As noted in the media in recent years, cyber attacks have become an increased threat to the cyber security of a business. While the most prominent cases report have been attacks against large companies such as Target, Sony and Home Depot; in fact, 43% of attacks are occurring against small businesses. Of the small businesses attacked, 60% never recover after a hack and go out of business within 6 months because of a lack of cyber security.

Fortunately, there is a way that you can protect yourself against cyber crime by purchasing Cyber Insurance otherwise known as Data Breach Insurance. Front Row Insurance has recently launched a new product called Hackinsure.

  • Comprehensive Cyber Liability: Combines third-party cyber-liability (your customers/clients) and first-party (you and your business) and cyber crime expense.
  • Theft and Fraud: Data breach coverage. Protects against destruction or loss of digital data resulting from a criminal or fraudulent cyber event.
  • Business Interruption: Covers lost income and related costs when unable to operate due to a cyber security event or data loss.

  • Forensic Investigation: Covers the legal, technical or forensic services necessary to assess whether a cyber-attack has occurred, to assess the impact of the attack and to stop an attack.

Hosting an Adult Birthday Party: Do You need Insurance?

Posted by David Hamilton on Jul 30, 2018 3:22:31 PM

 

blog-1

It is good planning to consider adult birthday party insurance. No-one wants to think of what might go wrong; however, events do sometimes have to be cancelled or the unexpected happens. You may find yourself being served with a lawsuit from your friends or family for a wide range of different reasons and Front Row event insurance is there to help make sure that you do not lose money – or sleep - as a result.

6 Reasons to consider when hosting an Adult Birthday Party:
  1. Does your venue require you to provide evidence of short term event insurance? Read your rental contract before you sign it.
  2. Are you hosting the party at home? Check with your home insurance broker to see if you are covered. Parties over a certain size are most likely not covered.
  3. Have you rented furniture, a sound system or a marquee? Are you responsible to insure the equipment you have rented? Check your rental contracts.
  4. Your guests could trip on temporary carpeting or slip on a drink spill on the floor and injure themselves. Adult Birthday Party liability insurance will cover you if you are sued by providing a free lawyer to defend you and paying the judgement costs - up to the limit of the policy -  awarded to your injured guest.
  5. Do you need protection for the gifts in case they are stolen?
  6. What happens if your marquee blows away and injures other people in the park? Lawsuits would be covered with Adult Birthday liability insurance.

Most birthday venues will require you to have event insurance in place. Often the venue will tell you in their contract the short term venue liability amount required.

Adult birthday party planning should include online adult's birthday party insurance. 

Special event liability is available online with no need to talk to an insurance broker. Our cheap event policies start at $130 and certificates for your Adult Birthday venue are free.

Holiday Party Insurance: Do You Need It?

Posted by David Hamilton on Jul 30, 2018 11:49:21 AM

Throwing a party in your office or at your home or maybe you are renting a venue? Well, you’re going to need one day special event insurance.

blog post-3

WHAT IS EVENT INSURANCE? 

Short term event insurance protects you from lawsuits caused by damage to the location you are renting or lawsuits that arise if your guests are injured. Your rented venue is likely going to ask for evidence of one day liability event insurance so the venue owners are not drawn into your lawsuit.

What would I need one day event insurance for?

  • If you are hosting a Canada Day party in a municipal park, or on a municipal beach or on crown land you may need a permit that requires you to show evidence of one day event liability. Often the permit will specify the short term venue liability amount required.
  • Your guests may accidentally damage the cabana or barbecue shelter you have rented. Does the owner require you to provide evidence of short term venue liability insurance? It is suggested that you check your rental contract.
  • Are you hosting the holiday party around Christmas at your house? Check with your homeowners broker to see if you are covered. Parties over a certain size are most likely not covered especially if you serve alcohol.
  • Have you rented furniture or the sound system or a marquee for your annual summer bash? Are you responsible to insure the equipment you have rented? Take time to read the fine print in those rental contracts.
  • Hosting a company party during the holidays is a great time to bond with coworkers. Parties are fun until your staff are injured. What if your employee is forced to sue your company? Will your business office insurance cover a holiday party? Holiday party liability insurance will cover you if you are sued by providing a free lawyer to defend you and paying the judgement costs awarded to your injured guest.
  • If you are serving alcohol, try to hire a caterer to serve the drinks or purchase one day liquor liability insurance.
  • What happens if your marquee blows away and injures other people in the park? Lawsuits from a cartwheeling marquee would be covered with day insurance.

Front Row Insurance Brokers offers online holiday insurance with no need to talk to a broker. Policies start at $130 and certificates proving insurance coverage for your rented venue are provided immediately at no cost.

A quote is also free - a fast quote is available any time of the day or night.

Hack Insurance: It's not just for big businesses

Posted by Meghan Stickney on Jul 27, 2018 3:47:05 PM

Worried about a cyber attack? Here’s what you need to know.

 Blog Post July

There’s been a lot of buzz in the news lately about cyber attacks on big banks and corporations. Cyber attacks are a topic of concern not only for big businesses, and their customers, but also for the many small and mid sized businesses that make up the fabric of our economy in Canada. In fact, 43 per cent of all cyber attacks happen against small businesses, which means more Canadian consumers are at risk now than ever for having their security compromised by hackers. Also, because small businesses tend to allocate less budget and resources to privacy and security systems, they are the ideal target for hackers.

 

So, where does this leave your business? Well, for starters, you’ll want to ensure you’re protected against the costs and risks associated with a possible cyber attack. Front Row has recently launched an online Hack Insurance product, the first of its kind in Canada, to address this exact need. You can obtain coverage online starting at $300.00. And, like all of Front Row’s online products, you’ll be fully insured within a couple of minutes with no need for any meetings, paperwork, or hassle.

 

Now more than ever, it’s important you protect yourself in every possible way. Here are a few additional tips we share with all of our clients, to help guard against the risk of a cyber attack:

 

  • Developing a password strategy: Using the same password across multiple devices and accounts is the easiest way to compromise security. Once a hacker gets their hands on a password, they can easily use it to compromise employee information as well as customer data, turning a single password breach into millions of dollars in damage.
  • Avoiding collecting or storing payment information: Outsource payment processing and avoid collecting customer payment information such as credit card info on your own. Dedicated security staff have the resources and tools to protect data better than you can.
  • Educating your employees: It might seem like common sense, but it’s not always. Develop a written policy about security and privacy and make sure employees are on board and understand their responsibility to protect any confidential data. No business is “too small” for a hacker - the better prepared you are, the less at risk you are.
  • And, of course, purchasing hack insurance: 90% of small businesses do not currently have cyber insurance. You need to know that your business will be protected against any security breaches. Our new product provides this protection. You can get insured online in a couple of minutes by clicking here.

If you’re looking for tips or advice on Hack Insurance, or any other insurance needs, our team is always available to chat! You can connect with us on Facebook, Instagram or give us a call at the office nearest you!

  • Customer gets sick after ordering at the concession and blames food for lost wages.

Wedding Insurance: What is it?

Posted by David Hamilton on Jul 26, 2018 10:20:34 AM

Rings, blog post

Special event wedding insurance protects a couple if they are sued as a result of a mishap at their wedding that injures a guest or damages the venue. It also covers lost rings, presents, gowns but does not cover the missing best man.

Why Get Wedding Insurance?

Yikes:

  • Alex and Robin spend months planning their summer wedding on a relatives farm. On the big day a forest fire blocked access to the farm. With the right wedding insurance policy, the couple can postpone their wedding and receive the money they lost (less the deductible)—including money for the invitations, wedding cake, food, rented dresses and suits and non-refundable deposits for the band, flowers and other suppliers.
  • The ring is stolen from the truck of the best man’s car. Special event wedding insurance will pay for a replacement.
  • Right before walking down the aisle, the marquee tent is buffeted by wind and comes loose from its moorings and injures guests and destroys the buffet. The wedding insurance policy will provide the wedding couple with a lawyer to defend the resulting lawsuits from friends and relatives and the policy will also pay for the judgement amounts and will pay for the food and destroyed catering tables.

How Much Does Wedding Insurance Cost?

A basic one day wedding insurance policy that covers: attire, presents, deposits and venue liability usually costs anywhere between $130 and $350, depending on the amount of coverage you want.

Do You Really Need Wedding Insurance?

If you cannot afford the costs associated with a lawsuit then it is smart to transfer the risks of your wedding to an insurance policy. The cost of one day event insurance for a wedding is usually 1% or less than the cost of your wedding budget. Often the venue will not allow you access until you prove you have short term venue liability. The venue may also want to see evidence of venue alcohol liability.

When Should You Get Wedding Insurance?

As soon as you start your wedding checklist. Let's say you put a deposit on your wedding venue months in advance of your wedding date and then it is damaged in a windstorm a month before the big day. With online wedding insurance, you'll receive your deposit back.

What Does Wedding Insurance Cover?

Check our online site to learn all the ways you will be protected.

Wedding Insurance Doesn't Cover...

  • A change of heart.
  • Unused alcohol
  • Photos or video or food that was not as good as you were expecting

Planning a Bridal Shower? Consider Insuring It.

Posted by David Hamilton on Jul 23, 2018 5:00:21 PM

Hosting a shower for the bride? There are many risks associated with a wedding shower that you may not have thought of:

  • Your guests may accidentally damage the venue you have rented. Does your venue require you to provide evidence of insurance? Yikes. Check your rental contract.
  • Are you hosting the party at home? Check with your homeowners broker to see if you are covered. Parties over a certain size are most likely excluded.
  • Have you rented furniture or a sound system or a marquee? Are you responsible to insure the equipment you have rented? Check your rental contract.
  • Your guests could trip on temporary carpeting or slip on a wine spill on the floor and injure themselves. What if your friend or relative is forced to sue you? Awkward? For sure. Will your homeowners insurance cover you? Probably not. Bridal shower event liability insurance will protect you if you are sued by providing a free lawyer to defend you and paying the judgement costs awarded to your injured guest if you are found to be liable.
  • Do you need protection for the gifts in case they are stolen?
  • What happens if your marquee blows away and injures other people in the park? Lawsuits from a cartwheeling marquee would be covered with bridal insurance.

When hosting a bridal shower most banquet halls and venues such as golf and country clubs will require you to have event insurance in place. Often the hall will tell you in their contract the short term venue liability amount required.

Bridal shower planning should include online bridal shower insurance.

Available online with no need to talk to a broker. Policies start at $130 and certificates for your wedding shower venue are no cost.  A quote is also free and there is no need to talk to an insurance broker so a fast quote is available any time of the day or night.

If you will be serving alcohol at your bridal shower make sure that you request venue alcohol liability – available through our online site. Remember, as a renter you are responsible for the safety of any guests. You could be held legally responsible if people consume alcohol during your bridal shower and harm themselves or someone else. Consider how your guests will be traveling home.

Purchase peace of mind in about five minutes with no need to talk to a broker by buying online.

It’s always good planning to have bridal insurance because you never know when something unexpected may occur. Wedding shower insurance will allow you to fully enjoy your special day. https://events.frontrowinsurance.com

4 Ways to Prevent Cyber Attacks in the Creative Industry

Posted by Amanda C. Poole on Jul 19, 2018 3:48:42 PM

 

 

dnoContent creation companies such those involved in: advertising and media, film production, graphic design or animation that operate without cyber security insurance are exposed to cyber-attacks.

Any company that produces creative content usually accepts and holds sensitive information for their clients. It could be: a film production company holding scripts from writers; ad agencies holding strategic plans to formulate an ad campaign; photographers holding secret marketing campaign ideas.

Consider the following:

  1. Educating your employees. All companies can take action by raising awareness through employee training. By teaching your employees: how to spot phishing email; how to properly dispose of sensitive information and having protocols to change passwords on a regular basis, the chance of preventing a cyber-attack is increased.
  2. Purchasing Cyber Security Insurance. Whether you are Sony Pictures or operating a small two person design studio, you are never going to be truly protected without cyber insurance. Sophisticated cyber hackers are now targeting small companies as bigger companies invest in better protections. 43% of all cyber attacks are now against small businesses.
  3. Being proactive. Business owners who are tuned into the ongoing cyber risks will always come out on top because they realize this is a growing exposure. 60% of small business that are hacked never recover and go out of business in 6 months after the cyber attack.
  4. Dealing with data. People don’t think they need cyber insurance because their data is backed up, on another server or encrypted. Unfortunately, anyone dealing with data has an exposure to cyber-attacks; this doesn’t ensure cyber security. 90% of all small business have no protocols in place to protect client data. Create a plan and follow it.

Types of Cyber Crime:

Phishing – obtaining valuable information such as a credit card details or passwords by posing as a trustworthy company (e.g., a supplier) via email.

Ransomware – When a company’s computer system is infiltrated by a malicious program that encrypts its files and demands a ransom (typically in bitcoin) to return the data.

Social Engineering – Criminals impersonate an executive of a company in an email in order to obtain a money transfer or sensitive data from an unsuspecting employee. These emails are often targeted to junior employees, who may be more susceptible due to lack of training or fear of not responding to the senior executive who was impersonated.

Front Row Insurance offers solution to small business cyber conundrum

Originally printed by: Bethan Moorcraft July 18, 2018

Approximately 99.8% of Canadian companies are considered small or medium-sized businesses (SMBs), employing 64% of private sector workers in Canada. The impact of SMBs on the Canadian economy is huge, and yet many smaller businesses struggle to protect themselves adequately against financial loss.

The complex realm of cyber insurance is an area where small business understanding falls short. Statistics suggest about 43% of all cyberattacks target small businesses and yet 90% of small businesses do not have cyber insurance. This common coverage gap is a top-of-mind issue for insurers around the world, with many suggesting educational and awareness campaigns as the key fix.

But what if the cyber insurance products in the market are the real problem here? What if small business owners can’t identify a product that they think meets their needs, budget and service expectations?

Vancouver-based Front Row Insurance recently launched a cyber product aimed specifically at the small business owner. It’s a fully-automated online policy, written by Chubb, which is very low touch and has even lower limits. The starter limit is $100,000, which can be purchased at a premium of $300, and the maximum limit is $1 million. The policy can be obtained online in just two or three minutes.   

“If you look at a graphic designer that’s billing $50,000 a year from their home office, the difference between a cyber policy that costs $800 and one that costs $300 is really significant – it’s 1% of their income,” said David Hamilton, CEO and president at Front Row Insurance. “We found that really small businesses, with one to three people, understand the need for cyber coverage but don’t want to pay a lot for it. Our $300 starter premium is very palatable and provides what we feel is an excellent starter policy for small business proprietors in Canada.”

So far, responses to the policy, which launched in April, have been positive. It has drawn particular interest from younger gig economy workers who are looking to bypass intermediaries and conduct business at any time of day when they can grasp a few spare moments. The online solution includes step-by-step tips and explanation points to help customers through the buying process.

“Take the example of the graphic designer. The Graphic Designers of Canada association has around 3,700 members, every one of whom should have a cyber policy. Why? If you’re a graphic designer and you’re taking business material from a client in order to design a logo for them, and that material somehow gets exposed due to a cyber incident, your client may sue you for not protecting that material,” Hamilton explained.

If you take into account the fact that more than 50% of small businesses go out of business within six months of a cyberattack, suddenly the $300 premium for the sole graphic designer doesn’t seem like a bad investment, according to Hamilton.  

The Front Row cyber insurance policy could also be “the perfect solution” for brokers, according to Hamilton. Any broker can access the policy online and can surcharge it with a small fee. They don’t have to submit anything to an insurance carrier and they can transact business in less than 10 minutes.

The most common misconception about cyber fraud is it’s only applicable to businesses who operate high-profile websites or those who generate majority of their business income online. What’s going unsaid is that any business, using any online software program is vulnerable to the risk of cyber-hackers.

43% of all cyber-crime are against small businesses.
