Cyber Risks: Malware Present In New Electronics?


Cyber risks are everywhere nowadays with the increase in manufacturing new and innovative technology and electronics for consumers. Even though cyber security measures have become more advanced, so have cyber criminals.  Cyber security specialists and programmers are constantly trying to stay one step ahead, while also having to adjust and repair any breaches in security the best they can.

With the recent activities of Lulz Security, commonly referred to as LulzSec, the notorious hacker group that claimed responsibility for taking the CIA’s website offline, as well as hacking into Sony and compromising its user’s accounts and personal information, there seems to be a resurgence of cyber hacking in a more public and aggressive form than seen before.

The article Brand New Electronics ‘Already Tainted With Malware,’ by Rob Quinn of Newser, shows how threats and risks could already be present in an electronic device from corrupted hardware and software components.  The possibilities that malware could already be embedded in electronic chips in devices presents a scary possibility for everyone with a computer or cell phone containing personal information or other important documents or items, especially business related. With the growing number of risks and the detrimental effects these risks can have, it appears that protection and insurance against losses is the most sensible and obvious option.  Purchasing a cyber risk insurance policy can help protect against financial losses that can be accrued from identity theft or corporate espionage.
