Cyber Liability for Professional Services firms

Cyber Liability for Professional Services firms

To ensure your business is equipped to respond rapidly and effectively in the event of a data breach and is covered for any losses arising, we have developed a range of exclusive cyber liability products specifically for professional services firms. For those firms requiring a more tailored approach, our cyber liability experts will use their knowledge of the professional services industry and cyber exposures to develop bespoke solutions.

“The failure of UK law firms to tackle online security is leaving clients increasingly vulnerable to attacks. As custodians of clients’ intellectual property and commercially sensitive information, law firms are particularly attractive to hackers.”

Seth Berman, Managing Director Stroz Freidberg

“Professional services firms, including accountants, are high risk targets as they act as “aggregators” of sensitive information and cyber risk and incidents remain a regular feature in news headlines around the world.”

Hans Allnutt, Partner and leader of cyber risk and breach response team DAC Beachcroft

“What we will be looking for is a ‘security culture’ in firms of all sizes – from the Board down to every employee. Cyber is not just an IT issue, but covers people, processes and technology. The key is: good governance, identification and protection of key assets, detection, response and recovery and information sharing, with the regulator and other parties.”

Nausicaa Delfas, Director of Specialist Supervision Financial Conduct Authority
