Cybersecurity has become a critical aspect of business operations in the modern digital age. With the ever-increasing frequency and sophistication of cyber threats, every organization must take steps to protect itself against potential liability. To effectively mitigate this risk, businesses need a dedicated and specialized professional who can evaluate and secure the right coverage to protect their interests.

The scope of cyber liability extends beyond merely protecting insured entities and individuals from claims for damages and defense costs stemming from network breaches or wrongful dissemination of private material. It encompasses a valuable "first-party" component, providing coverage for the costs incurred by the insured entity when a breach is discovered. 

The need for cyber liability coverage is particularly acute because businesses handle or are responsible for the collection and storage of sensitive employee and customer data, whether it is kept in-house or subcontracted out to a third party. This exposure is a constant threat that requires careful management and protection.

Cyber Liability Policy Coverage:

  • Data Breach and First Party Costs: Covers defined expenses commonly associated with a data breach. This includes costs associated with data breach counsel, computer forensics analysis, privacy regulations compliance, notification and credit monitoring services for affected individuals, and public relations or crisis management services to restore a company’s reputation.
  • Network Security and Privacy Liability: Covers liability of the organization arising out of the failure of network security, including unauthorized access or unauthorized use of corporate systems, a denial of service attack, or transmission of malicious code. Internet media liability Covers infringement of copyright or trademark, invasion of privacy, libel, slander, plagiarism, or negligence arising out of the content on the organization’s website.
  • Cyber/Network Extortion: Covers monies and associated expenses arising out of a criminal extortion threat to release sensitive information or gain unauthorized access to a network.
  • Business Interruption: Covers lost income or extra expenses in the event that the network is inaccessible for an extended period of time.
  • Digital Asset Restoration Costs: Coverage covers costs incurred to replace, restore, or recollect data and/or network resources lost or destroyed resulting from unauthorized access to the system.
  • Regulatory Coverage: Provides coverage for regulatory proceedings brought by a government agency alleging the violation of any state, federal, or foreign identity theft or privacy protection legislation.
  • Cyber Terrorism Coverage: Covering financial damages an insured is legally liable for arising from an act that is certified by the Secretary of the Treasury to be an act of terrorism pursuant to the federal Terrorism Risk Insurance Act.
  • Payment Card Industry Standards Compliance Coverage: Covers damages as well as payment card loss, which the insured is legally obligated to pay resulting from non-compliance with the payment card industry data security standard.
  • Social Engineering Fraud: Social engineering fraud, or “fraudulent inducement,” is an emerging risk gaining widespread attention in the marketplace. This exposure is often addressed under a crime of fidelity policy, however, has potential overlap and implications to cyber risk. This coverage provides for indemnification of the loss of monies and securities caused by a fraudulent inducement to transfer funds to a third party purporting to be a customer or vendor.

Each party should be willing to be responsible for losses and claims to the extent that they are caused by that party’s negligence. We offer the following as a contractual provision that addresses this issue:

To the fullest extent permitted by law, Client and Consultant each agree to indemnify the other party and the other party’s officers, directors, partners, employees, and representatives, from and against losses, damages, and judgments arising from claims by third parties, including reasonable attorneys’ fees and expenses recoverable under applicable law, but only to the extent they are found to be caused by a negligent act, error, or omission of the indemnifying party or any of the indemnifying party’s officers, directors, members, partners, agents, employees, or sub consultants in the performance of services under this agreement.

If claims, losses, damages, and judgments are found to be caused by the joint or concurrent negligence of Client and Consultant, they shall be borne by each party in proportion to its negligence.
