    HSB Computer Insurance in action

    An insured’s premises experienced extensive flooding following a storm, resulting in various items of computer and other IT equipment being submerged in flood water.
    During a presentation, an insured’s MacBook was accidentally knocked off a table. Not only was the screen damaged in the fall, it had also warped and, as a result, the computer would not enter sleep mode when the lid was closed. The laptop was deemed to be beyond repair.
    The main power distribution board at a firm of solicitors suffered a power spike. The resulting  failure caused considerable damage and disruption to the computer network. Data had  to be restored by a specialist IT company.
    An employee of a manufacturing company became the victim of crime when their laptop was stolen from the boot of their vehicle.
