Bethlehem, PA – Brown & Brown Insurance of Lehigh Valley is offering an exclusive Cyber Liability Insurance product to Health & Human Services Organizations. In 2018 there were 351,936 cyber crime complaints and over $2.7 billion in losses. These staggering statistics are directly from an FBI 2018 Internet Crime Report.
When compared to major competitors in the marketplace, Brown & Brown of Lehigh Valley’s exclusive Coalition Cyber Liability Insurance has been able to offer more aggressive pricing, lower deductibles, and the most extensive coverage options. The product provides 24-hour customer service from in-house IT security professionals, not just insurance personnel, and an evidence-based cyber vulnerability assessment to give customers significant insight to overall preparedness by identifying critical security alerts and areas that could potentially be targeted and compromised.
