Cyber and Data Risks

We are market leading advisors on cyber security and data risk to the insurance sector and the first choice law firm for insurers who indemnify these risks, advising both the insurers and policyholders who suffer data breach incidents and face claims in respect of data protection and information law. We provide our clients with a full service solution to address the reputational and financial impact that cyber security and data risk incidents can have.

Our Cyber & Data Risk team work collaboratively with cyber security experts to provide a coordinated approach to the legal and technical aspects of cyber risk and to offer pragmatic and focused solutions tailored to the needs of our clients and the claims that they face. We use our understanding of the specific cyber and data risk challenges faced in different sectors, jurisdictions and the way regulators apply relevant laws to provide pragmatic, commercial and risk based advice.

We regularly provide advice on international projects covering legal advice in multiple jurisdictions, collaborating with Data Risk Specialists to providing a coordinated advisory service to organisations seeking to assess, review and improve their information security. In the event that an organisation’s security is breached, we also provide comprehensive breach management solutions.

We can advise you on:

  • Pre-breach services (practices, policies and precedents)
  • Co-ordinated data breach response services
  • Advice hotline
  • Training and raising awareness of duties and liabilities resulting from European and French regulations
