Working within one of the largest and most respected insurance practices, Holmes' cyber insurance experts offer a complete solution, across coverage and litigation in both the private and public sectors.
We have wide experience handling disputes arising from cyber risks, IT and internet activity and involving hacking, defamation, privacy, breach of confidence, intellectual property, breach of contract, software defects, business interruption, data protection and professional liability. Data protection breaches and cyber-attacks can affect any modern business and its supply chain, so businesses are rightly looking at what cover is available. For insurers, there is the added risk that cyber exposures are often hidden within existing policy wordings, presenting challenges for insurers intending to insure other perils. Acting for major insurers and FTSE-listed technology companies, we combine industry insight, commercial awareness, and legal excellence. Our expertise includes defending claims against IT professionals and computer software suppliers, advising on coverage disputes, policy drafting and advisory work and advising on data protection issues for insurers and policyholders. We understand the importance of adding value through education and resources. We provide regular training sessions on technology, media / telecoms and cyber issues to insurers, loss adjusters, brokers and policyholders wanting to learn more about these areas.
