HSB Computer Insurance
Comprehensive cover for commercial computer hardware, data losses, increased costs, and virus, hacking and denial of service
Delegated Authority/Reinsurance Solutions
There is often the option to insure computer equipment under a combined commercial or property policy, however these may not fully cover all computer risks. HSB Computer Insurance is a commercial product specifically designed to offer comprehensive cover for computer-related risks.
We provide a number of leading insurance companies and MGAs with innovative, all-encompassing commercial computer risk solutions.
Our policy is split into four sections, providing 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
'Section 1 – Hardware' is the core cover, which provides insurance for installed and portable computer equipment. Sections 2-4 are optional covers that can be selected in addition to hardware to enhance the level of cover.
Key features of HSB Computer Insurance
- Electronic office equipment can be automatically included under 'Section 1 - Hardware'. For example, photocopiers; video, audio conferencing and projection equipment; and associated software and programs.
- Extra hardware is automatically covered up to maximum £500,000, during the annual period of insurance, should the insured accidently forget to inform us.
- Following an incident, cover will pay to remove viruses and will help clients to get specialist advice to prevent future viruses or hacking.
- Full theft cover – no forcible and violent entry/exit condition.
- Low policy excesses (£150) and nil for damage caused by fire, lightning, explosion, aircraft and theft. Only £50 excess for mobile telephones and smartphones.
