What Major Data Breaches Tell Us About Cybersecurity Today
Another day, another data breach. This past Friday Marriott International revealed that hackers had breached its Starwood reservation system as far back as 2014 and had stolen the personal data of up to 500 million guests. In the aftermath, Senator Ed Markey of Massachusetts described data breaches as "a black cloud hanging over the United States' bright economic horizon." So black that another Senator, Ron Wyden of Oregon, went on to declare that "until companies like Marriott feel the threat o

Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Cryptojacking
This article originally appeared in Advisen FPN on October 23, 2018. From the hacker’s perspective, it’s the perfect crime. Cyber criminals use your organization’s computing power to mine cryptocurrency, without you even realizing you’ve been compromised. Maybe you notice that your organization's computers are running slower and more sluggishly than usual. Perhaps you receive an unusually high bill from one of your web services providers. There’s no data loss, no business interruption, none of

10 costs your cyber insurance policy may not cover (unless it’s with Coalition)
Dark Reading, long one of the most widely-read cyber security news sites on the web, recently ran a story warning of the “10 Costs Your Cyber Insurance Policy May Not Cover [https://www.darkreading.com/risk/10-costs-your-cyber-insurance-policy-may-not-cover/d/d-id/1330888] .” We noticed this as well. Most cyber insurance policies simply do not cover many of the real-world risk exposures companies face as they embrace technology (and all of its consequences). This is one of the reasons why we fou
