Insurance designed for the security and protection industry

Custom designed policies providing coverage for failure to perform and errors and omissions.

Commercial general liability

Commercial general liability insurance protects businesses from legal liability with comprehensive coverage crafted to meet the specific needs of an array of businesses.

Professional liability (E&O)

The professional liability product is designed to protect professionals whose business decisions may lead to errors, omissions, neglect or breach of duty while providing services resulting in third party claims.

Umbrella and excess liability

Excess and umbrella liability insurance provides an additional layer of protection over primary insurance coverage and can be tailored to meet the needs of businesses of any size or complexity.

Why is insurance for the security and protection industry important?

Standard liability policies don't meet the unique needs of the security and protection industry. Markel Canada is a leading insurer for security and protection professionals with more experience, custom wordings, and in-depth knowledge of the needs of the private security industry.
