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.
