Case Study:
Manufacturer victim of an email hack

A Raw materials manufacturer’s system was hacked via an email they received carrying a Ransomware virus. The virus prevented them from having any access to emails and their network. The hacker held the manufacturer’s system to ransom and would only release files if the client paid $12,500 in Bitcoin.

The fact that the manufacturer had numerous file shares and common storage areas made their system particularly vulnerable to attack and made it easy for the hacker to encrypt nearly every file in their system.

The manufacturer paid the $12,500 in ransom.

The manufacturer was able to recover the $12,500 ransom paid under their cyber policy. The policy also paid an additional $25,000 in IT expenses related to diagnosing the problem, decommissioning the old servers and installing a new network.

It’s Time to Review your Cover

Does your insurance program need a fresh set of eyes? Are you getting the most out of your insurance program?

We often find that insurance buyers are made aware of deficiencies in their policies when its too late, i.e. when their claim is denied by the insurer. One size does not fit all when it comes to insurance policies.

All too often “off the shelf” insurance products don’t cater for risks specific to your business.

CMX can provide obligation free review services, such as:

  • Review and audit of your existing insurance program or policies.
  • Identify uninsured risks and assess the impact it may have on your business if untreated.
  • Examine your claims history through cyber insurance solutions and explore the potential benefits or risks associated with adjusting your deductibles.
  • Explore your risk tolerance and help you use insurance as a risk transfer tool.
