Liberty International Underwriters (LIU) has introduced a new design and data insure policy for architects and engineers.

The new enhanced architects and engineers (A&E) policy offers insurance and risk management services to help protect design firms from wrongful acts incurred, and provide professional services.

It also delivers protection from the consequences of a data breach or liability arising from the disclosure of private information as well as design-related information.

LIU architects and engineers and construction professional liability vice president Georges Pigault said: "Brokers can now bring their clients a policy that includes all of the traditional A&E professional liability coverage combined with broad data breach coverage for personally identifiable information.

"The policy gives insureds access to training, a customer website that provides risk management guidance, contract review as well as a data breach first responder who can provide initial support, and assessment following a breach."

LIU has also added five additional underwriters and claims professionals to its A&E team, and will provide services from the New York and Chicago offices.

Part of Liberty Mutual Insurance, LIU offers specialty lines products and services exclusively through the independent broker network across the globe.
