Why do advertising agencies need business insurance?

Media and advertising agencies face several risks – especially liability over what you publish. A client could sue over a mistake, or a competitor could file a lawsuit alleging defamation or copyright infringement. Advertising agency insurance covers these and other liabilities, such as injuries and cyberattacks.
