As a small business owner, you may think one insurance policy or an existing plan covers all of your needs. Unfortunately, many business operators fail to be familiar with all of the ins and outs of commercial insurance and affiliated coverage.
Read on for a brief glossary of commercial insurance terms that may or may not impact your small business.
BUSINESS OWNER’S POLICY (BOP)
As the owner of a business, you face significant risk should anything unexpected disrupts your ability to function as normal. A business owner’s policy (BOP) puts a safety net in place that accounts for all costs and risks involved with running a business. Usually policies bundle theft/vandalism, liability, vehicle, property and business interruption for maximum coverage and savings.
In our modern age, protecting your business’ digital properties is just as important as insuring the brick-and-mortar side. Data breach insurance allows your business to rebound while helping protect you and your clients’ sensitive information. Emergency IT diagnostics and recovery can be costly– don’t leave your business in harm’s way!
