You can now request the 2021-2022 Cyber Coverage Policy via email at

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.

If you would like to purchase additional, dedicated cyber insurance for your firm, CLIA offers a standalone cyber program with limits of up to $2,000,000 across all five cyber coverages. You can contact CLIA via email at or the general commercial insurance market.

As a reminder, if you are submitting a notice  of a claim, you should contact both CLIA by email at and call 1-833-383-1488 as set out in Cyber Claim Reporting – The Law Society of Newfoundland and Labrador.
