Challenge: A mid-sized company was notified that its property insurance provider would no longer cover physical damage caused by a cyber event.
Challenge: A large insured sought greater certainty about what would be covered and what would not if faced with a cyber event.
Challenge: A successful phishing attack left an insured’s computer network infected with ransomware. Several servers on the insured’s network were encrypted and the threat actor demanded $200,000 for a decryption key.
Solution: AIG met with the broker and client to discuss primary first-party property damage and property network interruption coverage via AIG’s CyberEdge Plus insurance policy, which the client ultimately purchased.
Solution: AIG’s affirmative cyber strategy helps clients to clearly understand and communicate with key stakeholders about how their AIG policies will respond to a cyber event.
Solution: The insured reported the matter to AIG Claims, which coordinated the retention of law and forensics firms. The forensic firm determined that no files had been infected and was able to restore data from backup files. After consulting with authorities, the law firm determined that no formal notifications were necessary.
Benefit: The insured filled a key coverage gap, receiving greater certainty that it had insurance coverage for its physical cyber exposure.
Benefit: The insured has greater certainty of coverage to help it clearly and confidently communicate to its board how its AIG policies will respond. Additionally, AIG’s Cyber claims team can offer support if they experience, or just suspect they’ve experienced, a cyber event.
Benefit: The insured was supported by AIG’s cyber claims team and our relationships with specialized legal and forensic firms to help facilitate their response to the event and return to full operations. The insured did not pay the ransom and the legal and forensic work was covered by the CyberEdge policy.
