Your company probably maintains a network, database, email address or online presence, but are you actually protected from the multitude of cyber risks? A hacker halfway around the world could steal customer data or an employee could simply misplace a laptop.
  • What would you do if your customer data was compromised?
  • Many states require companies to notify their customers in the event of a security breach. How much would you be forced to pay in notification expenses?
  • What if your customers or vendors initiated a lawsuit against you?

Just one incident could result in enormous losses, as well as damage your reputation.
Most logistics companies offer Web-based services, and as a result, you face major exposures with data security, management of confidential information and infringement of intellectual property rights. According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, cyber threats doubled during 2009 and 2010, with 55,000 new viruses, worms, spyware and other threats attacking the Internet every day.

Are you covered?
Typical General Liability policies won't offer protection for these wide-ranging exposures, or existing coverage will be extremely limited. Can your business afford the astronomical legal fees and notification costs in the event of a claim?

Avalon offers protection when you're held liable for cyber security threats. Coverage can be provided for e-theft, copyright or trademark infringement, e-vandalism, destruction of data, privacy notification expenses, crisis management and more.
