Fixated Threat cover for Media and Entertainment Clients

Social media has become an invaluable tool for celebrities, creators, and sportspeople to promote their personal brands, share content and create revenue streams. Tools such as TikTok and Youtube have allowed a new generation of stars to create huge followings from their homes and are increasingly taking market share from traditional media.

Alongside these innovations in technology comes new risks for individuals using them. The Government’s Online Safety Bill is currently going through committee in the House of Lords and will eventually bring in new protections for children and adults online.

Our capacity provider, Travelers, has partnered with their exclusive response team, SPS & Theseus Risk Management, experts in the field of threat management, to address this gap in the Crisis Management insurance policy market.

They have developed a Fixated Threat product which is designed to respond to personal security threats and provide our clients with immediate access to experts when an incident occurs.
