We have a deep understanding of cyber risk insurance and the issues that have emerged under liability policies in relation to computer hacking and loss of data.
We consistently monitor international, domestic and local cybercrime cases in this emerging area of the law.
Our experience includes:
- drafting cyber insurance policies, cyber extensions and/or cyber endorsements to existing policies
- drafting protocols or guidelines for insurers to provide to insureds on how to manage personal data and confidential information and how to best avoid a cyber-attack or breach
- working with brokers to capture all relevant information about the businesses of the insureds and to assist with understanding the extent of cyber cover and the applicability of the cover to the insured’s business
- coordinating multidisciplinary responses to a breach or attack under the protection of legal professional privilege – this includes working with public relations and media experts to manage immediate crises, identifying and retaining appropriate IT experts, forensic investigators accountants and other professionals.
