Q&A with our Cyber partners
Our Cyber team recently reached out to their partners and asked a series of questions on the Cyber attacks seen in 2020 and their predictions for the year ahead.
- Justin James & Vijay Rathour - Grant Thornton
- Anthony Hess - Asceris

- Kieran Doyle - Wotton + Kearney Australia
- Madeline Shanks - Clyde & Co UK

We asked the following questions:
- What were the key attack vendors in 2020 and how did the threat landscape evolve?
- How did the Covid-19 pandemic/remote working affect the number, frequency or severity of claims? Were particular sectors more targeted than others?
- What were the biggest drivers of costs, and why?
- Is underreporting of claims still an issue?
- Were there more or less regulator notifications in 2020?
- Did you see an increase in privacy class actions in 2020?
- What coverage issues are emerging and how have these been impacted by recent OFAC guidance on ransomware payments?
