    In recent years, professional risks have significantly evolved with the regulatory environment. Professional indemnity insurance, also known as professional liability insurance or PI insurance, pays for your defence’s legal fees as well as any penalties or charges that may be imposed if it is claimed that you gave your client poor advice, services, or designs that resulted in financial loss.

    A legal firm or other service providers may benefit from professional indemnity insurance to protect them from lawsuits and pay the expense of defending themselves against allegations of mistakes, malpractice, or carelessness on their part. Broadly speaking, professional indemnity insurance must be kept in force for the full duration of any limitation term, which in the UAE is 10 years.

    What steps may businesses take to Mitigate Risk?

    Let’s delve into some of the few steps to reduce your Professional Indemnity risk, including:

    • Preventing copyright violations
      It’s ideal to produce your own intellectual property rather than copying anything from the web, therefore be cautious not to get into trouble for doing so.
    • Data encryption is a must
      Watch out for employees who bring their personal gadgets to work. When users are able to access to the Wi-Fi, laptops, phones, and tablets might carry malware that infect your network.
    • Safeguarding against data theft
      All antivirus and anti-malware software should be updated.
    • Employee misconduct
      1. You run the risk of losing client data and information or misusing intellectual property, endangering both your customers and your own firm.
      2. Any information or work data on workplace computers and other devices should be treated with extreme caution. Tell your personnel to be cautious about leaving their laptops in public areas.
      3. Ensure that employees are informed of the risks associated with downloading applications from the internet. Avoid allowing staff to install new software on workplace computers.

    Bottom Line

    Professional Indemnity presently carries substantial and sophisticated risks, and has been dubbed “the products liability of the service industry.” Businesses that consider their vulnerabilities as being product or industry focused might be amazed to learn that outsourcing, internet sales, and intellectual property difficulties might position them to professional risks.

    It takes a lot of professional inspection to detect and estimate your risks. To obtain maximum protection, firms should assess their risk from a number of perspectives and work with lawyers, economists, and actuaries.
