Helpful Cyber Risk Management Resources for Protecting Your Florida Law Practice
There is no greater threat facing Florida lawyers today than that of cyber crime. Bad actors are actively working to compromise your practice and your clients. If you don’t do what it takes to keep them out, they will invade your systems, divert your funds, infiltrate your accounts, lock you of your devices, hold you ransom, and subject you to costly errors & omissions claims.
Knowledge and prevention are key. That’s where this Cyber Security Risk Management Resource Center comes in. Florida Lawyers Mutual is pleased to make the following resources available cost-free to all members of The Florida Bar!

Law firms should have adequate cyber liability insurance in place. Lawyers’ Errors & Omissions policies generally do not provide coverage for cyber liability insurance. However, Florida Lawyers Mutual automatically attaches a Tokio Marine HCC cyber liability endorsement (subject to terms and limits) to every E&O policy, with options available for increased limits for qualifying applicants.
