IT Services Provider Claims Examples

Here are some examples of claims that IT consultants and MSPs need to consider:

Cybersecurity breach If a client experiences a data breach or cyberattack due to a security vulnerability in the MSP’s systems or services (e.g., failing to apply a patch on time resulting in a breach), the IT services provider may be liable for damages and may need to file an insurance claim to cover the costs of the breach investigation, remediation, and potential lawsuits.

Professional liability: If an employee makes an error or omission in their services or advice to a client that results in financial or reputational harm (e.g., client lost data due to a mistake while applying patches), the IT firm may be sued for professional liability. Insurance can cover the costs of legal defense and potential damages.

Property damage: If an IT firm’s equipment or services cause damage to a client’s property, such as a fire or water damage, the firm may be liable for the cost of repairs or replacement. This would typically fall under Comprehensive General Liability.

Business interruption: If an IT firm’s services are disrupted, either due to a fire, cyberattack, or other event, causing a client’s business to suffer financial loss, the firm may be liable for the client’s losses.

These are just a few examples of the types of claims that IT firms need to consider. At ARC Insurance Brokers, we understand that every IT firm is unique, and we are committed to providing customized coverage solutions to fit your specific needs. Every carrier we are partnered with has 24/7 claims emergency triaging to provide emergency response and guidance when you need it most.
