Cyber Liability

Dolden is a leader in the areas of computer network security and personal data breach litigation and related insurance issues. The firm has been a pioneer in developing “made in Canada” cyber policy wordings.  Over the past six years the firm has addressed a wide range of coverage and defence matters involving privacy and data breach, including PIPEDA exposures, the tort of intrusion on seclusion, statutory claims under the provincial Privacy Acts, and proceedings before various Canadian privacy commissioners.  Dolden acts as breach coach for several national insurers’ cyber programs.

Our expertise covers pre-breach risk assessment, post-breach notification to regulators and affected individuals, negotiations with Privacy Commissioners, addressing CASL claims before CRTC, coverage disputes regarding obligations under various policy types for cyber breach events, cross border issues in relation to cyber claims, and defence of privacy breach and CASL (Canada’s anti-spam legislation) breach litigation, including class actions.
