Cyber Liability Insurance

Many agencies offer more general coverage and broad policies provided by cyber insurance companies. However, at Beacon Insurance Agency, we have dedicated years of service in meeting the highly specialized insurance needs of churches, nonprofits, and private schools. We offer them financial protection that allows them to more safely navigate the risks they face in serving their community and the world. Technology changes every day. For that reason, risks have significantly increased as the presence of cyber threats heightens the possibility of liability. So we offer a wide range of options in cyber liability insurance policies tailored to meet the specific needs of our clients.

The Internet is a very broad platform. Therefore, a cyber insurance policy must also be very broad.  It must provide insurance coverage for non-electronic or written information as well as electronic information. This includes forms and applications. Cyber insurance coverage addresses the risks associated with the use of computers and the Internet. Further, it addresses privacy issues that may arise with the transmission or exchange of electronic and non-electronic information.

Cyber Liability Insurance Policies

At Beacon, we offer Cyber Liability Insurance policies designed for the coverage of churches, nonprofit organizations, and private schools that use electronic methods of communication. We cover you if you maintain a dedicated website or accept the transfer of electronic funds. In addition, we work with you if you acquire confidential information including health information, social security numbers, credit card numbers and bank account information. You need coverage if you store information electronically or otherwise. Due to the nature of its business, there are numerous situations that require a church to collect personal information from employees and members. All of these situations could potentially put the church at risk in the event of a security breach.
