Media & Technology

Media & technology are revolutionising the way we communicate with each other, as businesses operate on a global scale.

 

Over the last few years this sector has faced a number of challenges, meaning traditional liability and professional indemnity policies are no longer suitable.

​The technology, media and telecommunications sector is perhaps the most innovative, disruptive and fastest changing sectors today, revolutionising the way we live, work, communicate and entertain ourselves.
 
The are many risks faced by this industry and that's why Northern Risk Solutions work with some of the leading technology underwriters and insurers that have an in-depth understanding of the sector to bring you a dedicated range of policies.

Target market

We have the ability to offer a range of different policies for this sector, including Professional Indemnity, Cyber Liability, Commercial Crime, General Liability, Directors & officers Liability and Property Damage.

 

Our policies are not just targeted at large organisations. Any business that collects and stores personal data, has a website or uses email or social media can be affected, for example:

Features of a cyber policy
  • coverage for data held 'in the cloud'
  • media liability
  • advertising and personal injury
  • defamation, including libel and slander
  • intellectual property rights infringement
  • invasion of privacy
  • breach of contract
  • cyber liability, privacy liability and privacy breach including first party & third party breach notification costs
  • employers' liability
  • Court attendance costs
  • Crisis communication costs
  • Consequential reputational harm
  • dishonesty of employees and fellow directors

Unfortunately, Cyber crime accounts for 50 per cent of all reported UK crimes, and nearly half of British firms have suffered an attack in the last year. With almost every aspect of modern business relying heavily on information technology, a cyber attack can cripple a company’s operations.

 

A Cyber policy is designed to protect a business against the range of risks associated with digital technology and provides critical support in case of a cyber event.
