A commercial general liability policy typically only covers bodily injury and property damage to a third party. This leaves your technology company vulnerable to certain types of claims. 

If you are providing a service for a fee, then you need technology errors and omissions insurance (E&O or professional liability).

Here's a quick example - you recommend that a client redesign their network and implement new technologies.

Unfortunately, this new integration is not suited to work in their current environment and important software they use. The result is lost time and profit for their business. They sue you for financial damages as a result of your recommendation. 

This is not the only technology errors and omissions claim example we can think of, and is certainly not the only risk that technology professionals face.
