Welcome to Brooklyn

Welcome to Brooklyn , a market-leading underwriting agency for retail insurance brokers in Australia.


IT Insurance

Product Description:

Information Technology companies are facing increasing liability challenges and threats. Even the best managed IT companies can find themselves embroiled in legal action from ever demanding customers as the reliance on the products and services provided by IT companies increases.

These liability challenges and threats have increased due to a combination of the following attributes:

  • Ever increasing need to speed product to market;
  • Increased competition in key product and service markets;
  • Increasing customer expectation;
  • The need to export products and services to foreign markets;

These threats and challenges are exacerbated by the following:

  • Increased outsourcing of systems and data;
  • Increase in fixed price long terms contracts;
  • Ever increasing consumer protection legislation.

IT companies can face financial loss threats from the following sources:

  • Due to systems not being delivered within contractual time frames;
  • Due to systems not performing as intended;
  • Arising from software development risk even when the contract has not been completed;
  • Arising from a breach of a third parties Intellectual Property Rights such as copyright, trademark or register design;
  • Arising from loss of data, libel and slander and sub contractors acts.
