Today’s Insurance Climate
Automation and technology is driving continued growth for Minnesota manufacturing. As a result, the climate for insurance is relatively positive. An area of concern for owners is the risk of protecting company assets with the increased dependency on technology. The implications of potential data loss and breach as well as the potential of exposure resulting from a variety of cyber crimes can easily result in expensive lawsuits and loss of customer goodwill. CBIZ works with 30 insurance companies to craft specialized manufacturing coverages against insurable risks, including cyber. In today’s climate, having an agency that has access to such a broad base of insurance carriers, that is known for superior negotiating skills, that specializes in understanding the evolving risks, and has a 30 year history of success, may be the smartest protection you can provide your company.
