Effective April 1, 2022 upon renewal, the Cyber Limited Exclusion and Data Exclusion Endorsement is added to professional liability policies.
Pro-Demnity continuously reviews our products and policy wordings, assessing against market needs to provide professional liability protections and coverages most relevant to architecture practice. As a result, effective April 1, 2022, upon renewal, the Cyber Limited Exclusion and Data Exclusion Endorsement will be added to professional liability policies, and the Computer Network Security Liability Extension Endorsement is removed.
In broad terms, the Cyber Limited Exclusion and Data Exclusion Endorsement stipulates that any actual or alleged losses related to cyber acts, incidents, data breaches, hacking, ransomware, or computer system losses etc.,[i] are not a covered benefit within professional liability insurance policies. It further clarifies our stance on cyber coverage and removes potential confusion with respect to cyber coverage typically found in General Commercial or Business Insurance policies. For comprehensive cyber insurance coverage related to your business, please speak with your broker or agent.
