failure to prevent the transmission of malicious code."

Conducting any type of business over the Internet exposes companies to cyber risk. Whether a company stores confidential information or hosts an informational public website, it could be held liable for unauthorized acts by employees or people outside of the company. Even if you have the newest state-of-the-art equipment and controls, your corporate assets could be at risk. "Traditional liability insurance doesn't typically address the types of risk associated with the Internet or other digital applications," says Hammett. "And many companies don't realize they're not covered from these risks."

Stuckey & Company has taken a proactive approach in developing a technology-focused insurance program. The new program also gives rating credits for risk characteristics like number of years in business, experience and accreditation of key professionals, quality of written contracts, and internal audit procedures. Credits up to 50% are available depending on the state. Professional services endorsements are available for management consulting, telecommunications, and IT staffing.

Stuckey has also taken the time to revamp their application and processing systems to get each of their customers the information and the coverage they need faster, more efficiently, and more effectively. Stuckey and Company focuses on future risks and continually strives to address the newest risk management paradigms.

Stuckey is focused on small to mid-sized technology accounts and offers low minimum premiums like $1,000 for a $1,000,000 limit. New rating factors for individual risk characteristics are also available. Visit http://www.stuckey.com/products/tek for business insurance quotes and a complete list of eligibility.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
