Partner Emmanuèle Lutfalla, Associates Deborah Azerraf and Alice Decramer, and Eva Biezunski discuss how the Covid-19 pandemic, and the surge in cyber-attacks, on this occasion represent a good opportunity to reflect on cyber insurance products, in Le Monde du Droit.

The COVID-19 pandemic quickly proved to be a favourable time for cyber attacks due to the increased exposure of businesses. This situation revives the discussions relating to both the insurance coverage for cyber risk but also the cyber insurance product as such.

The article covers the surge in cyber-attacks during Covid-19 as well as the impact of the pandemic on cyber insurance.
