Crime is a serious threat to businesses. Whether you are victimized by internal or external acts of crime, the business owner or manager has to assume the responsibility for money, data, or properties that were stolen.
Crime Insurance can protect your business from both first party risks and third party accusations of crime arising from your business. First party coverage is insurance for direct losses to the business from a covered criminal act. Third party coverage is for accusations from others that a criminal act related to your business caused a loss. A common circumstance is an accusation of theft by your employee of another’s property.
A commercial crime insurance policy typically provides several different types of crime coverage, such as: employee dishonesty coverage; forgery or alteration coverage; computer fraud coverage; funds transfer fraud coverage; kidnap, ransom, or extortion coverage; money and securities coverage; and money orders and counterfeit money coverage.
