    I bet if Insurance would not cover these events, they would stop happening.

    Thanks, Sonali Basak and Jenny Surane for letting hackers know they can demand higher ransom. Other topics you might want to write stories about; how to take down the power grid, and how to build a nuclear bomb.

    My office took every precaution against ransomware including disabling all emails on our network and we found out our landlord installed a DVR on our firewall rendering our $1000.00 a month in security we pay useless. It has been 5 months my data has now almost all been restored and both Hartford and Nationwide my carriers have denied everyone of our claims nor our they being helpful in helping us pay or tell us what our policy coverage amounts our and how we can be reimbursed. Hartford representative is useless she will not give information on how much insurance we have in cyber activities. Is always on vacation and wants to steer me away from my claim. Telling me they could have goy]tten back faster, I am really disappointed by Hartford never file insurance claims but we had to rebuild 3 years of lost dats we paid random so we got data back but took my IT people months to recover, clean up and migrate 30 years of data.
