Is your business prepared for a ransomware attack?
The facts are staggering. Cybercrime is up 600% due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and ransomware attacks are estimated to cost $6 trillion annually by 2021 per PurpleSec. Now is not the time to find your insurance does not cover you in case of an attack.
Miles Jobgen, director of the CompTIA Cybersecurity Community, welcomes Michael Goldstein, president of Lan Infotech, and Matt Moossa, regional director of technology and life sciences underwriting at The Hartford, to discuss CompTIA’s newest member benefit and the importance of cyber insurance for every company.
This new benefit is available to CompTIA corporate members through a portal that provides full access to resources, tools, and information on how to help mitigate cyber risk and how to respond in the event of a breach. You can also receive a quote from The Hartford in real time.
