It’s a risky world these days, and every business, large or small, needs to develop a strategy to manage those risks. Customers who have come to depend on your goods and services should know that you are protecting yourself against business interruptions, especially those that may happen as the result of criminal activity. The best way to provide them with the reassurance they need is through commercial crime insurance.
There are two major ways that your business will benefit from having a well-thought-out insurance plan.
- Loss Recovery – The first is the one most people think of: being covered for losses. In criminal activities, these losses may be small, such as petty theft, but they could also be huge, as in the case of securities fraud. The protection you will receive from commercial crime insurance should cover both ends of the loss spectrum.
- Loss Prevention – The second major benefit is the risk assessment that you will do with your insurance company. A good, thorough look at your environment and business practices is likely to turn up all kinds of things that you can do to mitigate your risk. Just changing the way employees handle cash, for example, can lead to many fewer opportunities for staff dishonesty. Preventing crime from happening in the first place is a smart business move.
