We can also provide coverage for your production machinery at your request.

Privacy breaches can impact businesses of all sizes. If your operation’s sensitive, protected or confidential data is intentionally or unintentionally released, lost or exposed, you may have to spend significant time and money resolving the situation and restoring your credibility and reputation.
Consider what you would do in the event of a privacy breach impacting:
- Employee information: Sensitive or personal data including background checks, credit related information and employee records, current or past employees and staffing companies.
- Cargo information related to:
- GPS tracking information: This data can be used to carry out crimes such as theft of cargo. Truck drivers are also vulnerable since this information can show how far away they are from home, exposing them to the risk of a theft taking place at their property.
- Shared information: Driver and load information is available through various cargo shipping organizations which can track personal driver information, such as background check data, credit information, employee records including a home address. This sensitive data coupled with the knowing a driver’s location, creates a potential risk of theft of the cargo, burglary at driver’s home or both.
If a privacy breach were to impact your business today, are you confident you have the coverage you need to pay for the response expenses and support services necessary to help you restore your customers’ trust and the reputation of your business?
Make sure you’re protected. Ask your broker about adding Aviva’s Privacy Breach coverage to complement your Commercial General Liability policy.
