Errors and omissions insurance icon

Technology errors and omissions insurance

Network security companies pay an average of $72 per month, or $867 annually, for tech E&O insurance. This policy bundles errors and omissions insurance with cyber insurance at a lower cost than buying the policies separately.

Errors and omissions insurance, also known as professional liability insurance, provides financial protection against claims of professional negligence.

For example, if you fail to install key network security guards in a client's computer system or miss a deadline, you could find yourself facing a lawsuit.

Tech E&O adds third-party cyber insurance to this coverage, which extends protection in case a vulnerability in your network security services leads to a data breach or cyberattack at a client's business.

This is the average E&O insurance for network security companies who buy from Insureon:

Insurance premium: $72 per month
Policy limits: $1 million per occurrence; $1 million aggregate
Deductible: $2,500

The cost of errors and omissions insurance depends on factors such as the coverage limits you choose, the size of your business, and the type of data you work on.

Cyber insurance icon

Cyber insurance

Network security companies pay an average of $118 per month, or $1,415 per year, for cyber insurance. This policy is vital for network security businesses that store personal information, such as customers' credit card numbers, Social Security numbers, or email addresses.

Cyber insurance covers the cost of complying with your state's data breach laws after a cyber incident. It can pay for legal fees, customer notification costs, and other expenses related to a data breach or cyberattack. You may also see this policy referred to as cyber liability insurance or cybersecurity insurance.

The cost of cyber insurance primarily depends on the amount of personal information handled by your network security company.

General liability insurance icon

General liability insurance

Network security businesses pay an average of $30 per month, or $361 per year, for general liability insurance.

This policy helps pay for legal defense costs from accidents that damage a client's property or cause a bodily injury. It also covers lawsuits related to slander and libel, such as a claim that an employee at your network security business made a derogatory statement about a competitor on social media.

This is the average general liability insurance policy for network security companies who buy from Insureon:

Premium: $30 per month
Policy limits: $1 million per occurrence; $2 million aggregate
Deductible: $500

Insureon’s licensed agents typically recommend a business owner’s policy (BOP), which combines general liability insurance with commercial property insurance at a discount to protect your computers and other business property.

For network security companies, the average premium for a business owner's policy is $50 per month or $599 per year. You can also add business interruption insurance to protect against financial losses from a forced closure due to a fire or storm.

The cost of general liability insurance depends on factors such as the coverage limits you choose, the size of your business, the amount of foot traffic, and any subcontractors or additional insured endorsements. Learn more about how your premium is calculated.

Fidelity bond icon

Fidelity bonds

The average cost of a fidelity bond is $101 per month for network security companies, or $1,217 annually. Some clients, especially in the financial services industry, may require a bond before they will work with your network security business.

Fidelity bonds reimburse your client if one of your employees commits fraud, theft, or forgery, including illegal electronic funds transfer. This amount must be paid back to the company that issued the bond.

The cost of a fidelity bond is typically a small percentage of the bond amount.

Workers’ compensation insurance icon

Workers' compensation insurance

Network security companies pay an average of $36 per month or $432 annually for workers' compensation insurance. This policy covers medical expenses and disability benefits when you or an employee suffers a work-related injury or illness.

Network security businesses that have employees typically must purchase workers' comp to comply with state requirements and avoid penalties. It's also recommended for sole proprietors, as health insurance plans can deny claims for injuries related to your job.

Most policies include employer's liability insurance, which covers the cost of lawsuits related to workplace injuries.

The cost of workers' comp depends on the number of employees and their occupational risks, among other factors.

Commercial auto insurance icon

Commercial auto insurance

Network security companies pay an average of $187 per month, or $2,248 per year, for commercial auto insurance. This policy can pay for property damage and medical bills in an accident involving your company vehicle. It can also cover vehicle theft, vandalism, and weather damage.

Most states require this type of insurance for vehicles owned by a network security business. For personal, rented, and leased vehicles used for work purposes, look to hired and non-owned auto insurance (HNOA) instead.

The cost of commercial car insurance depends on several factors, including the policy limits you choose, coverage options, the number and value of your vehicles, and the driving records of anyone permitted to drive.
