    Why You Need Tech E&O Insurance

    Running your own business is hard. It’s not just about providing your products or services to your customers. There are also the fundamental steps of getting your company up and running, finding the right target market for your product, and managing your company finances. As your business grows, you may also need to stay on top of your lease agreement, look into business real estate options, and hire a team of employees.In addition to the above, it’s also extremely important for small business owners to make sure that they have insurance for their company or startup. And for businesses in the tech industry, having the right insurance is essential to helping protect yourself and your company.As a tech professional, there are unique aspects to your products or services when compared to a brick-and-mortar or retail business. The things you sell are often intangible. With insurance designed specifically for your field, you can protect your ideas and intellectual property, along with your digital products or services.

    Commonly Asked Questions

    What you need to know about Tech E&O Insurance

    This type of insurance is a very common policy for business professionals and entrepreneurs in all kinds of fields. It typically covers legal fees and damage awards if a client or third-party sues you for negligence, misrepresentation, or inaccurate advice. E&O insurance protects you and your business from the financial fallout of a professional error or omission, so your company can continue to run in the event of a lawsuit.

    As a common kind of coverage in a wide variety of professional industries, errors and omissions insurance also goes by a few other names. For example, it’s often called professional liability insurance (PLI) as well, since it covers you as a small business owner or entrepreneur if you are sued by a client, even if you are not at fault.

    In certain professions, E&O is also referred to as malpractice insurance. This kind of policy is typically designed for a specific field, such as medical professionals and lawyers. In these instances, it’s common for the insurance product to be called medical malpractice insurance or legal malpractice insurance.

    It is the same idea for tech E&O insurance.

    As a tech professional, specific errors and omissions coverage designed for the owners and operators of tech companies helps protect you from large financial losses.

    In most cases, technology errors and omissions insurance will cover legal and court fees, any settlement payments, and legal judgements. It is an insurance solution that operates similarly to a typical errors and omissions policy. The difference is that this policy covers the complexities of a technology business, as well as products and services that are unique to the industry, such as software and computer hardware.
