getGuard™ Insurance Seeks Agents for New Program for Businesses Hit By Identity Fraud

May 23, 2007

Almost every business – from retail to healthcare to professional services – handles personal information such as credit card numbers, social security numbers, and healthcare records. Many businesses think they have insurance coverage for privacy liability. But, many traditional insurance policies do not cover identify theft that occurs as a result of a business not handling private information properly.

With an industry survey reporting that 69% of companies have serious leaks of confidential business and personal customer information, getGuard Insurance has launched a new insurance program to protect businesses from lawsuits and expenses due to a privacy breach or identity theft.

getGuard is seeking new agents nationwide to offer this coverage. Agents can register online at or call Ken Kukral at 866-466-2003.

“Every business organization needs privacy protection because every business is vulnerable. That means all of your agency’s business clients should consider getGuard because it covers the majority of the expenses to address these losses. This market is a tremendous opportunity to reach new clients and help retain existing ones,” says getGuard president Marc Pender.

getGuard is an affordable privacy liability insurance that covers the unintentional delivery of private and confidential data. It provides liability coverage if a business accidentally releases personal or private information to anyone who should not receive it. This policy includes coverage for information released in paper or electronic format. It also covers the expenses associated with notifying your clients and customers of any personal data breach. Such notifications are now required by most states and some federal laws.
