Law firm dishes cyber aftermath

Cyber attacks have become common place across the business landscape in the last decade and with recent attacks focused on Australia, one leading law firm has released its advice on what to do after a data breach.

With high profile cases across the United States, and the hacking of Aussie Travel Cover earlier this year, no industry in Australia is safe.

While you may be adept at selling cyber insurance coverage, do you know what to do in the event of a hack on your own systems as well as those of your clients?

Wotton & Kearney partner, Patrick Boardman, stressed that 2015 could be a major year of online disruption.

“Since the start of 2015 there have been 2 serious hacking attacks in the US and Australia. It is currently understood that up to 80 million records held by the US health insurer, Anthem, and up to 770,000 records held by Australian travel insurer, Aussie Travel Cover, were compromised in the attacks.
