With the number of cyber attacks on the rise, it’s natural to think that this increase of cyber attacks is due to new actors and technological developments, said Yakir Golan, the CEO of Kovrr, the Tel Aviv-based provider of predictive cyber risk modeling solutions.
“The truth of the matter is, cyber attacks are very often a modified version of an old attack. Whether it’s the same attack vector, same tools or the same vulnerability with a new exploitation, similar types of attacks, methods and techniques are likely to reappear in the near future and re/insurers should be prepared and on the lookout for how they can affect their portfolios,” added Golan.
