Cyber War & Cyber Operation Clauses Updates

Following market feedback the LMA has made a number of minor changes/corrections to the Cyber War & Cyber Operation Clauses published on 18 January, including:

  • language consistency changes/minor corrections
  • removing the write-back under para 1.3 that should only have featured in LMA5567A and B (and not in LMA5565A and B, or LMA5566A and B).

Please use the versions below or download the updated clauses from the Lloyd's Wordings Repository.


All LMA model clauses are purely illustrative and are published and distributed for the guidance of Lloyd’s managing agents, brokers and other market participants. All contracting parties are free to agree to different conditions/amend the model clauses as they see fit; the LMA does not protect its intellectual property rights over model clauses. It is for underwriters to decide whether or not any contractual language is acceptable on any given risk. The clauses are available on the Lloyd’s Wordings Repository (LWR).
