It seems like a new data breach occurs every week. Although you already have insurance, don’t be fooled into thinking that your general liability coverage protects you from a cyber incident. Cyberinsurance can cover the destruction or theft of your confidential client information—but do you really need it? Learn the basics of cyberinsurance, what gets covered, the costs and the pros and cons of buying it. Our experts will help you:


  • Understand the difference between first and third party coverages
  • Assess the many varying aspects of cyberinsurance policies and their costs
  • Learn mistakes that law firms make when selecting cyberinsurance and filling out the application forms
  • Determine whether or not your firm needs protection for potential liability under the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation.
  • Prepare for the information that prospective insurance may want from your firm
