  • Underwriting issues such as appropriate information to be obtained from the insured via the proposal
  • Handling claims in a practical and cost-effective way, with an emphasis on rapid response to critical incident events
  • Defending claims made under bespoke cyber insurance policies and other policies that cover losses suffered as a result of cyber, technology and IT events, including for example those involving substantial consequential losses, fraud, privacy issues and defamation
  • Claims management including the insurer’s consent to the insured appointing appropriately qualified personnel, including external personnel, to deal with a cyber event
  • Participating in multi-disciplinary crisis response teams.
