Liability as a Drupal Developer

Good day, all:

My company has been a provider of "traditional" software development for the past 30 years. However, Drupal development - or any other CMS work - has not been a focus of the company, despite the fact that we have extensive coding resources both in-house and out, we manage a significant array of servers in our Orlando data center, and we have a number of local clients (potential Drupal prospects) to whom we provide IT support services.
