Top 5 Requested Cyber Insurance Coverages

Cyber-Insurance-Coverages_blog-header

This is a guest post from Adam Hengst cyber insurance advisor at Camargo Insurance - an independent, award-winning agency specializing in cyber insurance nationwide.

Cyber-attacks are increasingly more sophisticated and costly. As a result, cyber insurance is becoming a requirement for many businesses and helps reduce the risk of business-critical damage when a cyber-attack occurs.
__________________________

The rise in remote work spurred by the pandemic has created a 67% increase in the frequency of cyber-attacks. The costs of cyber-attacks add up quickly between attorney fees, costs of forensics and third-party security tools, as well as notification costs. The pandemic has also accelerated the rate of digitalization; rarely-targeted sectors have become some of the most targeted industries. The rapid increase in demand for cybersecurity providers has opened more jobs than people to fill them. With this increase, there's been a rise in media coverage, causing an increase in the number and size of cyber insurance policies purchased.

Top 10 Ransomware Scenarios: How Cybercriminals Are Entering Your Environment

Top-10-Ransomware-Scenarios-blog-header

Mitigate risk for your environment by identifying the top 10 ransomware infection vectors and how to protect them!
___________________________

Ransomware Will Continue to Get Worse

Ransomware is a specific kind of malicious software used by cybercriminals to render data or systems inaccessible for extortion or ransom. In a standard ransomware attack, the cybercriminal achieves unauthorized access to a victim's network and installs the Ransomware in locations that typically have sensitive data. Then, they execute the attack and lock the files on that network – making them inaccessible to the victim until the ransom is paid.

Ransomware is becoming one of the most used cyber-attack methods to exploit your organization's data. Global headlines of increasingly damaging ransomware attacks are becoming more and more common – like the recent Colonial Pipeline attack. Organizations can combat ransomware by using infection vectors to identify the most common points of entry used by attackers. Infection vectors are the method in which a cybercriminal gains access or infiltrates your online network or systems to exploit private information. Once identified, an organization can adjust its security efforts accordingly – mitigating risk and potentially extremely costly ransomware scenarios.

Backup & Recovery Strategies: Is Your Office 365 Data Protected?

Office-365-Backup-Recovery-Strategies_Metallic_Blog-Header

Your Office 365 data is critical to the success of your business.

Are you protecting it appropriately?
____________________________________________________________________

Modern Data Management & Backup Strategies

Interlink has seen many organizations fall behind in their data management and backup strategy – and thus incur risks. Organizations must look at not only data centers and endpoints, but also at their Office 365 data to ensure their environment is properly protected and mitigating risk. Microsoft Office 365 monthly active usage is continually growing across the world – and e-mail, calendar items, OneDrive, SharePoint, and Teams files cannot be overlooked for businesses to be adequately prepared for backup/recovery scenarios.

Microsoft provides native backup/recovery capabilities, though third-party solutions can offer extended data protection and granular recovery options - for SLA (Service Level Agreement) compliance and rapid recovery from deletion, corruption, or attack. Best practices for data protection include having multiple copies of your data (housed outside source and production environments), proper retention policies, and a data strategy that doesn’t solely rely on on-premises technology. Many organizations need to keep data longer for industry requirements, legal reasons, and to meet compliance or regulatory bodies. While retention policies are important, they do not substitute for a true backup which should capture configurations/settings/security/etc. that are focused beyond the content level.
