Directors and officers insurance (D&O) is a type of liability insurance that covers individuals for claims made against them while serving on a board of directors and/or as an officer. This type of policy can be written to cover directors and officers of for-profit businesses, privately held firms, not-for-profit organizations and educational institutions.

While business insurance policies by definition provide coverage for the business itself, individual company officers may still be personally exposed to financial losses resulting from a lawsuit. To protect your company’s leadership, you may want to consider purchasing directors and officers (D&O) liability insurance.
