Businesses protected from financial loss with professional liability insurance
A separate coverage can be added to existing insurance policies that protects professionals in the event of a client's claim that they have suffered a financial loss as the result of an error or omission that was committed by a company while performing and delivering their professional services.
New insurance coverage protects against identity theft
Identity theft is a costly crime for society and for the individual involved. CPAs, who deal with personal information and whose reputation is built on trust, need to take special care to protect their clients' information and also be able to repair the damage if information is somehow compromised.
