Hiscox adds Crime and Data Breach and Privacy options to Hiscox Professional Liability Portfolio PR Newswire NEW YORK, June 12, 2013 NEW YORK, June 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Hiscox, the international specialist insurer, today launched phase two of their Hiscox Professional Liability Portfolio, adding two additional coverage options to the existing portfolio. Professional Services Firms can now add Crime and Data Breach and Privacy Security Liability, in addition to General Liability coverage to their Hiscox Professional Liability policies. Hiscox Professional Liability Portfolio launched in February with industry specific forms for occupations needing Allied Healthcare (AHC), Architects & Engineers (A&E) and Miscellaneous Professional Liability (MPL) insurance coverage. Simplified policy language and the ability to cross-sell new coverages to clients are the hallmarks of the Hiscox Professional Liability Portfolio. Crime is an ongoing risk for organizations of all sizes. A typical organization can lose 5% of its overall revenue to fraud each year with private companies being the most frequent victims and suffering the highest median loss. 49% of organizations that are victims of fraud do not recover (via insurance or other methods) any of those losses. (Association of Certified Fraud Examiners 2012 study). Data Breach is another growing risk for professional service firms. Small- to medium-sized companies lose an average of $188,242 per breach, and two-thirds of victimized companies went out of business within six months of the breach (Symantec Corporation 2013 Internet Security Threat Report. Vol. 18).
