Endurance enhances cyber offering with D&O coverage

Endurance has announced that it will make improvements to its Premier Professional product with Endurance CyberWrap, an additional Side A Directors and Officers (D&O) liability coverage.

The coverage would apply to non-indemnified D&O losses triggered by a privacy breach or other network security failure, providing primary D&O coverage where there is no program in place and provides specific excess protection over existing D&O coverage.

The endorsement is available to both public and private companies with revenues up to $500 million.

CyberWrap, Endurance Pro's latest network security and privacy offering, follows the company's recent introduction of Endurance Breach Assist, a cyber liability product which provides insureds with data breach coverage and immediate access to best-in-class legal and technology expertise to respond to data breach events.

Dan Wadley, executive vice president, Endurance Pro comments, "Endurance is committed to developing world class capabilities and innovative products to protect our clients from the increasing frequency and severity of network and data breach incidents. We are pleased to introduce CyberWrap, our latest security and privacy offering. By adding a D&O liability component, CyberWrap further strengthens the professional and cyber liability protection offered under our Endurance Premier Professional form."

Brad Gow, senior vice president, Endurance Pro, adds "Recent events have demonstrated that directors and officers are not immune to privacy related litigation. We have seen a number of lawsuits filed against directors and officers for, among other things, breaches of fiduciary duty and the waste of corporate assets related to high profile network security failures. Endurance CyberWrap provides Side A protection in the event of a security breach and can be used to complement in force D&O coverages."
