technology hardware and electronics insurance

Why do you need specialist hardware and electronics insurance?

No matter where your business operates in the supply chain, from hardware manufacturers to suppliers, to installers, it is important that you have the right insurance in place to protect you if something goes wrong. Most businesses rely on their IT systems to operate smoothly, and if it fails it can quickly lead to them losing valuable profit. If an IT system failure is due to a fault of equipment your business supplied, you could be liable for the cost of the failure.

What insurance does a technology hardware and electronics contractor or professional need?

Not sure what insurance you need to protect your technology hardware and electronics business? We’ll work with you to identify your needs before presenting an insurance solution that meets your complexities, but you may wish to consider:

Professional indemnity - covers the legal and compensation costs you may have to pay if a client makes a claim against you.

Public liability – covers you for the cost of a claim arising from a suffered injury or property damage caused by you or your employees.

Employers' liability (EL) – compulsory by law for most businesses, EL provides cover if a worker suffers an injury or an illness they believe is your fault.

Directors and officers – also known as management liability portfolio insurance (MLP), provides any director, partner or employee acting in a managerial capacity on behalf of the company cover for defence costs incurred during a claim and awards made against you personally.

Cyber liability insurance – although this can’t protect your business from cyber-crime such as hacking, it can support your recovery from it along with the legal and reputational fall-out caused from a data breach.
