Crime insurance protects companies from losses sustained from a first party crime. A first party crime is one committed by a person within a company, usually an employee. Common claims include employee dishonesty, computer fraud and embezzlement.
Most crime-related claims are not covered by typical property insurance policies, so crime insurance coverage is essential to protect companies from crime-related loss.
Fraud claims are on the rise. According to the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, the average U.S. business can expect to lose 6% of its annual revenue to losses involving employees. Crime insurance can help protect against that loss.
