Protecting Your Business’ Infrastructure

In addition to insuring the owner and employees, a business also requires certainty in terms of physical location and equipment. Whether you’re a sprawling corporation or a thriving small business, these are some of the most important kinds of coverage you’ll need to protect your property:

  • Lessor’s Risk if you are a building owner/property manager
  • Builder’s risk while your proepty is being renovated or for ground-up construction of Buildings, Greenhouses, or other commercial and personal property
  • Automobile Physical Damage and Liability

Mitigating Risks of Business in the Digital Age

Technology has become a staple in the day-to-day operations of every business. For this reason, you should have comprehensive digital and cyber breach insurance in addition to your other pertinent policies. Here are some of the most common technical issues facing business owners today that GreenWrap Insurance Solutions can help to mitigate:

  • Malware and ransomware attacks
  • Unexpected data loss
  • Privacy breaches
  • Extortion
  • And more…

With so many businesses conducting their affairs online, it’s no surprise that these kinds of attacks have become more frequent. The worst part is the speed and efficiency with which these attackers can steal your company’s data. The exposure of Personal Health Information (PHI) and resulting HIPAA fines can shake the core of the business and cause unrest with employees and patients.  Cyber Insurance can cover this exposure.  Carriers can cover notifications and fines that your third-party provider is not responsible for.  Cyber crimes have increased exponentitally due to the shift of employees working from home and the global reach of businesses in general.  More interaction equals more risk of a claim occurring. Data Breach is one of the biggest threats a business can face, and happens when we least expect it – which is why GreenWrap Insurance Solutions is standing by to ensure your business is prepared.
