Who is SafeLaw?
A Few Words About Us
Prior to the introduction of SafeLaw, cyber risk insurance policies built around an organizations unique exposures were only available to Fortune 1000 companies with the resources to customize their own cyber risk insurance coverage. We believe that all policyholders are entitled to cyber risk insurance coverage designed for the exposures of their business, so we began developing cyber risk insurance coverage and services SMEs in a handful of select industries including law firms. SafeLaw was our first program, which was launched in December 2012 and it is currently the largest cyber risk program for law firms in the United States.
What is Safelaw?
The SafeLaw team is dedicated to protecting your law firm and clients from cyber threats. Generic cyber risk policies are built to cover “privacy” breaches for every industry, but they do a poor job of addressing specialized law firm cyber exposures such as confidentiality breaches, loss of high value client data, fraudulent funds transfers, and system downtime causing loss of billable hours. Likewise, generic cyber risk policies have templated privacy breach response services that don’t contemplate breaches of attorney client privilege, ABA model rules, trust account violations, or ARDC proceedings. SafeLaw was created to protect law firms from cyber risks and it’s more than just insurance–it is a complete protection plan. SafeLaw offers loss prevention and control services that help law firms identify weaknesses in their IT security, and in the event of a claim, SafeLaw can provide immediate assistance to help your firm through a crisis.
