Insuring your security business
For professionals providing a service and guidance in security, business insurance is essential. While your day-to-day concerns centre on helping other businesses to stay safe, you need to know you could carry on and still serve your clients if anything happened to your premises, your equipment or any of the sensitive data you hold. Having the right insurance policy in place means you’re covered, so you can get on with doing what you do best.
Why you need business insurance as a security professional
A problem with your premises
Since security is your trade you’ll have given careful consideration to making sure your own premises are protected against burglars. But there’s no guarantee that you can keep them safe from a determined thief, then there are other unexpected events like a fire or flood that could threaten to stop your business from running as normal. You need to know how you’d continue to satisfy your clients while dealing with your own crisis.
You’ll know how delicate and expensive specialist security equipment can be, but you also need to think about non-specialist gear that still plays a big role in running your business, like laptops, phones and tablets. If they’re broken or stolen and you can’t fulfil your obligations, that’s a real headache. Personal equipment insurance from Hiscox means you can replace them quickly, so you’re able to get on with your work.
Cyber criminals hack you
Once again, as a security professional you’ll know the value of keeping data safe. Working in your field means you’re trusted with information that’s confidential and wouldn’t otherwise be freely available. But it’s all too easy to accidentally share it and despite your precautions, a cyber criminal could still target you and threaten to make personal or business data available. If that happens, you need to be able to deal with it quickly and decisively.
