Lawyers’ Insurance Programme: 2021-2022 Cyber Coverage Policy Now Available
You can now request the 2021-2022 Cyber Coverage Policy via email at email@example.com.
We encourage members and firms to review and consider all of the insurance policy’s terms and conditions. We also want to remind you of one exclusion in particular:
[The Insurer] shall not be liable for any claim directly or indirectly arising out of:
- The failure of the…Law Society Member to:
- Back-up copies of data at least weekly, to store such back-up copies of data offsite, and to test the back-ups annually;
- Update the Law Society Member computer network with new protection patches, anti-virus software, and anti-spyware within two weeks of critical patches being released; and
- Install, maintain, and actively monitor, within reasonable business practices, firewalls and endpoint protection on their computer network.
