Steve Haase Wins Advisen Cyber Risk Industry Legend Award

We are pleased to announce that INSUREtrust President Steve Haase has won the prestigious Advisen Cyber Risk Industry Legend Award honoring his vision and ongoing contributions to the cyber risk sector.

Steve would like to thank all of his supporters and those who took the time to vote for him:

“I couldn’t have won this without the help of many people in the insurance industry.  I sincerely appreciate all of you who cast ballots for me.

Thank you!”

We were first…
In April 1997, INSUREtrust was the first company in the world to successfully design and market an Internet-specific insurance policy. The policy was called Internet Security Liability Policy.

Claims Examples

  • A hacker accessed the financial aid database of a small university, which required a forensic audit to determine that 18,000 records had been compromised.  Forensic, notification, call center, and credit monitoring costs exceeded $120,000.
  • A hacker installed malware in the system of a small laboratory, then demanded that funds be transferred to an off-shore account.  Computer forensics to find and disable the malware, secure all servers, and change all encryption keys exceeded $10,000.
  • A photographer sued a real estate services firm in federal court for using photographs without permission.  The real estate services firm paid approximate defense and settlement costs of $600,000.

Simplifying Insurance for Emerging Risks

Our mission is to simplify insurance for emerging risks. Since launching the first cyber liability policy in 1997, including 3rd and 1st party coverage, we have developed a very efficient process for our agents. It is not unusual for an agent to contact us and say “I need information NOW!” or “I need a quote NOW.” We can accommodate either scenario.
