What are your technology consultant insurance requirements? Your clients view you as an expert. Not only do they place a great deal of trust in your advice, they also have to trust you enough to give you access to their most sensitive business data. Mistakes can happen, which is why you need to have insurance in place to protect you, your business, and your clients.
Companies need efficient and dependable IT systems. This means that even the smallest error on your part can have devastating consequences for your clients. So if you're self employed in the tech sector, a technology contractor, freelancer, or small business, professional indemnity insurance can give you total peace of mind that everything will be taken care of should the worst ever happen.
If your clients allege that you've made a mistake in your work, whether through bad advice or poor service, professional indemnity insurance will give you the protection you need while also covering any financial compensation for your clients. It's likely that some of your clients will refuse to work with you unless you have a comprehensive insurance policy in place. They may even ask you to send a copy of your insurance certificate before they allow any work to start.
You'll be entrusted with a lot of sensitive data in your line of work, and you're no doubt aware of the risks of cyber crime. So for total peace of mind for you and your clients, we also advise you to protect yourself with cyber breach insurance.
