Definition of Errors and Omissions

In layman’s terms, errors and omissions insurance for your technology company is equivalent to that of malpractice insurance for doctors. It protects your company in case a client claims that the services you provided were lacking or failed; or that your company’s software had errors, or did not perform as promised.  Coverage includes the cost of defending judgments against you such as legal defense and court costs, up to the limits of your policy.

What it Covers

Errors and omissions insurance covers technology products and/or services. To elaborate, website designers provide technology services, companies that accommodate data storage provide technology services, and companies that manufacture computers and/or computer software provide technology products.

These types of policies cover liability and property loss. Major liability covers:

  • Technology services
  • Technology products
  • Media content
  • Network security breaches

Key property agreements cover:

  • Extortion threats
  • Crisis management expense
  • Business interruption

Technology errors and omissions insurance is often confused with cyber and privacy insurance which protects the consumers of technology products and services. Our next installment will discuss the ins and outs of cyber and privacy insurance.
