IT & Cyber Risk

Our IT and Cyber Risk Practice provides sound and accurate information for claims and risk pricing.

We have found that a case by case approach is demanded by each industry sector. Increasing reliance upon Cloud and other third party vendors can lead to unknown factors.

Types of Data Breach

There is a misconception that most breaches are caused by malicious attacks. However it is actually human and system error that represents the majority of breaches.

Examples of common data breaches include:

  • Loss of unencrypted portable devices

  • Stray emails, letters, faxes, documents

  • Inadequate destruction of data
  • Technical security failures

  • Malware / virus attacks (unsecured networks)

  • Denial of service attacks
  • Property crimes (stolen computers, mobile phones, USB drives)

  • Inside job (employee steals information)

  • Phishing scams
  • Spear-phishing (social engineering)
  • Advanced persistent threats
