Privacy and Information Security Coverage
Public schools in Texas house a lot of data—about students, faculty, staff, and operations—that can be a target for cybercriminals.
The Fund’s Privacy and Information Security coverage helps members protect that data from cybersecurity incidents and recover if one occurs.
We work with Beazley, one of the world’s premiere providers of information security and data breach response services.
Starting September 1, 2020, a $250,000 combined single limit covers the most common cyber claims, including a data breach, phishing attack, or fraudulent direction incident. Members can increase the limit with an additional contribution.
Privacy and Information Security coverage is only available only with School Liability coverage and cannot be purchased on its own.

If your organization has experienced a cybersecurity incident, report a Privacy and Information Security claim immediately. If you have questions about the coverage, please call Marcy Barker, claims manager, at 855.295.8344.
