  • CNA Announces Lawyers' Data Breach & Network Security Endorsement

    CNA today announced it has launched a new Lawyers’ Data Breach and Network Security Endorsement. The new endorsement is available as part of CNA’s Lawyers’ Professional Liability (LPL) policy.

    “The Federal Bureau of Investigation has warned law firms that they are a major target of hackers,” said Michael Furlong, Esq., Vice President, Underwriting, CNA Lawyers’ Professional Liability Program. “CNA has responded to the increasing pressures of protecting sensitive data by creating this endorsement, which affords small law firms competitive insurance coverage for cyber-related events.”

    The CNA LPL policy provides coverage for client network damage claims up to the policy limit, as well as coverage up to $20,000 for certain costs associated with regulatory investigations arising from actual or alleged violations of privacy breach notice laws that occurred in the rendering of legal services.

    For law firms with five or fewer attorneys, the Lawyers’ Data Breach and Network Security Endorsement covers:

    Network damage claims, up to the limit specified in the endorsement, brought by non-client third parties

    Reimbursement of certain expenses incurred in response to a privacy event, including forensics, notification, privacy breach notice compliance and credit monitoring services costs, up to the limit specified in the endorsement (10 percent of the network damage claim limit liability)

    As the nation's leading insurance provider of Lawyers’ Professional Liability insurance, CNA insures more lawyers than any other insurer. Insuring more than 50,000 law firms and 155,000 lawyers nationwide, CNA is the bar-endorsed Lawyers’ Professional Liability insurer in Connecticut, Iowa, Louisiana, Massachusetts, New York and Pennsylvania.

  • CPA's and Cyber Liability

    At a recent conference for the AICPA endorsed professional liability insurance program we had a great discussion regarding cyber liability and accounting. CNA Insurance Company is rolling out upgrades to their cyber product called CPA Net Protect. Our clients will see these upgrades soon. One area of coverage that is already in CPA Net Protect that many cyber policies don't include, is coverage for liability as it relates to loss of paper documents and related personal protected information. CNA will also offer an option with more stepped up coverage soon in Nebraska and Iowa. Contact our office for more information.

  • Cyber Liability Exposure in 2017

    This year the country will see the trickle down of cyber related claims into smaller businesses. It really started in 2016 to some degree but cyber related claims, especially cyber extortion are on the uptick. Most insurance policies these days have a small amount of cyber liability insurance coverage built in to them. The question is, "Is it enough?" The answer is almost always, 'no'. While insurance companies wrangle for a share of the cyber liability insurance market, premiums have become more reasonable and applications are not as onerous. We at Harold Diers & Company recommend you read your office and professional liability policy to see what, if any, cyber liability coverage is available. If you are a client of ours, give us a call. We can help you determine if increased limits are in your best interest whether through your current insurance policy or in a stand alone policy. Don't wait until something happens to see if you have the right coverage. Contact us today!
