Fighting the good fight

We understand insurers require privacy and data security, breach response, policy wording, and covering and monitoring roles.  We have extensive experience in these areas and help insurers, their insureds and brokers across the privacy and cybersecurity lifecycle.

We have extensive expertise in cyber policy drafting (including personal and company policies), coverage (including serving as monitoring counsel, and overseeing the work of breach counsel regarding cost and time management and data collection), assisting insurers and insureds to navigate breach incident and crisis response, breach coaching, subrogation and recovery options.  We work with you to restore business functionality in a time effective manner. We have presented extensively on cyber insurance and have contributed to thought leadership in this space, to help you reinforce your cybersecurity strategy.

We are highly experienced in advising our clients on cyber issues involving privacy notification and notifiable data breaches.

We have engaged in risk mitigation with both insureds and insurers on “Lifecycle Issues” (through training, incident response triage, and coordinating service provider support during times of breach) to assist our clients in building their cyber resilience and responsiveness. The team also manages cyber breach claims efficiently and provides relevant value-added services to our clients.

We can tap into our strong relationships with forensic investigation service providers and public relations consultants, who work alongside our team to help manage the fast-moving pace of cyber breach matters.  We also offer a ‘24/7 hotline service’ as an option for incident responses, which allows us to manage your matter promptly and efficiently.

Given the potential for a cyber claim to have wide-reaching international regulatory exposure, we can assist in a number of key jurisdictions, leveraging our affiliated members from the Global Insurance Law Connect network.
