Cyber Insurance in Action

The Client

A medical services business with 6 staff and $3.2m in revenue.

The Claim

The Insured’s system, which held confidential medical information on their patients, was compromised by a ransomware attack. As the Insured could not access their patients’ medical data, they were unable to operate.

The Outcome

IT Forensic Consultants were appointed to fix damage to the Insured’s system and investigate if the hacker still had access to the system. A law firm was also appointed to assist the remediation process and advise if the client had to report the matter to the Privacy Commissioner. Payment of $63,000 was made in relation to business interruption loss, forensics and legal costs.
