February 2014

Ascent Underwriting has launched our 2014 CyberPro wording, which now includes two new coverage modules to further enhance our erisks solution. The new modules provide valuable coverage for protection of intangible assets, and enhanced business interruption extending to loss of contract. In addition, coverage is now provided for electronic computer crime and fraud indemnity, incorporating protection from both third party crime and employee theft.

The new coverage is designed to bridge the gap between traditional crime policies and the business risks associated with cyber related risk. Our crime coverage includes traditional fraud reimbursement from theft of electronic funds, but also extends to cover losses where the fraud causes loss of an insured’s tangible product or merchandise, or compromises a trade secret or non-tangible asset resulting in a loss of revenue. The reputational risk enhancements will reimburse an insured for loss of income following the loss of a client or contract resulting from a network event.

CyberPro is a comprehensive modular form, which combines comprehensive miscellaneous and technology professional services with a market leading network security and non-tangible risk solution.

The new product is available for US, Canadian and UK clients and complements our other comprehensive solutions. It is part of a number of new coverage initiatives that Ascent will be launching throughout 2014.
