Cyber risks are constantly changing as bad actors develop new ways to use malware, phishing schemes, distributed denial of service attacks and other applications to cause disruptions and capture information from computer systems worldwide. Their goal can be obtaining money through ransom, seizing intellectual property or proprietary information, or causing damage to infrastructure and physical property. No entity is immune to these risks, which means the number of claims will only increase.
