Cyber Insurance

We get it. Your law firm is a small business. What’s the risk? Unfortunately, nearly half of all cyber attacks are against small businesses, which house sensitive transactional and client data.

With the sudden increase in remote workers due to the COVID-19 pandemic, law firms are now recognizing the increased amount of cyber security threats. Some major vulnerabilities can include:

Working from home opens up additional vectors for cyber attacks, such as unsecured workstations and personal devices, unsecured data transmissions and weak enforcement of
risk-mitigating policies.

Social engineering attackers gain information, money, or access to protected systems by tricking legitimate users. This can include cyber criminals posing as corporate help-desk teams to ask workers for security credentials.

Websites with weak security can allow attackers to infiltrate your website to install malicious software that will steal a user’s confidential data such as stored credit card information.

AHERN Insurance Brokerage offers State Bar of Arizona members access to a variety of comprehensive and competitive Cyber insurance programs, many of which offer coverage enhancements specific to the legal community.

Leveraging affordable and comprehensive cyber coverage allows law firms like yours to better detect, mitigate, and eliminate risk. Obtaining a no-obligation quote is quick and easy! Click on the link below to get started.
