What Insurance?

9872531073?profile=RESIZE_400x It is never easy to negotiate with criminals, especially in the cyber-world we live in.  Organizations that fall victim to a ransomware attack should never let the cyber criminals know they have cyber insurance, because if the attackers know that their victim holds an insurance policy, they are more likely to outright demand the ransom payment in full.  Criminals are smart and…

  • In another attempt to disrupt the maritime supply chain, Bureau Veritas (BV) was hit with a cyber-attack. BV handles vessel/ship classification.
  • From our Friends at the NH Information and Analysis Center: The below tips are just a few reminders of how to be cyber-safe during the holiday season.
    • Use caution with e-mails. Avoid clicking on links in unsolicited or suspicious emails and be wary of email attachments. It is always best to go to the site by searching the known and trusted URL and not using the one provided to you. It is also important to verify the sender by contacting them through a known and trusted contact method.
    • Be mindful of scam calls and text messages. It is important to only shop through trusted sources and do not give out personal information over the phone unless it is a trusted source.
    • If it sounds too good to be true, it likely is. Whether the cyber actor is redirecting you to a fake fraudulent site that appears to be legitimate or is posting a malvertisement (malicious advertisement) with the goal of spreading malware to your system. It is important to verify all ADs by going directly to the known, trusted site.
    • Don’t share your information. Most retailers do not need to know our date of birth or social security number for you to simply purchase a gift or gift card. If a retailer is asking for this information, be wary and consider shopping elsewhere.
    • Check your online statements frequently. This will help prevent and catch any criminals in the act of using your credit or debit cards.
  • Check out the up-dated Indicators section.
