Is my IT consultant liable for my data security?

Your IT consultant can be liable for your data security, and if you think a breach was directly caused by your IT consultant's negligence, you may have grounds to collect damages. You'll want to make sure that any IT companies you work with have Errors and Omissions Insurance. This insurance coverage insures your contractor's work. If you choose to sue them, their insurance provider pays the damages they owe you. However, if you have adequate Cyber Liability Insurance, you will likely have all the funds you need to recover from a data breach without having to enter litigation.
