Why consider business insurance?

In marketing and advertising, you need to stay ahead of the game. Creativity, dynamism, The Big Idea – they're your bread and butter. But sometimes things move too quickly. Mistakes are made, checks aren't carried out – it happens. That's where insurance can help.

A range of covers to meet your needs

Bumps in the road

Your clients pay for your out-of-the-box thinking. But what if you make a mistake? If your idea or advice doesn't work out as expected, you could face a lawsuit. If that happens, professional indemnity cover (PI) will ensure you're protected.

Protecting IP

Copyright and trademarks can sometimes catch you out. But using images, music or other IP without permission can result in hefty legal fees and compensation costs. That's why our IP cover protects you from copyright infringement claims from others, as well as infringement of your own.

Cyber security insurance

Think your data and website are secure? Then think again. More than half of SMEs suffered a security breach in 2014, with the worst costing up to £115,000 in legal fees and compensation. Our cyber security insurance ensures both your data, and your liability for client data, are protected.

Media liability insurance

Your work is designed to capture attention, but what if it oversteps the mark? If you make unfair comparisons to a competitor, or accidentally defame somebody on social media, you could be in hot water. If that happens, media liability insurance will protect you.

We're rated excellent by our customers

Excellent value at an affordable monthly cost. I have not needed use the services. But its good to know I have the insurance there to allow me to get on with my work.

James, J. Black Photography

Flexible. simple, easy, immediate. As a busy freelancer I need flexibility to potentially change the policy month by month - very handy and a feature I didn't find with other providers.

Tim, Graphic Design Freelancer

Excellent service, and really lovely people. Completely understanding of small or start up businesses, and a willingness/ability to be flexible. I'm very happy.

Lorna, Magic Penny Gifts

A super slick interface and all around great experience. Thumbs up Digital Risks! Having spoken to a number of "large" insurers, the pricing I received from Digital Risks was much more competitively priced for "like for like" cover. Highly recommended.

Jonathan, Frello
