Considering the right insurance cover should be a must for small businesses, whether you are heading up a small marketing consultancy, providing management advice or working as a freelance IT professional. What is certain is that these professions all face their own specific risks. Tech firms and IT professionals such as website designers, software programmers and computer consultants can consider insurance policies specifically tailored to their sector. A tailored policy can help protect them for financial loss if things go wrong – for example the online sales basket you set up on a new website you’ve created may not work, you may have inadvertently used some code in a new programme you’ve written that’s been copyrighted by a rival or you might accidentally open up a client’s system to a hacker attack while doing routine maintenance. All of these can result in a major financial and legal headache if you’re not careful.
