Commercial Crime is on the rise and our increasing reliance on technology provides more opportunities for commercial crime to be perpetrated and go undetected for longer.
Traditional high risk, low reward crimes such as robberies and thefts, which are generally insured under a commercial combined policy, are being replaced by lower risk, higher reward crimes which exploit the same technologies that we rely on day-to-day.
Most of our lives are driven by technology which means we are more vulnerable than ever to leaving the door open to criminal activity.
Some of the examples of claims from the last 12 months that wouldn’t be covered by any other policy include:
Invoice Fraud – A letter posted to the insured party purporting to be from a supplier advising of a change of bank details – credible as it was on the same letterheaded paper as a genuine supplier of the insured party.
Banking Fraud – An insured party receives a phone call from their bank. The caller is able to recite recent transactions for the account which reassures the insured that the call is genuine. Over the course of the conversation the insured party discloses information that allows the caller access to their account and transfer of funds away.
It is important to note that a Cyber Insurance policy will not cover you for all commercial crime so it is important to take out Crime Insurance as well.
Terrorism cover is needed to protect your business from losses incurred following an incident of Terrorism.
Acts of Terrorism are commonly excluded as standard from traditional insurance covers so, if you need it, a bespoke policy will be required.
It’s common for lenders on Commercial Property to require this cover so, if either they do, or you do, COHIBL can help.
