Risk analysis for employees - CIA Insurance and Risk Management helps entrepreneurs take control of their business and their future by addressing key issues, including employee benefits, personnel hiring and retention, operations and structure, and financial management.
Manage Workplace Injuries - This coverage provides prompt payment of wage-loss benefits and medical treatment to the employee’s “exclusive remedy” to offset the paid and lost time of a work-related injury or illness. Employers who may be exempt can find that voluntarily providing workers’ compensation benefits is the best way to protect workers and the business against the cost of work-related injuries.
EPLI - is a liability policy designed to cover wrongful acts arising from the employment process. All EPLI insurance policies are different so it's important that you understand how coverage can vary from policy to policy.
Business Risk Analysis - Designed to combine protection from all major property and liability risks, including business property, business interruption, and liability.

Auto/fleet insurance - Commercial auto insurance with a wide variety of coverages for vehicles and drivers. This policy also covers liability for the company of hired or non-owned vehicles while being used by a representative of the company.
Promoting Your Business

Special event policies - If you are having a public event whether a wedding and reception or a festival you need the protection of Special Event Insurance. Our Event Liability Insurance is designed to protect the policyholder against lawsuits, claims made related to bodily injury of others, and property damage to the rented premise. We provide Special Event Liability Insurance through our Commercial General Liability (CGL) policy, often called Spectator or Public Liability Insurance, which satisfies the requirements of most rental locations.
Earning Larger Contracts
- Umbrella policies (Higher liability requirements)

- Key Man insurance
Key Man insurance - Key person insurance is simply life insurance on the key person in a business. In a small business, this is usually the owner, the founders or perhaps a key employee or two. These are the people who are crucial to a business--the ones whose absence would sink the company. You definitely need to consider key person insurance on those people.

Ensure the business you built is covered for unforeseen circumstances.
