Businesses are vulnerable to unlawful acts affecting their operations, regardless of their size and industry. Even with property security protocols, trainings and employee vetting, business-related crimes can still occur. Commercial property insurance may not offer complete coverage for these incidents, so it’s essential to ensure your operation is carrying an adequate amount of commercial crime insurance.
