Digitally stored content (on a hard drive, removable device, or the cloud) owned by an individual or a business.
"Content" can be anything from an image or document to the data you store in your databases. Like physical assets, digital assets are valuable because they’re used to conduct business. And like physical business property, digital assets can be stolen, even though the thief won't be holding the property in their hands. Cyber Liability Insurance can protect the information contained in your digital assets. It's important to realize that as technology develops, the legal definition of "digital assets" will also evolve.
