Computer Forensics

Definition

Activities that take place immediately following a data breach. Such activities include but are not limited to securing an insured's information system following a data breach, determining the cause of the breach, and suggesting remedial measures to prevent future data breaches of a similar nature.

Computer forensics coverage is available within several insuring agreements commonly found in cyber and privacy policies, including privacy notification and crisis management expense, cyber-extortion, and social engineering coverages.
