Over the years, technology have been evolving at a dizzying pace. Consequently, fraudsters and cybercrimes have kept up with these advancements, causing remarkable damages to companies and institutions by infiltrating security systems with a wide variety of creative techniques. The implications of such attacks, be it loss of data, property or large amounts of money is often debilitating and may lead companies to seek their insurance providers for some coverage.
