      Beazley Breach Insight: Middle-market cyber attacks rise during the pandemic

      Global breach data shows rise in social engineering scamsNew York, Sept. 16, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Specialist insurer Beazley has reported that middle market organizations have been especially hard hit by online social engineering attacks during the pandemic. In the second quarter (Q2) of 2020, cybercriminals targeted businesses that remained open during lockdown where many employees were working remotely, making them more susceptible to cyber attacks.Of all the social engineering attacks reported to Beazley Breach Response (BBR) Services globally in Q2, 60% of organizations targeted were in the middle market (defined as over $35 million in annual revenue), up from 46% in Q1.Social engineering involving a system infiltration remained at a steady rate in the first half of the year. Fortunately, in more than 80% of reported incidents, the attack is stopped before a direct financial loss occurs.Kimberly Horn, Beazley’s global claims team lead for cyber & tech, said: “Middle market organizations have been resilient in maintaining their day-to-day operations during the pandemic and, in turn, their employees are more available to be targeted. Additionally, cybercriminals are executing more sophisticated attacks and middle market organizations provide richer targets.As our global breach data has demonstrated, if an incident is responded to early enough, an organization can often avoid a direct financial loss such as stolen funds. Modest investments in training and process changes could reduce the likelihood of falling victim.”Fraudulent instruction attacks also primarily hit middle market organizations, which were the target in 55% of incidents, compared to 24% in Q1. In looking at individual sectors, healthcare, financial institutions, manufacturing, real estate, and education were the most targeted industries in Q2. The full Beazley Breach Insight report including tips on preventing social engineering and business email compromise is available here.Note to editors:Beazley plc (BEZ.L) is the parent company of specialist insurance businesses with operations in Europe, the US, Canada, Latin America and Asia.

      Beazley enhances cyber and media & technology insurance offering in Canada

      Streamlined policies offer 360 degree protection to Canadian businesses against cyber risksToronto, Sept. 09, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Specialist insurer Beazley has enhanced its flagship Beazley Breach Response (BBR) and media & technology (MediaTech) policies for businesses in Canada.As part of Beazley’s ongoing commitment to providing easy to understand policies, the insurer has streamlined these key policy wordings to ensure clarity for brokers and customers in Canada. Cyber extortion, business interruption (BI), dependent business interruption and eCrime coverages have now been integrated into the main policy, rather than being added by endorsement.The BBR policy provides a complete privacy breach response management and information security insurance solution for small to medium-sized businesses. It includes breach response services in addition to first-party coverage for BI, dependent BI, cyber extortion, and data recovery costs as well as eCrime for fraudulent instruction, funds transfer and telephone fraud. MediaTech is designed to provide comprehensive errors and omissions (E&O) insurance to cover technology-based services and products, non-technology professional services, unintended breach of contract for professional liability exposure, online and offline media, copyright or trademark infringement. Cyber coverage has also been incorporated into the policy and includes breach response costs, first and third party coverage as well as eCrime.In addition to BBR policyholders, MediaTech customers can now access resources for incident response planning, employee training, compliance, and security best practices via BBR Services' global risk management portal, beazleybreachsolutions.com. Further resources including expert webinars providing education on the latest threats, preventive steps and regulatory requirements are also available via the portal.Alessandro Lezzi, head of international cyber & tech at Beazley, said: “To support Canadian businesses during today’s environment of heightened cyber and security risks and increasing litigiousness, Beazley’s BBR and MediaTech policies are designed to provide 360 degree protection through streamlined, easy to interpret wordings. The increasingly complex risk landscape requires clear coverage that will protect businesses on many fronts and support them with great service and responsiveness should they experience a loss.”Rhea Turchinetz, cyber & tech underwriter and head of Beazley’s Vancouver office, said: “Canadian businesses face a growing cyber threat that is always evolving as we have seen during this pandemic. More of us logging onto work IT networks remotely has created additional security issues that employers and their workforce need to be alert to. BBR and MediaTech are designed to help companies to build their resilience against these threats as well as provide protection and financial support in the event of a claim.” The offering is supported by an award-winning claims and breach response services team. Recently, Beazley was named Insurer of the Year at the 2020 Advisen Cyber Risk Awards and the BBR Services team was awarded the distinction of Pre-Breach Team of the Year.Note to editors:Beazley plc (BEZ.L) is the parent company of specialist insurance businesses with operations in Europe, the US, Canada, Latin America and Asia.
