Insurance Coverage for Cyber Liabilities and Losses

Our lawyers have helped clients navigate cyber breaches and recover substantial sums from their insurers for cyber-related liabilities and losses. The firm’s lawyers have extensive experience pursuing insurance coverage for business e-mail compromise schemes, cyber crimes, data breaches, fraudulent e-mails, invoice manipulation schemes, phishing and whaling attacks, ransomware attacks, privacy and statutory liability, and technology E&O disputes.

As thought leaders on cyber insurance, our lawyers include a Faculty Member of the Global Cyber Institute and a Certified Information Privacy Professional (CIPP-US).  Our lawyers speak on cyber insurance issues to CFOs, CISOs, in-house counsel, insurance brokers, judges, law enforcement, and risk managers, and write numerous articles on diverse cyber and privacy issues such as the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA), the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Illinois Biometric Privacy Act (BIPA), and Iranian cyber threats and the “war” exclusion.
