Provides professional liability coverage for computer software designers,
analysts, and consultants to cover errors in programs or in systems design.
This coverage is often written as part of a package policy arranged for computer
firms. The policies, which are provided on a claims-made basis, cover financial
losses that result from an insured's negligence. For example, coverage would
apply if a software designer's e-commerce program contained a security glitch
that allowed hackers to purchase goods with expired credit cards.
