Why do data centers need insurance?

A system crash or prolonged outage could cost your clients a lot of money and place you at risk of a lawsuit. Business insurance covers legal expenses when a client sues over lost data or failure to provide managed services. It can also cover injuries, fires, data breaches, and auto accidents.

Common questions about data center business insurance

What other insurance policies do data centers need?

Even with IT infrastructure redundancies and careful risk management, it’s impossible to eliminate every vulnerability. Depending on the specifics of your data center, you may want to consider additional policies, such as:

What's the difference between first-party and third-party cyber liability insurance?

When buying tech E&O and cyber insurance, you may come across the following terms:

  • First-party cyber liability insurance: This coverage covers cyber risks at your own business, such as a data breach that exposes your customer's email addresses or other personal information stored by your business. It's also called data breach insurance.
  • Third-party cyber liability insurance: A third-party cyber policy covers your responsibility for cyber risks that harm another business. For example, your data center might offer security services to your clients. If a weakness in that security causes your client's data to be exposed, then your data center could be held liable for the breach.

You can typically add first-party cyber coverage to your general liability insurance or business owner's policy. Third-party cyber coverage is included in tech E&O insurance, which bundles cyber insurance with errors and omissions insurance.
