Delegated authority/reinsurance solutions

The working landscape has changed significantly, with hybrid working now the new norm for millions of employees.

With less time spent working in designated offices and premises, what should businesses be thinking about in terms of managing computer equipment risks? Could agile working have left businesses underinsured? 

HSB Computer Insurance is specifically designed to provide comprehensive cover for computer-related risks. Split into four sections of cover, our policy provides customers with the flexibility to choose the level of cover they need:

  • Section 1 - Hardware
  • Section 2 - Reinstatement of data
  • Section 3 - Increased cost of working
  • Section 4 - Virus, hacking and denial of service attack

Sections 2, 3 and 4 are optional covers that can be selected in addition to ‘Section 1 - Hardware’ to enhance the level of cover.

Also, Section 4 cover automatically extends to cover costs insured under Section 2 and extra costs insured under Section 3; if the additional cover or covers have been taken by the customer.
