Don't Assume No Coverage For GDPR

Ready or not, GDPR, the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation, has arrived. And many are not ready: as recently as April 2018 it was reported that only 5% of likely affected companies were prepared to meet the stringent GDPR standards — which means they may have GDPR losses.

Insurance coverage is expected to be important in dealing with these losses. While considerations of GDPR liability often focus on the potentially large penalties, the losses take other forms as well, and raise important insurance considerations.

Not All GDPR Losses Are Fines

One example of a potentially large loss imposed by GDPR rules is the cost of notifying persons whose data you hold when there is a suspicion of a breach. While some states in the U.S. require notification to be sent when there is a reasonable suspicion due to a breach that consumer data may have been compromised, GDPR goes further. And, of course, GDPR applies to everyone in the EU. Just measuring the extent of required notification could prove cumbersome.
