Common Questions - Smart Tech E+O Insurance


 

Our Tech E+O policy is our Cyber policy plus Technology and Professional Services Liability coverage (for any amounts, subject to the limit of insurance, that your business is required to pay as the result of an act, error, or omission in the rendering of your services or the failure of your products to perform as intended).

Corvus considers several factors when calculating premiums, including the applicant's score on our scan, the applicant's revenue, the quality of the applicant's cybersecurity controls, the limit requested, and the types of technology services being offered.

Premiums can range depending on the type and size of the business insured. Annual premiums start at around $3,000.

  • An HR software provider with thousands of small business customers discovers a bug in their software that caused errors in calculations pertaining to accounting and pay records. A number of affected customers sued for the failure, seeking reimbursement for the software usage fees as well as for the costs to remediate the errors. In this case, technology products coverage would be triggered.

  • An app developer was hired by a client to build a mobile app to better serve the client's customers. The client noticed that download activity was much lower than expected; then complaints began to come in from customers who were getting an error message when trying to sign up for the app. Thousands of users were not able to sign up and the client sued for lost revenues. The app developer's Tech E+O policy would cover this claim.

Tech E+O insurance is specific to technology services and software companies. It is a combination of Cyber coverage and tailored E+O (Errors + Omissions) coverage to protect policyholders in the event of an error in the rendering of their services. Combining these coverage types on one policy eliminates the possibility of finger-pointing between carriers since the same event could trigger both a Cyber and an E+O claim.
