Markel Debuts InfoPro, New IT Professional Liability Policy Form

RICHMOND, Va., June 5, 2009 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Markel Corporation announced the release of its new InfoPro policy form targeted to information technology professionals. InfoPro offers many attractive, new features, which the company expects to be very competitive in the marketplace.

"Our new coverage features target the type of exposures an IT professional is most likely to need to protect against, and we believe our new form will be a great fit for all types of IT pros," said Michael Carr, Markel's director of IT Professional & Data Security. According to Carr, some of InfoPro's most desirable coverage highlights include the following:

    --  Professional liability coverage that automatically applies to broadly
        defined technology services, while retaining the ability to schedule
        additional services tailored to the insured's business.

    --  Core coverage that includes Markel's DataBreach(SM) and Privacy
        Liability, which further extends to unauthorized access to the named
        insured's system, as well as to client systems arising out of the
        insured's professional services.

    --  No sub-limit on the defense of regulatory claims arising out of an
        "unauthorized access."

    --  Deductible credit for claims settled via mediation.

    --  A Claims Made form, rather than Claims Made & Reported.

    --  First dollar Supplementary Payments coverage, in addition to the
        aggregate for Breach Mitigation (notification, voluntary credit
        monitoring & public relations).

    --  Optional first party coverage for data breach loss to insured. Covers
        insured's own expenses to recover from an unauthorized access.

    --  Optional electronic media liability coverage for the insured's
        software, the content of the insured's web site and web content
        provided to clients as part of the insured's professional services.
