Cyber Private Eyes Go After Hackers, Without Counterattacking

Wall Street Journal - October 18, 2021

Companies hit by hackers typically limit themselves to playing defense to comply with a federal law against invading someone’s computer. But some specialist cybersecurity firms say they can pursue criminals without launching their own attacks. Most cybercrimes in the U.S. fall under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, a 1986 law that prohibits unauthorized access of computer systems. The law effectively places offensive cybersecurity actions solely in the hands of the federal government.

How Insurers Play a Big Role in Spurring Cybercrime

MarketWatch.com - October 1, 2021

Organizations with cyberinsurance are more than twice as likely to pay ransoms as those without, according to a global survey commissioned by U.K.-based cybersecurity and software firm Sophos of 1,823 companies, governments, health systems, and other organizations that had been hit by ransomware. This is one of the first times such data have been gathered that show the extent of the relationship between cyberinsurance and ransomware payments. Critics say that relationship helps fuel a ransomware economy that the federal government estimates causes $445 billion in damages to the global economy every year.
