There is a persistent issue of employee fraud across all industries. Whether it's an employee who has succumbed to temptation, a fraudulent scheme from a supplier, or even cybercriminals looking to exploit your trust, these threats can cause significant financial harm to your business. That's where crime insurance comes in.
Also known as commercial crime insurance, this policy provides a comprehensive coverage for criminal acts like employee dishonesty, computer fraud, identity theft, wire transfer fraud, or crimes committed by a third-party.
Apart from financial compensation, a crime insurance policy provides you the ability to respond promptly to criminal incidents, ensuring that your business's reputation remains intact.

They could obey fraudulent instructions to transfer your company funds to another bank account. Worse, they could collaborate with a third party to steal your company’s stock gradually over a period of time.
E-mail spoofing, phishing, theft, employee dishonesty, third-party fraud, forgery, and embezzlement impacts businesses of all types and sizes.
