Please check out: “If Your System Was Attacked By ‘Backoff’ Malware, Would Your Insurance Cover A Data Breach Involving Credit Card Numbers?”
I wrote a post that discusses the disclosure of so-called “Backoff” malware by the Department of Homeland Security. I also discuss and how insurance might apply to retailers and card processors facing a data privacy incident (or a data breach) with allegedly exposed credit cards, debit cards, and payment cards in general as a result of a Backoff malware attack.
You can find the post on my firm‘s insurance recovery and insurance coverage blog, the BT Policyholder Protection Blog. My future insurance-related posts will be found there.
