PHILADELPHIA--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--ACE USA, the U.S.-based retail operating division of the
ACE Group, today announced new enhancements to its industry-leading privacy protection and network liability
protection policies. In ACE’s continuing effort to help policyholders mitigate and manage the rising expense of data
breaches, the company has introduced an integrated and complementary suite of independent data breach specialists
and comprehensive coverages. ACE Professional Risk’s Data Breach Team, combined with the Data Breach Team
Endorsement, bridges the gap between risk transfer and purchased loss control, creating a comprehensive risk
management program for privacy, data breach and network security risk.
The ACE DigiTech® and ACE Privacy Protection® policies, which provide privacy, network security, and media
liability coverage for all industries, now include access to ACE’s Data Breach Team, a pool of independent third-
party professional service providers who have the capabilities and experience to help organizations and businesses
execute their data breach response. ACE policyholders now have access and can be referred to a panel of legal,
computer forensic, notification, call center, public relations, crisis communications, fraud consultation, credit
monitoring, and identity restoration firms with a specific focus on data breach response, with the benefit of
discounted loss control service fees for such ACE policyholders.
“As more of our policyholders experienced data breaches,” said Toby Merrill, Vice President, ACE Professional
Risk, “it became clear that they needed additional guidance locating qualified vendors to deal with these events.
Some companies simply do not have the bandwidth to handle the time-consuming process of developing their own
data breach response team with pre-negotiated rates. Whe
