Cyber Crime in the news…Ty Sagalow reports on government/industry responses to Cyber Risk


Cybercrime and Cyber Risk are making headlines. Recently, Federal Prosecutors charged a gang of hackers from Russia and the Ukraine with stealing 160 million credit card numbers from more than a dozen companies. Authorities said it’s “the largest hacking scheme in U.S. history.” Some of the same hackers were accused of computer attacks on Citibank, PNC Bank and the Nasdaq stock exchange as well. And earlier this year, an international ring of cyber thieves stole $40 million in 10 hours from ATMs in more than two dozen countries.

Ty Sagalow, president of Innovation Insurance Group, joined to discuss the impact of cybercrime on companies and infrastructure, what governments and insurers are doing to mitigate cyber losses, and developments in cyber risk insurance coverages.
