Directors & officers insurance
When you have vicarious liability for something, it means you could be held legally responsible for any resulting harm even though you didn't directly cause it. For example, a tech company could be held accountable for the actions of an employee.
Prior acts coverage, also known as nose coverage, offers protection from events that occurred before your existing policy was purchased, up to a particular retroactive date.
Want your insurer in your corner? A duty to defend policy makes it an insurer's obligation to provide legal defense for a lawsuit, instead of just compensating you for the claim.
A claims-made policy is a type of insurance that only covers claims while it's active. If a client lets their claims-made policy lapse before reporting an incident, the insurer won't recognize the claim.
Directors and officers insurance covers the legal costs when your business’s board members, directors, or officers are sued over decisions they made on behalf of your company.
The cost of directors and officers insurance depends on your tech business’s level of risk, as well as your policy limit and deductible.
Tail coverage is a provision that provides coverage for incidents that occurred while you had your policy, but a claim wasn't filed until after your policy's expiration date.
The retroactive date is the earliest point in time that your insurance policy will cover an incident or dispute. It's sometimes called the retro date or retroactive date of inception.
