Farmers Insurance Provides New Cyber Liability and Data Breach

Farmers Insurance Provides New Cyber Liability and Data Breach
Coverage Program for Main Street Businesses in Kansas 
LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/18/13 --  Farmers Insurance
Group of Companies(R) has introduced a new Cyber Liability and Data
Security program to protect main street businesses in Kansas. 
Farmers explains that there is no question that incidents of cyber
liability and data security breaches are on the rise. The cost of a
security breach today can have a devastating impact on businesses and
that is why we felt it important to provide this coverage.  
The coverage was provided automatically for all Business Owner Policy
(BOP) industries with a modified premium less than $50,000.  

--  The coverage is provided immediately for all new Business Owner
    Policies, with an effective date of January 1, 2013.
--  The coverage will be automatically provided for all renewal Business
    Owner Policies with an effective date of March 1, 2013.
--  New and renewal customers will receive a letter giving them the option
    to not accept the coverage if they choose.

There are federal and state reporting obligations required by law and
the dissemination of personal information as a result of a breach can
also expose a business to third party liability, Farmers Insurance
notes. That's where Farmers Cyber Liability and Data Breach expense
coverage can help. 
Farmers Cyber Liability and Data Breach Expense coverage offers:  

--  $50,000 aggregate annual limit
--  $2,500 self-insured retention
--  Third party liability coverage
--  Privacy breach response services including customer notification and
    forensic and legal assistance
--  Extended reporting period available
--  Free data security risk management services through
