Get the right protection for your needs
As a freelance or contracted compliance officer or manager, you provide advice and support on how individuals and businesses can comply with laws, regulations, and policies. In doing this you help to ensure good governance and the mitigation of risks for your clients.
A key risk for anyone working in your industry is that you fail to adequately advise your clients about significant regulatory requirements leading to investigations and, potentially, fines. This could result in a claim being brought against you for negligence.
Our professional indemnity insurance policy for individuals providing compliance services protects you against the cost of settling or defending a client’s claim that there is a problem with the work you have done for them.
Why choose Hiscox Professional Indemnity Insurance for compliance services
Our policy provides cover for:
- negligence or breach of duty of care – making a mistake in your work or giving bad advice
- infringement of intellectual property rights – for example using content from a website or publication without permission
- breach of confidence – sharing confidential or sensitive information without consent
- defamation – making false or damaging claims about a person or organisation
- civil liability – if a claim occurs because of your business activity for a client and we haven’t specifically excluded it, it’s covered.
