What happens if my customer withholds payment for my services when I’ve done everything to the best of my ability?

If you purchase professional indemnity protection with RiskBox, we will endeavour to provide you with solutions that include contractual cover. This means our insurers will step in to protect you when your customers sue you for breach of contract, removing the need to prove negligence

Can I be protected against people hacking into my systems, taking down my website and erasing data?

Some of our products can respond to pay for replacement or repair costs of your systems and websites. In addition they can include public relations costs and security/forensic consultancy fees. This can even be the case when the hacker is an employee of yours.

My business is heavily reliant on a telecommunications provider. I know that I’m protected if my premises are damaged, but what happens if their premises suffer a fire? Is that uninsurable?

It is insurable. Our policies can offer wide public utilities protection that responds when the premises of your telecommunications is damaged, causing a failure in their supply to you.
