New York, NY

Starr Companies has launched CYBER AND TERROR RESPONSE, a new insurance offering that provides comprehensive coverage for the losses associated with Cyber Attacks, Workplace Violence, Political Violence, and acts of Terrorism. Designed with middle-market businesses in mind, the coverage enhances general liability and/or property policies by covering security-related perils that severely impact, interrupt, and/or damage businesses’ physical locations, operations, and employees.

“We recognize that, after a horrific event, our clients have a need to restore operations as soon as possible,” says Alex Pittignano, Senior Vice President, Starr Surplus Lines. “By providing a policy that complements existing general liability and property policies, Starr’s clients can rest assured that coverage and services are available when they are needed most. And, as with all of our Crisis Management Products, CYBER AND TERROR RESPONSE clients will have access to a 24-hour hotline providing immediate access to security and crisis communication experts”

CYBER AND TERROR RESPONSE provides a blend of 1st party property damage, business interruption, and coverage for claims for 3rd party damage coverage. In addition, CYBER AND TERROR RESPONSE also provides coordination services including post-event crisis counseling and medical care; temporary relocation expenses; loss of life benefit; privacy crisis expenses; defense costs; and public relations and advisory services.
