Body
SUMMARY & BACKGROUND:
The city maintains a blanket "all-risk" cyber liability insurance policy covering its cyber network. Chubb Insurance Company has provided insurance coverage for the city for the past four years. Since the last renewal in April 2020, the Hylant Group has priced the market and negotiated a more reasonable rate charged to the City for the same insurance coverage with Coalition Insurance Solutions, Inc.; offering the same coverage limits, as well as maintaining the lower deductible for the same cyber liability insurance coverage. As a direct result, Coalition Insurance Solutions, Inc. offers the maximum and best coverage, inspection and protection support at the most reasonable and fair premium cost.

This commitment, from the City to Coalition Insurance Solutions, Inc., and from Coalition Insurance Solutions, Inc. to the City, serves as the basis for the most favorable outcome both in coverage and in working with the City to further develop and implement loss prevention measures.
