Cyber Liability addresses the first- and third- party risks associated with e-commerce businesses, the Internet, networks and informational assets. Cyber Liability Insurance offers coverage protection for exposures arising out of Internet communications.

The concept of Cyber Liability takes into account first- and third- party risks. The risk category includes data storage, business interruptions, fraud and theft, extortion, crisis management, copyrights, privacy issues, virus transmission, or any other serious trouble that may be passed from first to third parties via the Web.
