Helping Cyber Liability Clients

As businesses become increasingly reliant on technology, they are facing new and unprecedented risks. Our Cyber team is able to provide a range of products to help combat these new challenges: cyber liability, technology errors and omissions, professional liability and media liability. We also work to develop strategy and incident response plans, so you can prevent data breaches whenever possible and mitigate any damages should the worst happen. We strive to provide every possible protection in the face of increased cyber threats, a stringent regulatory system, and the potential for significant financial harm.

  • Ransomware is swiftly becoming the most prevalent attack. Cyber criminals are more sophisticated and more adept at identifying sensitive information, leveraging both production data and backups to extort huge sums from victims.
  • Data breaches can be devastating, extracting personally identifiable information and misdirecting financial transactions with significant potential for a costly investigation, litigation and reputational harm.
  • Increased reliance on technology makes organizations more susceptible to business interruption from malicious attack, human error, or technological malfunction.
  • Third party vendors and service providers are just as susceptible to cyberattacks and technology failures, leaving your business open to supply chain disruptions that can cause crippling financial damage.
  • Businesses and insurers face increased regulatory risk at the local, state, federal and international levels. New laws place onerous requirements on data collection practices and may impose significant fines.

Assessment and analytics. Key vulnerabilities, threats, claims trends, loss modeling and limit benchmarking.

• Risk mitigation. Action plan for areas of improvement with tabletop exercises, employee training, and incident response planning. We also encourage a thorough investigation of vendor partnerships with penetration testing, multifactor authentication and endpoint detection.

• Specialty market knowledge and real world experience. With strong relationships with key insurers to achieve the most comprehensive coverage at the best available price.

Avoiding a Major Loss

Case Study

Avoiding a Major Loss

On a Friday before a recent July 4th weekend, a small, regional accounting firm discovered a breach of its database, primarily targeting clients who were expecting to receive five-figure tax refunds. Hackers stole the credentials of employees who were filing the tax returns, and they changed the bank account numbers on the returns to ones the hackers controlled.


The accounting firm called the toll-free number on their cyber insurance policy to report the incident. When they hadn’t heard back by noon on Saturday, they contacted Risk Strategies’ Cyber Risk response hotline, and within an hour, Risk Strategies had the client in touch with the right experts to assist with the investigation and notify regulators and those affected. In the end, the accounting firm’s insurance company paid a claim of approximately $250,000, including protection for the firm’s clients who had been hacked.
