Computer consultant insurance protects yourself and your business should an incident or issue occur. As a consultant that is often responsible for individuals’ personal data and even expensive computer equipment, having suitable insurance is a must to cover you for an incident for which you may be liable.

As with any consultancy job, there are risks attached to working as a computer consultant. This includes fallout and financial losses as a result of accidental mistakes or errors that occur during your work.
