October 2023 Broker Update

Dare to keep up with the threat landscape? Our Q3 Ransomware Report is live.

We put together the scariest ☠️ short story possible (seven words, if you’re counting) that encapsulates both the spirit of Halloween 🎃 and Cybersecurity Awareness Month:

“Ransomware is up 95.1% from last year.” ❗

Not scared yet?

“Q3 2023 has the most ransomware victims ever.” ❗❗ 

And this is all based on a true story (AKA threat intel data).

Not a bad time to work with a cyber insurer that reduces the likelihood and cost of cyber breaches by 20% for engaged policyholders (and rewards engaged policyholders with 25% off their retention).

A shameless plug — now that’ll scare you! As always, send in your quote requests to submissions@corvusinsurance.com 📥

Threat Intel Header 1

Our Q3 Ransomware Report is live! Our Threat Intel team unveils that threat actors are overachievers — no summer vacations for them — and likely won’t take any time for R&R later this year, either.

In fact, if attacks continue at their current rate, this could be the first year with over 4,000 ransomware victims posted on leak sites.

We'll also cover:

  • Which industries are being hit the hardest
  • The impact of CLOP’s MOVEit exploit
  • And what to think about that unusually short summer slowdown

Tips Header 1

From SVP, Risk + Response Lauren Winchester and CISO, Jason Rebholz

Yes, October is #CybersecurityAwarenessMonth.

But if you work with Corvus (and read this newsletter), we assume that you are up-to-date on threats, knowledgeable about security controls, and generally “aware.”

 That’s why ran with #AttackPreventionMonth instead. To focus on the future of attacks — and what stops them. Sometimes, it’s a little more complicated than MFA. 

Stay informed: Members of our Threat Intelligence, Cybersecurity, and Risk Advisory teams discussed current trends and best practices for orgs to improve their cybersecurity on Tuesday.
