New General Liability and Cyber Liability Protection Now Available Exclusively to NASW members
Did you know that you can be sued if one of your clients is injured at your office, or if sensitive client data and records are lost? NASW does!
NASW Assurance Services, Inc. (ASI) is pleased to announce the launch of its new General Liability and Cyber Liability Insurance Programs. NASW members can add either or both of these optional coverages to their existing NASW-Endorsed Professional Liability Insurance Policy.
Why Do you Need General and Cyber Liability Protection?
General Liability Protection is a critical option that protects your practice in case injury or property damage occurs to others as a result of your business operations. Your practice can be sued for almost anything:
- Property damage
- Bodily/personal injury
- Advertising injury
- Fire legal liability
Individuals can add this option to their policy for $154 annual premium for $1,000,000/$3,000,000 limits.
Cyber Liability Protection is growing in popularity and necessity as technology continues to grow and so does the exposure now faced by businesses that operate online or store sensitive client data electronically on business computer systems. This coverage safeguards your practice when storing sensitive client data electronically or liabilities associated with doing business online. It helps protect your practice against the costs of security breaches. You are at risk of liability if any of these situations happen to you:
- Sensitive client data that has been stored on lost/stolen laptops or backup devices
- Improper disposal of computer equipment
- Hacked computer
- Negligent release of data
The HIPAA HITECH law holds social workers liable for data privacy breaches by third-parties. Leaving businesses exposed to the risk of a negligent act by a third-party partner and having to defend themselves in court.
Individuals can add this option to their policy for $59 annual premium for $5,000/$5,000 limits or $99 annual premium for $5,000/$12,000 limits.
The NASW-Endorsed Professional Liability Insurance Program is the only coverage endorsed by NASW. And these optional coverages make this program even better. Policyholders with the NASW-Endorsed Professional Liability Insurance Program enjoy:
