Cyber and Privacy Risks

Walker Wilcox is at the forefront of the dynamic and quickly changing area of cyber and privacy. Our attorneys have advised clients on cyber risks unique to various professions and industries including the legal, medical, financial and retail sectors. They are experienced in first party and third party CGL policies, policy drafting, underwriting guidelines and claims handling practices for cyber risks. Our lawyers have advised extensively on the often conflicting state and federal laws controlling the preservation of data and notice requirements in the event of a breach as well as the Beverly-Song act, various personal and advertising injury and intellectual property claims. They have coordinated with “first responder” organizations and have been appointed to act as breach coach for an insurer’s policyholders.

With experience in these areas, our lawyers have been invited to numerous speaking engagements to clients and groups of professional insurers and reinsurers in the U.S., London and Bermuda.
