The program includes limits of liability options, which range from $1,000,000 to $10,000,000 per claim and include deductibles from $2,500 to $10,000 per claim. MSPAlliance members who have completed the Unified Certification Standard (UCS) are also eligible for premium discounts.

"This new program will bring low cost, high quality insurance to our members who are in need of such risk mitigation products as they protect their customers from cyber threats," said Charles Weaver, CEO of MSPAlliance.
