Seminars

Cyber security is one of the most significant risks facing businesses today. Particularly if your reputation is built on trust and you frequently deal with sensitive client data.

Cyber-crime could have a huge impact on your bottom line by driving up costs and impacting on revenue.

Aon’s 2016 Cyber Security Seminars took place from 16 May – 30 June 2016 and covered key business issues on cyber-crime including:

  • Current Cyber threat and recent claims trends
  • Reputational damage associated with Cyber Crime
  • Understanding the risks and the consequences
  • Risk management essentials
  • The role of insurance in risk management and mitigation

Each seminar included an opportunity to attend an event afterwards and network with other like-minded individuals – Whether you stepped back in time at the Leeds City Museum, took the Manchester United stadium tour, had the drive of your live at Mercedes Benz World or simply enjoyed drinks and canapés at the iconic Leadenhall Building (The Cheese Grater) in the heart of London. Each seminar was as interesting and exciting as the last.

Watch this space for our up and coming 2017 seminars.

FAQs

Frequently asked questions about solicitors Professional Indemnity insurance

What is Professional Indemnity insurance?

Professional Indemnity insurance provides cover should a third party suffer a financial loss as a result of your professional error, omission or negligence. 

What limit of indemnity do I need?

We recommend you check the Law Society guidelines. It is always good business practice to also review your contracts both pending and current to assess whether your limit of indemnity is sufficient. 

Will my policy cover my past work?

The policies we arrange are fully retro-active providing cover retrospectively. 

Would my policy respond if I have a claim for work I undertook 3 years ago before I moved to Aon?

Professional Indemnity insurance is constructed on a claims made basis and therefore it is the policy in force when the claim is made, which would respond regardless of when the work was undertaken, subject to policy terms and conditions

What our clients say

“Aon have looked after Battens non professional indemnity insurance for some time and from October last have also been dealing with our PI insurance. In both cases the service and the claims support we have received has been superb.

Our primary contact throughout has been Marco D’Ovidio. I cannot speak highly enough of the quality of Marco’s advice, his attention to detail and his speed of response which really is second to none.”
