CYBERSECURITY INSURANCE

More businesses are exploring cyber liability coverage as a way to mitigate the fallout from a data or security breach. Our insurance litigators have experience with these unique policies, which vary widely from standard liability insurance. We help companies assess their risk profile for a cybersecurity event and review the different policies available for their respective industries. Many cyber liability policies provide coverage for external attacks and internal breaches, such as when an employee loses a mobile device containing confidential customer information.

In reviewing potential policies, our attorneys will also help you assess related requirements and the costs they could incur in the event of a breach. For example, many cyber liability policies shift reporting, credit-monitoring, and related financial losses to the insurance carrier but require policy holders to issue mandatory notices in the wake of a breach. Our attorneys can help businesses sort through policy requirements to determine if cybersecurity insurance is a worthwhile investment.
