Multinational food and beverage company, Mondelez, has launched a legal case against its insurance provider, Zurich after it rejected a $100 million (£78.5 million) claim for damage caused by a ransomware attack.
The firm, which owns the Cadbury, Toblerone and Ritz brands, was hit twice by NotPetya ransomware in 2017. Mondelez claimed that the attack had left 1,700 of its servers and 24,000 laptops “permanently dysfunctional”.
It said its property insurance policy with Zurich covered “physical loss or damage to electronic data, programs, or software, including physical loss or damage caused by the malicious introduction of machine code or instruction”.
Cybercriminals are becoming more sophisticated and more creative in architecting attacks.
Today’s integrated technology ecosystems not only allows IT networks to be used to mount attacks on OT networks, but insecure OT devices can now also provide a pathway back into corporate IT systems.
Sapien’s solution accounts for the complex and ever-changing threat landscape, using advanced intrusion detection techniques combined with threat intelligence that is effective in both IT and OT environments.
Threats to critical infrastructure are now so advanced that they require an industrial cybersecurity solution that combines advanced technologies, machine learning and human intelligence to protect networks against the complex range of attack scenarios they are vulnerable to.
Sapien has developed a solution that changes the cybersecurity landscape forever.
