10 Reasons To Get SafeLaw

Cyber protection from Alta Pro.

Around one-third of US law firms have cyber liability insurance, up from only 17 percent just five years ago, according to the ABA.

And that percentage will likely grow in the coming months as lawyers struggle with remote work, health and safety concerns, and economic uncertainty – all of which increase the risk of a cyber incident.

Law firms are prime targets for cyber criminals. They know lawyers are entrusted with privileged communications, confidential records, intellectual property, and critical business insights. A cyber incident can result in business interruption, lost clients, reputational damage, regulatory penalties, and lawsuits.

Unfortunately, many firms lack the technical controls to protect and secure their data.

Alta Pro offers two industry-leading, competitively-priced cyber liability products: “SafeLaw” and “CyberProtect.” SafeLaw is for any size law firm, insured with any carrier, and offers the most 1st and 3rd party coverage. CyberProtect is an exclusive cyber liability program available only to Wesco insureds for solo firms up to five member firms.

Stay a step ahead of the cyber criminals by attending our FREE, one-hour CLE webinar “Chapter 4: Cyber Security Best Practices for your Law Firm in 2021” on March 23. The presenters are digital forensics specialist Nathan Little, of Tetra Defense, who will demonstrate simple, commonsense ways to stay safe, and attorney James Davidson – a nationally-recognized expert on cyber liability who defends lawyers and firms in malpractice cases. Register here.
