Whether you are looking for an admitted or surplus lines, Coalition is committed to helping you solve cyber risk.  However, there are key differences between the two products which we lay out below.

The admitted product includes:

  • Breach Response Services - these are Coalition's risk mitigation services provided to you when you're facing an incident or potential incident.  This is offered on all quotes, outside the limits, and with $0 retention.
  • Coverage for privacy action brought against you by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).  Note that this is available by endorsement on our surplus lines product but built into the base form on our admitted product.

The surplus lines product includes:

  • Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) retention reduction (more info)
  • Invoice manipulation (more info)
  • Duty to cooperate endorsement (more info)
  • Your obligations as an insured endorsement (more info)
  • Technology errors & omissions coverage (selectable)

We offer our surplus lines product across the US.  Our admitted product is admitted in 37 states and D.C. - take a look at our coverage map to see if admitted coverage is available in your state.

Note the following coverage is not yet available for our admitted product in Missouri.  If you have a client in Missouri and would like this coverage, they are available with our surplus lines product:

  • Breach response separate limits
  • Reputational harm loss
  • Service fraud

  • Court attendance costs
  • GDPR enhancement

No matter what you decide, Coalition remains you and your dedicated clients' risk management partner.  Whether purchasing an admitted or surplus lines product, our risk mitigation apps, tools, and services will be at your disposal.
