Data Processors Errors And Omissions Coverage

Data Processors Errors and Omissions Coverage


Data Processors Errors and Omissions Coverage — insures liability arising from errors and omissions in performing data processing for outside entities on a fee basis. Coverage is usually on a claims-made form. The policy provides no coverage for bodily injury (BI) or property damage (PD) liability, which can create a coverage gap for certain data processing applications—for example, in medical analysis whereby an error in a diagnostic computer program causes BI. Further, when one organization provides services for sister companies or its own subsidiaries, coverage would not normally apply to errors and omissions (E&O) claims by these companies or subsidiaries.
