Cyber coverage for the unique Franchisor & Franchisee relationship

MSR FranchiseGuard Overview

Coverage offered through the Franchisor as a "sponsor" wherein the Franchisor has vicarious liability coverage for breaches that occur on franchisee systems (or for a non-electronic breach of privacy).  We offer turnkey solution for breach response which may be a significant driver for the Franchisor wanting the franchisee to buy the cover, since the Franchisor is the one whose brand will be harmed and who could end up as the deep pocket.
