Cyber Liability

The 18th century insurance doctrine of utmost good faith does not sit easily with the modern world of e-business and risk. E-risk assessment and dispute resolution require an adept knowledge of the complexities of internet trading and staff activity. It also gives rise to new types of claims under traditional forms of cover as well as identifying new types of professions requiring liability cover.

Our work includes resolving claims and producing wordings and risk assessments for the following activities:-

  • Staff activities
  • First party risks – employee rights and privacy
  • Third party risks – IP issues
  • Defamation
  • Data protection
  • Contract formation and disputes
  • Virus transmission
  • Obscenity
  • Internet trading liabilities
